Overview

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.

We went in mid November, and thought that it would be closed, not at all (no snow)...so it was almost empty...Stunning Stunning scenery.....impossible to explain just how impressive this place is...and it is not commercialised like the south rim

The "North Rim" is only open from mid-May through mid-October. The elevation is higher (over 8000') so it is cooler than the south rim. We recently visited for the first time and found it to be less congested and touristy than the south side. We...More

The North rim has beautiful views and is less crowded than the south rim. It is a good place for backwoods camping and hardcore hiking.

If you're just going to look at it, it's breath taking especially if you come close to the edge! To visit and not do any activities like riding mules to the bottom isn't the full experience, but we came and saw, so it can be...More

The North Rim offers just as scenic views as the South Rim with a fraction of the crowds. The elevation is also a little bit higher and so it's slightly cooler. We saw buffalo on our way in as well.

It was a fantastic view of the Grand Canyon from the North Rim. Visibly fewer people, meaning that there is less crowding at the beautiful view points. There are many interesting trails, for various difficulty levels. Stayed in the Log Cabin. It was a good...More

We went to the North Rim first just one week before they closed for the winter (October 15). The North Rim is not as crowded than the South Rim and it makes it a more pleasant experience. We walked around the rim and had some...More

The view took us the breath away. We also slept close by the rim. The walk on the rim is something you can’t miss.

Sorry I haven't answered your question earlier. I saw people riding on mules. There is a traveller's centre at the North Rim, as there is for the South, and they would be able to tell you where to hire them. I think mules... More
