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.

Fantastic view of a great natural wonder.
Brian was a great pilot, smooth flight even with wind in the area. What a view, well worth the cost to see what we saw on the flight.

Spectacular views of Canyon with accompanying music and commentary. Very safety conscious. Only spoilt by high winds which meant the trip was limited to 20 mins

Grand Canyon Helicopter 40-Minute Flights with Optional Hummer Tour
Our Grand Canyon helicopter tour was absolutely amazing! Our pilot was extremely knowledgeable and made us feel at ease on the flight. We were able to view all parts of the canyon. Being able to view the North rim was exciting because it is very difficult from the ground. We will do this again!

Grand Canyon Helicopter 40-Minute Flights with Optional Hummer Tour
Absolutely incredible!! Nothing can top this experience. The service was great from start to finish. Our pilot was amazing. Not only was she a super pilot, but a lot of fun. They take a photo of your group before taking off, but there was no high pressure sales pitch to buy. We had to ask about it actually. We did not do the optional Hummer tour, because we were renting an ATV the next day. This was well worth it. It’ll be something we’ll be talking about for years to come.

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.
