Shuttle Highlights

We are often asked what we recommend for an optimal Grand Canyon biking experience and this is our answer: the Hermit Road Package!

First off, this is NOT the same thing as the Hermit Road Tour although it follows the same route. It IS a rental/shuttle combo without the guided tour component.  The Hermit Road offers stunning river views, beautiful roads shared only with NPS buses/special need vehicles and stunning rim side paved greenways. This shuttle option allows you to see the best of the Hermit Road without excessive physical exertion and skipping the long uphill climb from the village to Hopi Point.

If you have very young children; prefer to take your time with photographs and spending more time at outlooks; or generally don’t enjoy tour interpretation related to geology and flora and fauna; this is recommended over taking the Hermit Road Tour.

Can you rent an e-bike for a tour?
No, e-bikes are currently not authorized by NPS for tours.

Are there a lot of uphills on Hermit Road Tour?
This route bypasses the very steep sections and has only mild inclines and declines. There is a small section which is too strenuous for some to pedal, and guides with accommodate a slower walking pace through this area to help if needed. 

What’s different about the Hermit and Yaki Tour?
The Yaki tour departs right from the shop so it takes less time. It is more greenway riding and Canyon vistas. There is generally more interaction with people on this route. The Hermit Road tour requires a shuttle and goes to a more remote area of the Park so it takes more time. There are views of the Colorado River and more terrain variety on the Hermit Road tour as well.


We always recommend reservations whenever possible. Walk-up availability is on a first-come-first-serve basis and is on a weather-dependent basis in the winter months.
