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 Loved the North Rim. It is less touristy than the South Rim. The hikes were beautiful and the gift shop was remarkably reasonably priced, Although I'm from The Bay Area and everything here is exorbitant so I may be a poor judge. The lodge is large and beautiful and has a nice lookout point for those that are unable... More

Wasn't originally on the schedule but added at last minute. We were not disappointed. Less crowded. We walked the easy trails. The elevation can make you a little short of breath. The views from the lodge are spectacular. There are points that you can sit and have lunch looking at the view.

It doesn't matter how many images and stories about the Grand Canyon you see and hear, you have really got to be there in person. Watching the sun rise and light up the red rocks will stay in my mind forever. You also can't quite grasp the scale of the canyon itself. Well worth a visit

Every one said if you go to the Grand Canyon North Rim or nothing. And you have to stay in the lodge. Well they were right. For starters getting there is not easy and there are no other hotels nearby like south rim. This rated #1 on our National Parks Colorado,Utah and Arizona trip. Mostly because of the shear size...

We have visited the South Rim many times, and this was our first visit to the North Rim. I am greatly humbled. The North Rim is far more spectacular than the South Rim. Enjoy the fabulous lodge, hike the many recommended hikes, and take advantage of the great variety of presentations by the Rangers. Take advantage of seeing the wonders... More

We were at the North Rim to look at the sunrise. It was quit cold early in the morning but the beauty of it was that nobody else was there!

Visited the north rim of the Grand Canyon when in Vegas, took a coach trip down for the day and it was absolutely wonderful. It's definitely a once in a life time experience and I'm so glad we done it. Ticked off the bucket list. The views are breath taking and the little bits of history around it makes it... More

Hike and/or get great pictures without other tourists or selfie sticks. The Lodge is fantastic. Beautiful place to relax, directly overlooking the canyon. Large windowed dining Hall. The Park Ranger Station is very friendly especially to Junior Park Rangers. We will return here (not South RIm).

The last leg of our trip took us to the northern rim. Saw the western 15 years ago, and the southern 2 years ago. The north rim did not disappoint. However the view near the visitors station is not as spectacular as the other two points. Visit them to get the full vista of the northern rim.
