Horses & Mules at Havasu Falls

The details

Horses & Mules seem like a natural part of the canyon. You can Ride, Send your packs, or even bring your own horse. Horseback riding in the grand canyon is not as strenuous as hiking but you will be sore in different ways!

Riding a Horse to Havasu Falls

Hiring horses is also available to those who aren’t too excited about a 10 mile hike. You must arrange this about a week before your visit and you must already have a reservation to camp or lodge.

If staying at the lodge, they can arrange the horses for you. If camping, the tourism office will handle your horse reservation

Sending your Gear on a Mule Havasu Falls

If it’s just the heavy pack that worries you, not the hike, you can send your gear on a mule. Same as riding, you must arrange this about a week before your reserved date.
