Havasupai Tribal Tourism Department
Payment and Refund Policy
The Havasupai Indian Reservation, located within the Grand Canyon, is home to beautiful blue-green waterfalls. People travel from across the world to Supai, Arizona to experience these waterfalls. As such, it is often very difficult to make reservations for the limited spots available each year. The Havasupai Tribal Tourism Department works diligently to accommodate as many people as possible per year. All individuals entering Supai, Arizona are required to have a reservation. Understand that visiting the Havasupai Indian Reservation is a privilege given by the people of the Havasupai Indian Reservation!
Reservations must be made prior to visiting either by calling the Tourist Office at (928) 448-2121 or through our new Havasupai Online Reservation System at https://www.havasupaireservations.com. If you choose to make your reservations via telephone, phone lines may be busy due to high volume of callers so please be patient. The Tribe will deny access to any individual who does not have a valid reservation to enter. This means that you will have to hike the 8 miles back to Hilltop if you entered without first obtaining a valid reservation. Each individual included on an existing reservation must be listed on the entrance permit upon arrival at the Tourist Office.
The Havasupai Reservation is federal trust land. Trespassing is a violation of Tribal and Federal Law, and is punishable thereunder both civilly and criminally. Entrance upon the Reservation constitutes consent to the civil jurisdiction of the Havasupai Tribe.

Although not anticipated or likely, circumstances may arise that result in the closure of the Havasupai Indian Reservation to tourists. The Havasupai Tourism Department will do its best to post closures on its websites (theofficialhavasupaitribe.com) as promptly as possible. The Havasupai Tribal Tourism Department will also attempt to reschedule the reservations originally scheduled during times of closure. However, due to the high demand for reservations, the Havasupai Tribal Tourism Department cannot guarantee that all reservations will be rescheduled to desired dates. If such closures occur that result in the cancellation of reservations, the Havasupai Tribe will not be responsible for expenses related to a planned trip to Supai, including but not limited to, required fees paid to the Havasupai Tribal Tourism Department, transportation costs, clothing, equipment, medical expenses, hotel reservations, food and helicopter fees.
