Phantom Ranch is one of the hardest reservations to snag in the U.S. The place—which offers bunks and rustic cabins at best—is definitely not luxurious. But, it does offer something that no other lodging property can compete with: Location, location, location.
Nestled along the Colorado River, some 5,800 feet below the North Rim of the Grand Canyon, there is no other place quite like Phantom Ranch. The rustic oasis and lodge was built in 1922 and remains the only lodging facility within the canyon. So it’s no surprise that it’s one of the hardest reservations to snag in the National Park System, let alone the country. Cabins and dormitories can sell out within two hours the day they become available, 13 months in advance! But you don't have to worry about the hassle of booking these modest accommodations! We've got your back!
Once you’ve stayed at Phantom Ranch, you become a part of an exclusive club of people who know—the ones who truly understand and appreciate the grandeur of the Grand Canyon. That’s because from the top, it’s hard to really grasp the magnitude of this special place. But for the hearty souls who are willing to work for it—less than one percent of the five million annual Grand Canyon visitors—the real magic lies below the rim. We will hike an amazing 10 miles in to reach Phantom Ranch and then back out a few days later.
The Sun Up Estate is one of Sedona's premier properties. The home is 3700 square feet and all on one level with a clean & modern yet comfortable design. With breathtaking views of Sedona's dramatic red rock formations you will enjoy the peace and beauty of pristine views in the red rock rocks.
The amazing pool, spa, and fire pit at the home are a great way to relax after hiking or site seeing. The Sun Up Estate sits in the heart of Sedona yet feels secluded and quiet with plenty of opportunity to relax and rejuvenate. You will be surrounded by nature yet close enough to town to easily go out and enjoy the amazing cuisine of Sedona!
This home will not disappoint and sits close to trails that can be accessed right from the house! You will be able to enjoy hiking and mountain biking right from your front door. The Sun Up Estate is very close to Bell Rock, one of the amazing and most powerful vortexes we will visit while in Sedona. You will be able to soak in it's energy while you sleep!
The Canteen at Phantom Ranch is one of the most unique places you will every eat! The Canteen offers hearty breakfasts, box lunches, and dinner choices of hiker’s stew, vegetarian chili or steak dinners to adventurous travelers who journey to the bottom of the Canyon. Steak dinners are served for the early dinner seating with the late seating serving stew and vegetarian chili.
The cuisine in Sedona is absolutely outstanding! We will be dining in for breakfast, most lunches, but will be dining out for dinners to enjoy the fantastic restaurants the area has to offer. Sedona is a great foodie destination where restaurants cater to every taste, from organic vegan options to sophisticated, international cuisine and indulgent, chef-driven menus served amid the legendary Sedona red rocks. Dining in Sedona is one of the main things to do when visiting. From local favorites that cook with only local ingredients to critically acclaimed Sedona fine dining, there is a Sedona restaurant to please every palette. Whether you’re in the mood to dine on spicy Southwestern cuisine, cowboy grub, upscale steaks and seafood, fresh sushi or Asian delicacies, authentic international fare, neighborhood coffee houses, wine tasting and wine tours, beer and burger joints, or even family-friendly favorites, you will find what you need!
Come and enjoy the many wonders of The Grand Canyon & Sedona.
We will hike to Ribbon Falls + The Colorado River during our visit to Phantom Ranch.
Ribbon Falls is one of the loveliest spots in The Grand Canyon. The falls are about 100 feet high, and the mineral rich water has created a giant travertine spire below the falls. After taking a dip in the ice cold pool at the bottom, you can hike up around the falls and stand behind them.
On our second day at Phantom Ranch we will hike down to the amazing Colorado River. We will experience the grandeur and strength of the amazing river that created the Grand Canyon.
While in Sedona we will visit the many energy vortex sites such as Cathedral Rock, Bell Rock & Boynton Canyon.
Some say Sedona’s vortex energy is so powerful that you can actually feel it and that it is powerful enough to help people take giant leaps with their spiritual development. The Native Americans believe that spiritual transformation can occur more quickly and easily in Sedona because the veils to other dimensions are thinner here. Whether or not you believe that energy vortexes actually exist, one thing is for certain, there is “something” about Sedona that has made people travel here for something more than just its incredible beauty.
You will return home with a newfound confidence in your strength and ability to go the distance.
The hike to and from Phantom Ranch will challenge and invigorate you. You will embody an newfound confidence after tackling this bucket list hike!
You will experience an expansion of mind and things that once seemed difficult or out of reach will feel easier and more accessible.
The grandeur of The Grand Canyon and energy in Sedona will expand your mind, heart & soul. You will return home with a bigger view of what is really possible for you physically and in your life!
You will return home with awesome new connections that will support you in your journey.
It never fails. The people you will meet on this adventure will become life-long friends.
