Havasu Falls Remains Closed Through 2022

The famous Havasu Falls near Grand Canyon National Park will remain closed to tourists for at least the rest of 2022. Havasupai lands have been closed to hikers and sightseers throughout the pandemic. The Havasupai Tribal Council announced the extension of the closure in early May.

According to the National Park Service, reservations made between June 1-Dec. 31 will be rescheduled for the same dates in 2023. No new reservations will be available until the tourism suspension is lifted. 

“The Havasupai Tribe appreciates your ongoing patience and looks forward to once again welcoming tourists back to Supai,” Council Chairman Thomas Siyuja Sr. said in a statement on the tribe’s website. Tribal spokesperson Abbie Fink said various repairs are needed because of the extended Covid-related closure.
