Around-the-Rim Tours

From an around-the-rim bike tour to geology explorations on foot to rugged Jeep excursions, there are multiple ways to discover the North and South Rims of the Grand Canyon. For a real treat, plan your tour for sunset or sunrise and see the canyon at its most beautiful.

Biking Tours

Touring the canyon on two wheels is an exhilarating and healthy way to take in the sights. Here are just a couple of our favorite biking tours:

Hermit Road: This eight-mile trail starts just west of Bright Angel Lodge on the South Rim. Most of the trail runs within a few yards of the Canyon, offering cyclists a series of impressive panoramic views.

Greenway Trails: These mult-iuse trails on the South Rim form part of the Grand Canyon Greenway, an in-progress network that will eventually link 73 miles of trails along the North and South rims. Learn more about the Greenway Trails.

Mule Rides

Mule train rides from Grand Canyon Village down the Bright Angel Trail are a Grand Canyon tradition – but there are actually several options for your mule trip:

•    South Rim One-Day Trip: Take a seven-hour round-trip journey on the Bright Angel Trail to Plateau Point, 1,000 feet above the Colorado River, for a superb outlook over the Inner Gorge.
•    South Rim Overnight Trip: Descend the whole length of Bright Angel Trail and spend the night at Phantom Ranch.
•    North Rim One-Hour and Half-Day Trips: Ride along the North Rim either to Uncle Jim Point or down the North Kaibab Trail as far as the Supai Tunnel.
•    Havasu Falls Trip: Skip the three-hour hike and take a mule ride to these spectacular falls instead.

Jeep Tours

Hop in and hold on! A professional driver will take you on a safe, thrilling ride throughout Grand Canyon National Park. Whisking you around to different viewpoints and scenic overlooks, an open-top Jeep tour will blow your hair back – and enrich your family's Grand Canyon experience. You'll venture down back roads and rocky trails as you discover just how exciting nature can be.

Geology, Landscape and Nature Eco-Tours

 

Enlist a tour guide to lead you around the park and discuss the natural components of the Grand Canyon. From learning about the formation of the canyon to its earliest inhabitants, there is much to learn about the history and make-up of this natural wonder. Be sure to bring your camera, as you will no doubt discover native wildlife and foliage worth remembering.
