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.

Awesome view.....

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.

A perfect spot for campers and hikers and far less crowded and commercialized than on the South Rim.

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

This park is closed till May 15th. One lane entry at the gate gets backed up. Different and spectacular views. We had lunch at the Lodge with windows that look out over the canyon.

We went on May 18, just after the season opened. An unexpected winter storm had just gone through, dusting everything with a light snow. The road was clear but the trees and meadows were all white. When we left, the snow had begun to melt already. The grand canyon is beyond words beautiful. This was my first visit to the... More

There are no words to describe this experience! It was so beautiful. We went to the North Rim and took the orange line bus and also the blue line bus to different lookout points. The bus is free after the park entrance fee. The only thing is that the food is very expensive because it's quite a drive to the... More

After hiking down the South Rim last year we choose to hike the North Rim this year, based on the recommendation of our Guide Service, Four Season Guides. This was a 5 day hike that is not for the faint of heart. If you are in very good shape, not afraid of heights and want to see parts of the... More
