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.

Neither words nor pictures can do the Grand Canyon justice. It is a must see. Breathtaking every time. Between the scenic views, wildlife, and general experience, it is truly a unique and worthwhile trip!

Looking back at the memories of all the natural beauty on such a vast scale we might feel some regret that we didn't plan to spend more time to go for longer walks and maybe spend the night.

It's a long ride, 6.5 from West Valley. Cabins we're clean & quiet. No TV's and very sporadic cell service(VZW). Food was very expensive. Buffet dinner was $68.00 for 2. Ouch. However, having been to the South Rim over 10 times, this trip was a...More

A lot less busy and so easy to hike and not feel crowded. Amenities are surprisingly good given the remoteness.

When I planned my trip to the Las Vegas area, I was curious about the roads from Las Vegas to the North Rim. I am very afraid of heights, but I didn't want that to stop me, so I want to write this review for...More

We were on a road trip so had a specific route which meant we had come from Las Vegas and stayed in hurricane so we could visit Bryce Canyon , and Zion national park. Both of which were fantastic. .

I can only answer your first question. Yes, there is a shuttle that transports hikers who travers the canyon back and forth between the North and South Rims. It runs several times a day.
