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 North Rim has the fabulous views, vistas, hiking trails, mule rides etc., But without the overcrowding of the South Rim. We stayed in one of the Western cabins and ate several meals at the lodge. Very happy with it all!

Although it's less accessible and more challenging to get to than the South Rim, you are rewarded with a much more intimate experience, substantially less crowds, and more serene peacefulness. In a forested unique habitat, the North Rim has side transepts that allow up close...More

We had a rim view cabin, and they weren't kidding. If I would have fallen over the porch railing I would have been on the trail into the canyon. It was beautiful and very peaceful. We sat in the rocking chairs on our private porch...More

Was on my bucket list and now that I have done it I want to go back. The views on tv or pics don't do this justice. It has to be experienced in person to experience the magnitude of the canyon. Do yourself a favor...More

We visited the North Rim as part of a tour of seven national parks/monuments, and I’m so glad we didn’t miss it! The views are absolutely incredible! Because the north rim has such high elevation, it’s much cooler than many of the southwest parks (it...More

The Grand Canyon North Rim was spectacular. We loved the views - they were amazing. We took a few of the trails and went to the highest elevation view - WOW! Just WOW!
