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.

Well worth the extra travel time from Phoenix. It takes 2 additional hours to arrive here but with 90% less tourist, it is wonderful. I only wish it was open for more than a few months / year.

How can you not give this place 5 stars?! It is breathtaking. My girlfriend and I did a rim to rim backpacking trip through the canyon which I feel is the only way to really experience the ENTIRE canyon. I HIGHLY recommend it if you have the means. On the rim, I really do not think you want to spend... More

It is less crowded than south rim but if you don't plan to do somewhat longer more committed hikes it will require much more driving from point to point. It is much more civilized than I thought it would be but still further away from everything so be prepared if planning on hiking by bringing the basics. Water, proper clothes... More

the north rim is harder to get to for most people traveling. i guess thats what makes it so much like a secret spot,really. a quick stop at jacobs lake for a yummy breakfast,don't forget the fresh pastries to go. a long trip up the 8800 feet in elevation puts you on top of the world. the weather seems more...

The North Rim at the Grand Canyon is just spectacular. I did not know what the RIM meant, but figured it out, and If anyone who is not from this country is reading this, the word RIM may be confusing, in addition if anyone else wants to know what the RIM means, here it is according to this trip advisor...

It was the best view of the Grand Canyon... Loved that there were no tourist busses, tours, and tourists screaming....love the walkways and the LODGE was perfect

Tremendous rim side views without having to hike too far. I see there are cabins to hire there ... What a superb location. Parking wasn't a problem but in high season can imagine it gets more crowded. $30 entrance fee to the park.

The North Rim is smaller in size, more intimate in its setting and in my opinion more beautiful than the south rim. The Lodge is perched right on the edge and the two adjoining patio areas allow seating that overlooks the canyon. Large panes of glass allow uninterrupted vistas for visitors to experience its magnitude directly from the lodge. There... More
