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.

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.

The North Rim is absolutely spectacular. I haven't been to the South yet but several people I met there told me the views here are more stunning comparatively. All of the services were shut down (closest was Jacob Lake) but I was given a map and info by the friendly ranger who greeted me. I was in the park about... More

The North Rim of the Grand Canyon is less visited than the South Rim. There was almost nobody there when we went in November. The views are as spectacular as what you would see at the South Rim, but in many spots, you get a wider angle view of the canyon. The North Rim is more rugged and harder to... More

Day hike of 12.5 hours from North Kaibab to Bright Angel, early August 2016. Having hiked in the Alps, the Karakoram, New Zealand and a few other places, yes, I can confirm this is one of THE hikes to do in a lifetime. One should not hike alone, not attempt to do the Rim to Rim at the height of... More
