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.

My husband and I worked up here for 10 seasons; May through October. Much less congested than the South Rim. On this side there is the Kaibab Squirrel. From a distance he almost looks like a skunk, with his pointed ears and fluffy white tai. He is not the same on the South Rim. There is a beautiful lodge here... More

I love the Grand Canyon. The park service does a great job moving visitors from spot to spot. I would never drive, use the busses. Parking is tough. I stayed at the lodge and never moved my car, didn't need to. Take plenty of water at all times.

If was here 10 years ago! If you don't want to take a helicopter tour you can go to skywalk which is stunning! Stunning view and feeling. Worth to get the tickets. Unless you have a little fear of the height, which I have :) despite worth it.

In September 2016, we made the trip from Las Vegas to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. We managed to arrive for the sunset. The Lodge sits right on the Canyon with panoramic views hat can be seen by sitting inside the Grand Canyon Lodge as well as the patios on both sides. We ordered food and sat and... More

Very different from The South Rim. Cooler and more remote. Accesable from Utah. Loved the isolation and fresh air. South Rim is visible. Lovely log cabins. Not nearly as crowded as The South.

Both the North and South rims have to be done, spend a day at each from sunrise till night, and watch how the colours and shadows change, if you time it on a full moon, youd believe you were on another planet. Take a piknik, but not too many beers in the sun, as the edge leads to a rather... More

One of the reasons to come to Vegas in December was to have the opportunity to visit the Grand Canyon in temperatures that wouldn't finish off my partner. Then I started to worry that it would be so cold that it would spoil the experience. I shouldn't have worried, the weather was ideal - brilliant sunshine but cool enough to... More

A busy place but possible to feel alone on a rock outcrop overlooking the Grand canyon. People were very good at giving you a bit of space. Cloud in the canyon created a spectacular scene. Get your camera out from the get go, it changes all the time. The cloud cleared off for a grand view but just quickly as... More

It was fantastic! I have no words to describe their feelings!If you haven't been you're missing something phenomenal. Pictures just don't tell the all story. You have to see it up close and personal.
