Grand Canyon North Rim Tours

Grand Canyon North Rim
No trip to Las Vegas is complete without visiting the Grand Canyon. Thousands of feet higher than the South Rim, the canyon’s North Rim provides impressive vistas, trails along the Colorado River, and a better glimpse at the inner canyon, all with sparser crowds than its more popular counterpart. Highlights on the North Rim include Bright Angel Point (a terminus of the famous Bright Angel Trail), Angel’s Window Overlook, Cape Royal, and Point Imperial—the Grand Canyon’s highest point at 8,800 feet (2,682 meters).

The Basics
While not as popular as the South Rim, the North Rim offers plenty of opportunities for outdoor adventure. Visitors based in Las Vegas can get a bird’s-eye view of the North Rim aboard a helicopter or airplane flightseeing tour, with the option to add an ATV ride or Jeep tour for close-up views from the ground. Since the Hoover Dam is along the route from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon North Rim, many visitors and tours stop there first.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The North Rim is a must-see for nature lovers and outdoors enthusiasts.
  • See the rim on an aerial tour or from the ground in a Jeep or ATV.
  • Due to the distances involved, tours from Las Vegas can last up to 10 hours.
  • There isn’t much shade at the Grand Canyon, so remember to bring sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat.

How to Get There
The Grand Canyon North Rim runs into both Arizona and Nevada, and is part of Grand Canyon National Park. The North Rim is about 275 miles (442 kilometers) east of Las Vegas and about 207 miles (332 kilometers) from Flagstaff in Arizona. If you’re not visiting on a tour, you can get there by car by taking Highway 89A to Highway 67/North Rim Parkway. A Trans Canyon shuttle runs between the South Rim and the North Rim when the North Rim is open between May and October.

When to Get There
The best times to visit the Grand Canyon are in early autumn and late spring, when temperatures are cool and the crowds are sparser than in summer. Visitor facilities at the North Rim are open from mid-May to mid-October, and it’s possible to visit the area until the first snowfall closes the road from Jacob Lake until it melts again in spring.

North Rim Day Hiking
The Grand Canyon North Rim offers some spectacular trails for day hikers, including rim hikes with stellar views of the inner canyon or even hikes down into the canyon itself. The Bright Angel Point Trail can be hiked in as little as 30 minutes along a paved path, with excellent views the entire way. The three-mile (4.8-kilometer) round-trip Transept Trail follows the rim from Grand Canyon Lodge to the North Rim Campground, while the more challenging North Kaibab Trail to Roaring Springs inside the canyon takes a full day to complete.

Private Grand Canyon Off-Roading Parks Adventure

Private Grand Canyon Off-Roading Parks Adventure

Few people see the mighty Grand Canyon National Park from the remote North Rim. Here a wide web of jeep tracks lead to remote and almost inaccessible wilderness, and the best view points on the entire Grand Canyon. Our local guides take you to the Grand Canyon rarely seen by tourists. You get to see the inaccessible Toroweap overlook, reachable only by sturdy 4x4. Then we jeep onto the North Rim, the remote rim of the Grand Canyon. We camp and hike along the Rainbow Rim Trail with stunning views into the abyss of the canyon below. On the return to Las Vegas, we have a chance to walk the world’s longest and deepest Narrows, The Buckskin Gulch, hidden in the Paria Wilderness. Most of the sights of this itinerary are reachable only on 4x4 tracks through the desert and forest. We will spend 3 nights camping in the wilds without any infrastructure. There will be no electricity, running water, and limited cell reception on this trip. We will bring an emergency signaling device.
