#2 of 6 in Nature in Grand Canyon National Park
Canyon Nature / Park
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.

  • When I planned my trip to the Las Vegas area, I was curious about the roads from Las Vegas to the North Rim. I am very afraid of heights, but I didn't want that to stop me, so I want to write this rev...  more »
  • The Grand Canyon has to be experienced at least once in a lifetime! It is so great that people will not be able to understand it, before they even have stood there and looked out over the Canyon. It's so impressive and unique! Take off!

  • The North Rim is more quiet and natural than the South Rim. However, the beauty of the stunning Grand Canyon can be seen from here.

Where to stay in Grand Canyon National Park

You'll find plenty of options if you want to stay inside Grand Canyon National Park. Most campgrounds and lodges sit around the South Rim area, and they tend to fill up quickly for summer visits, so book as far in advance as possible. The price range for lodge accommodations varies greatly, so there's something for nearly every budget. The less-visited North Rim features one lodge. For those who hike to the bottom of the canyon, dormitories and cabins are available at Phantom Ranch. If you can't secure a place in the park or find something there to your liking, the small village near the south entrance offers inns and economy motels. You’ll have the convenience of nearby restaurants if you stay there.
