p-back to top

Experience the soul of the American Southwest with this adventurous WAT Weekender. A quick 25-minute drive to the South Rim entrance of Grand Canyon National Park, this safari-style locale offers the perfect luxury camping experience near one of the world's seven natural wonders.


Located just outside Valle, Arizona on 160 secluded acres of beautiful piñon and juniper forest, you will discover the extraordinary grandeur of Grand Canyon National Park while enjoying a variety of extensive adventures a short distance from camp.


Get ready to get your glamp on with fireside chats by night, hikes and horseback riding (if you choose) by day, and a rustic-chic sleep by night. This is getting off the grid at its finest.

About the Trip

You won't want for much on this otherworldly adventure. There is daily housekeeping, organic bath products, a zen garden, s'mores around the fire pit, an adventure concierge, complimentary camp activities, and on-site dining, which includes fresh hot breakfasts, boxed lunches to be taken with us on our excursions and dining at night. There is a full menu of options at each meal, including vegetarian.


You will also have the option to extend your trip for an additional fee. Please inquire upon booking if you are interested in staying any extra days on the front or back end on-site and or if you are interested in booking in the region, in Arizona, on either end of the glamping.

Tour Operator

American Glamping Assoc

We are working with a local tour operator specializing in glamping in some of the top iconic national parks in the US. They know that organizing adventures for a vacation can be stressful! So, they have taken the guesswork out of the glamping and put together some of their favorite tours and adventures. That way, you can focus on the fun and get your glamp on. 


Again, if you want to add any extra days to your glamping and/or within the region, let us know, be it Vegas, Tuscon or Phoenix, or even LA for those coming in from overseas.  We can hel you organize a  bigger trip or stick with this.  


Regardless, we at WAT are adding some extra bells and whistles to this trip. We will have some activities planned around the firepit; we will shoot photos and videos throughout the trip for you to take home with you, and we may have some local guests pop by. Stay tuned!

Final Notes

There is a reason that over 5 million people flock to the Grand Canyon each year, and we feel that it is the perfect place to kick off our WAT Weekender glamping trips. There are countless outdoor activities here, including hiking, white water rafting, horseback riding, and swimming.


During this glamping trip, you will have plenty of time to connect with nature, fellow travelers, and yourself. If you would like to extend your trip and further explore the area, we would be happy to assist you with customized travel plans.
