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.

I took an airplane to look over this place. It would make you to glance all over at once, and you can feel the depth of the canyon rocks.

Just an awesome experience. Absolutely breathtaking views of the canyon. No crowds, in June. Highs in the 80s when the rest of Arizona was baking. We stayed in the motel, which was basic but plenty good enough. The cabins were just about as far away from the rim, other than one or two, and nothing was more than a 5-min.... More

I had never been to the Grand Canyon, but my expectations were very high. And I was definitely not disappointed. It is beautiful, beyond words and worthy of the time to get there and see it.

Bucket list priority! From this rim, you see a very different canyon than the South Rim. The lighting is altogether different, but the awe is still the same.

This was so amazing. I couldn't get enough of the views. There were trails to hike for all levels. We hiked Bright Angel Point, Angels Window and Cape Royal Point. They were all easy with breath taking views. Keep your eyes on the meadow as you get close to the park entrance there was a herd of bison that were... More

I read that the North Rim is not seen by many because it is a longer trip to get to the view point. I am glad I went to the North Rim, My wife and I saw the Buffalo herd that lives at the park! No fences, just wild Buffalo. The view was great and there are many viewing spots... More

We saw the north rim while standing on the edge of the south rim - I guess. It was colorful, flat, and far, far away - on the other side of the Colorado River.

Pictures or video does not do it justice. The colors and rocks are beyond words. My two teenage grand kids were amazed. It takes better part of day to just go to the viewing areas with out any hiking.
