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.

Stay for the sunset - it is striking from the viewpoint. Even on Memorial Day it wasn't too busy. If you spend the night, go out at night and see the starry sky. We saw a shooting star and you could see it burning through the atmosphere. Amazing!!

We climbed to the top of the watch tower and while it is a splendid view, it's really hard to see the full view of the canyon. We visited the south rim years ago and liked it much better. I'd recommend a plane tour or donkey ride. Neither are available at this spot. Don't get me wrong, the Grand Canyon... More

As the days of our trips went on, we built up to the Grand Canyon. Each down I was in more awe than the day before. Words could not even describe how beautiful the North Rim of the Grand Canyon was. I loved it and can't wait to go back. We went the day after it opened for the season.... More

Everything in the Grand Canyon is outstanding. If you have the time, the North Rim offers outstanding views. Please plan to visit the place if you have time

We visited the north rim of the Grand Canyon in May of 2016. I had visited the more accessible south rim on a number of previous occasions but always wanted to see what the Grand Canyon looked like from the north rim. If you come up from the south, it is quite a drive to get to the north rim.... More

Everything about visiting the Grand Canyon is outstanding except for the crowds. If you have the time, the North Rim offers outstanding views and hiking with much, much smaller crowds than the South Rim. Even on the main rim trails you can pretty easily get away from other people. That said, the North Rim facilities are not designed to handle... More

This rare treasure requires some planning but it is so worth it. The North Rim is far less visited than the South Rim but it's also even more breathtaking, and that's saying something.

Hardly hidden, but many travellers opt for the South Rim, which is a lot more 'touristic'. We went by rented car to the North Rim via an almost empty road through the woods. At the end of this road you see a large log cabin, The Lodge, and a bit of 'canyon' at the back behind the trees. When you... More
