Havasu Falls set to reopen in February to visitors after almost 3 years

Coverage of tribal natural resources is supported in part by Catena Foundation

The Havasupai Tribe announced that it is reopening Havasu Falls on Feb. 1. The famous waterfalls near the Grand Canyon were a major tourism draw before COVID-19 restrictions were put in place.

The Havasupai Tribe closed Havasu Falls in March 2020 in response to the coronavirus pandemic. The area also experienced intense flooding back in October.

With the lifting of restrictions, the tribe is providing information for those who are scheduled to visit for the month of February. Those who do visit must follow coronavirus protocols and wear a mask in public places, according to the Havasupai Tribe Tourism Office. People interested in touring the area and visiting the falls must make reservations online.

No new reservations are being accepted for 2023.
