The Basics

While the canyon itself is an obvious draw, there’s much more to Grand Canyon National Park than its stunning geology. The area is a hiker’s paradise, a haven for desert flora and fauna, and a rich historical site—ancient ruins, lava fields, volcanic remnants, and sweeping views are just a few of the park’s many highlights. The Grand Canyon’s South Rim and West Rim tend to be the most popular areas to visit.

Adventurous travelers can take a day hike on the famous Bright Angel Trail; head out on a white-water rafting trip; hop into the saddle of a sure-footed mule; or soar high above the canyon on a helicopter tour from Phoenix or Las Vegas. Bus tours from Flagstaff and Sedona also allow visitors to see a wide range of sites, including ancient Wupatki ruins, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, and the historic Cameron Trading Post. For a scenic treat, head to the Grand Canyon on a evening tour to photograph the park’s spectacular sunset and perhaps enjoy dinner at Bright Angel Lodge.

What a great excursion! Koji was an amazing guide, very kind and knowledgeable. We had considered a longer excursion but were glad we went with the two day. It was nice to be able to see several historical and scenic locations without having to drive or plan. Lots of beautiful pictures and memories.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Remember to bring sun protection, hiking shoes, and plenty of water.

  • Bring warm layers—the elevation of Grand Canyon Village is 6,800 feet (2,074 meters), so cool temperatures are common in the evenings.

  • The canyon’s four rims are quite far from one another, meaning that travelers should choose the area best suited for them for their visit.

  • To save time, take advantage of the shuttle bus that runs between the park’s many lookouts.

  • All park shuttles are wheelchair accessible, but visitors using wheelchairs may need assistance on the rocky terrain.
