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.

Sedona and Grand Canyon Single Day Tour
Great day! Nike was very knowledgeable about all things Arizona. Most Sedona area parks still closed due to Covid. Grand Canyon surprisingly not crowded on the holiday weekend. Spectacular views. Great tour.

Day Tour Grand Canyon, Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend
Our tour guide (Tom) was fantastic. Even though we were a group of 3, he still took us to all of the places listed and more. Due to Covid, we were unable to go to Antelope Canyon and the East Rim of Grand Canyon. Tom has amazing photography skills and took great photos of us. I would highly recommend him.

Sedona and Grand Canyon Single Day Tour
I was struck by the fact that water, over many, many years, had gouged such a deep path, in the earth, eventually leading to the ocean. Wow.

Grand Canyon National Park South Rim Tour from Las Vegas
This was our first time visiting the Grand Canyon and the trip was wonderful. We originally booked the South Rim tour, but because of low passenger count, we were provided options for other tours or to be booked with a sister company. That was great customer service, in my opinion. We chose the West Rim tour. Our driver, Michael, was wonderful. He was pleasant, courteous, patient & gave great information. I would definitely recommend.

Grand Canyon and Sedona Day Adventure from Scottsdale or Phoenix
Definitely a great trip. Cody, the owner of Wandering Heart Adventures, the actual tour trip company that Viator set us up with, was the best! So knowledgeable and friendly. I will definitely book with Wandering Heart Adventures when I get back to Arizona again!

Seeing the Grand Canyon for the 1st time was breathtaking. It’s absolutely beautiful. Sedona was also beautiful. We can’t wait to go again!!

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.
