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 drove from southern Utah down to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park last week, just in time before the north rim park facilities close for the winter season. The North Rim is over 8,000 feet, set in a lovely Ponderosa pine and...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 Grand Canyon. My friends and I were not able to get a room at the lodge so we stayed in Kanab, Utah. That was an about an hours drive from the hotel in Kanab. A scenic drive and...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

Hi, There are a few nice places on the way to the North Rim, Kanab being one but if you have a road atlas there are other little spots on the way that have nice or quaint motels, etc. You might look at the atlas and then... More
Hi, There are a few nice places on the way to the North Rim, Kanab being one but if you have a road atlas there are other little spots on the way that have nice or quaint motels, etc. You might look at the atlas and then pull up the smaller towns and see what they offer.
