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.

Although it is magnificent, it's not for those with fear of heights! I was stressed out the entire time, but was able to really enjoy the view from the lodge.

We spent three nights at the North Rim; the facilities are nowhere near as extensive as the South Rim, but the views are equally spectacular - and quite different. Most of the trails are pretty gentle and offer excellent views.

The canyon surrounds the area of the Lodge, Frontier Cabins and Western Cabins.The motel is a little further from those. In order to get reservations the fastest way is to bombard the web site. It takes a long, long time to get through by phone....More

How on earth can a visit to the Grand Canyon match the anticipation built by hearing about it and seeing pictures and films of it for years. Well, it just does. We had the most amazing day walking trails, driving to view points, eating in...More

Thanks to Pappilion Helicopters for a very early morning flight over both the North and South Rims of the Canyon. It was great to get up and close, would have preferred if we could have drooped down a bit below the rim but I guess...More

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
