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.

Amazing views, much different from the south rim. Be careful of the high altitude (9000 feet). We only saw a coyote this trip. Last year we saw a herd of buffalo and a lot of deer. Still, gorgeous and peaceful place.

It's about 185 miles from the south rim to the north rim via the shortest route. We camped at the south rim first, then were treated to the relative isolation of the north rim. The views are just as spectacular, but with 1/10th of the...More

Much more quiet and peaceful then the south rim. The western Cabins are more expensive but closer to the rim. I have stayed in the others rooms as well and all are nice enough. No TV's at the north rim and iffy cell service. That's...More

Instead of the more touristy south rim we opted to go to the North Rim. As with either rim it’ll take a while to get there. We were based in Page, AZ, so it took a little over 2 hours to get there. Note that...More

The views from the North Rim are amazing. Less traffic and higher elevation make it a great location to visit to see the Grand Canyon.

Although the North Rim is less developed and less crowded than the South Rim, it still gets its bus loads of tourists. If you really want to enjoy the Grand Canyon experience, take a walk, find a quiet place, and enjoy the Lodge and lookout...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. .

None of the trails on the North Rim are all that strenuous till you attempt to go into the canyon. But there is plenty to do that is more difficult (e.g., longer) than Bright Angel. I'd start with the Transept Trail -- you... More
