Travellers talk about
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.

Totally different to the South Rim. We have now been to both and well worth visiting. It does not take as long to see if you have a limited time. Just absolutely beautiful. Great walking paths along the rim.

The North Rim truly is more spectacular than the South. And a cloudy day was not a detriment, but quite the contrary: it made our color photographs of the rick formations more brilliant. We left Kanab Utah, drove with a stop at Jacob’s Lake, saw...More

We spent only one day there but managed to drive from one end to the other (the Visitor Center to Point Imperial and Cape Royal) and stop at every overlook. We did most of the shorter trails (including Bright Angel, Cliff Spring, Cape Royal and...More

If time allows, it is worth the trip to the North Rim. Views are sensational! It is not crowded and allows you a chance to really take it all in away from the tour buses and hundreds of day visitors to the South Rim.

If you want to enjoy the Grand Canyon without the crowds, the North Rim is the way to do it. For the six million annual visitors to the South Rim, you get merely fifty thousand to the North Rim. In addition, the North Rim is...More

This was my first trip to the GCNP. It was a solo trip for my 50th birthday. I chose the North Rim for more seclusion and to be more in touch with nature as I understand the South Rim is more populated. I stayed in...More

The North Rim holds its own. It is a more private and intimate location with a slower pace and much less commercialized than the South Rim. The atmosphere here helps you to relax and enjoy what the canyon has to offer. Here you can appreciate...More

Not the trails around the lodge. But I would wear hiking shoes for trips greater than one hour.
