Explore Navajo culture and history on this Llama supported backpacking trip!
Explore the remote backcountry between Navajo Mountain and Rainbow Bridge on this pack llama supported backpacking adventure. Thanks to these friendly animals, you can enjoy breathtaking wilderness without having to haul everything you need for a comfortable camping experience.
A rejuvenating getaway
The seminar begins with an overnight Lodge stay in Paige, AZ. From there, ditch your cars, and load into our 4-wheel drive vehicles to head into the wilderness. We will connect with our Navajo host family for an evening and then spend the following four days hiking 14 miles of the historic Rainbow Trail. Our slow pace allows time for side exploration, cultural sightseeing, and relaxing evenings at a comfortable camp.
Focus on the moment – Connect to the place
You are here to experience rich southwestern culture! Come ready to immerse yourself within the breathtaking scenery, and let us worry about the details. Your CFI guides are responsible for cooking filling meals throughout the trip, driving the rugged roads to trailheads, and providing any necessary first aid and safety gear. Our llama friends will carry the bulk of our gear so that you are unburdened and able to explore at your own pace.
