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.

The view took us the breath away. We also slept close by the rim. The walk on the rim is something you can’t miss.

Its amazing! just when you come closer to the canyon and see all the greatness of it. An astonishing view from the top, miles and miles of canyon, the mix colours and the river below. That's when we feel SO SMALL :-)
