Word of mouth has that the more remote, harder to get to and therefore less crowded North Rim offers a more authentic Canyon experience and better views. However, there is no bus service on this rim and it is closed during the winter.

An outstanding North Rim trip is offered through Grand Canyon Airlines, an affiliate of Papillon Helicopters in Boulder City, NV. We were picked up at a Las Vegas hotel(South Point) for the 30-minute drive to their Boulder City Airport. The plane was a small 8-passenger Cessna where each passenger got a window seat. This entire trip takes about 8 hours... More

For me the North Rim is the best. The ever changing light playing on the Canyon is mesmerising. I can sit here for hours to watch the colors come to life.

This is the lesser visited of the rims of the Grand Canyon. However, the beauty is still amazing. There is a visitor center as well as a restaurant and cabins to rent for an overnight stay. Walking trails provide visitors a chance to get a great view of different sides of the canyon. It is well worth a visit. The... More

The north rim is different from south as you will see in everyone's comments. However the north rim requires a car as the stops are fewer and more distant from each other. I suggest you stop by the visitors center to understand your options. I was pleasantly surprised that you will find fewer crowds and cooler weather and different vistas... More

Living in Arizona, I have visited the south rim of the grand canyon many times. The north rim is a much longer drive for me so never made the effort until July 28, 2015 and I am certainly glad I did. It is almost like a totally different park. Even at the peak of summer visitors, the park did not... More

My family was so glad we selected the North Rim. It was beautiful and less crowded. Leave you smart phones at home as service is not great.

We stayed at the cabins at the lodge and hiked from early morning to mid afternoon. Loved the camp store, the lodge dining hall, the bar and the cafe. The visitor center was helpful. The wifi was limited to the lodge but that was ok. The food was great. The vies and hikes great. We did not like kaibob trail... More

The decision to take the Northern route of the Grand Canyon did not leave us disappointed. Our destination was first of all the Great Canyon Lodge.We knew pre-arrival that there were different trails to take from there, and were lucky we had a car as some of the trails and view points are a few miles away from the lodge....
