Owner description: 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.

There is unlimited views and breathtaking shots all along the North Rim. We rented bikes one day and cycled to Hermit's Rest. On another day we drove to Desert View to visit the Watchtower. Be sure to be there for both sunrise and sunset on different days to have your breath taken away!

The north rim is higher than the south. That's part of why it's closed during the snowy winter months. But it's also isolated -- at the end of a long route far from the tourist Mecca on the south rim -- which is why I recommend coming here during the months while it's open. You'll find lots of peaceful spots free of rumbling tour buses and people with loud voices.

THIS is the quintessential Grand Canyon (not including even more remote parts that basically aren't on the tourist path at all). Plan a few extra days and go!

to celebrate my very special birthday My Husband booked a route 66 trip, driving from Chicago to Santa Monica Beach. Stopping off at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon. The scenery was breath taken and I really enjoyed the sheer beauty of the area. We were booked to stay in the cabins on site. There are two types of cabins. due to a mix up on the first night we were placed in the smaller cabin. This I would avoid as you can hear everything your neighbour says and indeed every thing they do. The second night we were in the bigger cabin. I would pay the extra for the comfort. My one problem with the set up is, you are miles away from any town so you have to use their facilities. The dining room is lovely and the view is fab, but it is very overpriced for what you get . They do have a pizza joint, that also sells sandwiches all very pricey especially if you are there with kids. All in all I enjoyed the remoteness of the North Rim.

We drove the 210 miles from the South rim to the North rim. We had been advised to expect a different perspective. Certainly the shadows, colours and spectacular views were somewhat similar but also totally different as the sunset arrived. We are not hikers but we really enjoyed the walk around the hotel and motel areas.
