Create an itinerary including North Rim Visitor Center
Part of one of the world's Seven Natural Wonders, North Rim Visitor Center provides an inspiring and remarkable landscape without the massive crowds of the South Rim. Begin your trip at the visitor center, where you can pick up maps and brochures, talk to a ranger, and view exhibits about the canyon. One of the best ways to experience all that the North Rim has to offer is a hike through its wild and breathtaking scenery. If you'd rather not get that much exercise, cruise the scenic drive. Temperatures here are generally lower than the South Rim due to its greater elevation, so bring a sweater. North Rim guided mule treks are easier to book than South Rim mule trips, which generally must be booked 13 months in advance.

  • Super nice would love to have been able to stay there. Did not like the fact that they had the doors Locked on one side of the balcony we had to walk back to the other side (Not cool). They blamed it on Corona but for the life of me I cant see any benefit. Still pretty cool from what we saw of it.
  • This is the place to go. Don't waste your time at the south run if you are wanting to do some hiking and exploring. Lots of great trails and views that almost anyone can enjoy, novice to experienced
