Grand Canyon North Rim, Grand Canyon National Park
(4.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web)
Part of one of the world's Seven Natural Wonders, Grand Canyon North Rim provides an inspiring and remarkable landscape without the massive crowds of the South Rim. Begin your trip at the visitor center, where you can pick up maps and brochures, talk to a ranger, and view exhibits about the canyon. One of the best ways to experience all that the North Rim has to offer is a hike through its wild and breathtaking scenery. If you'd rather not get that much exercise, cruise the scenic drive. Temperatures here are generally lower than the South Rim due to its greater elevation, so bring a sweater. North Rim guided mule treks are easier to book than South Rim mule trips, which generally must be booked 13 months in advance. Put Grand Canyon North Rim on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Grand Canyon National Park trip builder.

  • Remember that there are millions of history in each of its layers (Google mija @), that if dear traveller carries a coat, comfortable shoes, sunglasses and lots of energy. I recommend that you stay a day at least so that you can download and upload without troubles. If you like sport and nature tourism, you going to pass very well. #grancañon this #cañón.
