The Grand Canyon ranks atop the seven natural wonders of the world, and among the world’s most popular tourist destinations. The Canyon’s unparalleled vastness (over one-mile-deep and up to eighteen miles wide) is breathtaking to first time and returning visitors. Indescribable contours and angulation can be seen from any point of the ridge-line, and guiding services also offer a variety of ways to experience the canyon.
If you are looking for a once in a lifetime experience, travel throughout the canyon by foot, mule/horse, ATV, or soar through the overwhelming canyon walls by helicopter. If extreme adventure is your boat, challenge the Colorado River’s miles of whitewater rapids. Camping is available on the South and North rims, and the canyon floor (requiring reservations and permits).
The North Rim of the Grand Canyon offers a unique Grand Canyon experience located within a beautiful morning’s drive from Sand Hollow. The elevation tops 8,000 ft. (2438 m.) and is recognized for hiking, camping and mule rides, the North Rim is a perfect place to reflect on the canyon’s grandeur.
