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.

We were fortunate to see the North Rim during and after a May snow storm Amazing to see the clouds rise up from the Canyon. Color of rocks change from dawn to dusk. Certainly dress in layers and respect the high elevation. Great from pictures.

We finally made it, 2 days after the road that was always closed on previous trips was opened! It was worth the wait and the journey.

Great food with great service. Decor is comfortable. Friendly staff are very helpful. The perfect place to stop for a bite to eat after or before touring the North Rim.

The north rim is apparently far less crowded than the south rim. The views are stunning both morning and night.

Each site has its own beauty. South rim is much more busier and is the classic Grand Canyon visit. I would do that first and then do the North Rim at a later day.Just be ready for the crowds on the south rim. Enjoy.

Yes. The Lodge opens on the 15th. You may not be able to get rooms but yo will have access to the views of the north rim and the surrounding area,.Check with the Park site to see what current conditions are before you go.
