Canyon
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.

  • First of all if you start your tour of the American West by this park, take a pass at $ 80 it will allow you to access all the National Park without paying each time. Attention all parks are not national. That mean on grand canyon that has not been said. This is amazing amazing see take full eyes. Watch also around you there is a very rich flora and fauna the kids will love the squirrels but be careful not to touch them they can scratch. Take advantage of this magic moment if possible choose the sunrise or late afternoon to attend the fantastic sunset with its colors visit begins around 16:30 until 19: 00 or 20: 00 according to season it's perfect
