Experience The Wonder of The Mighty Grand Canyon


We’ll set off together from Kanab and enjoy a scenic drive to the Grand Canyon North Rim. Because of its remote nature, the secluded North Rim attracts far fewer visitors than the South Rim, and we like it!
Avoid the crowds and come up to an elevation where you can really clear your head. You can expect to enjoy a day full of simple hiking, jaw-dropping views and plenty of insider knowledge and local history from your friendly guide.

The highlight for many is experiencing first hand the sheer size and presence of the canyon, it’s crevice is a mile deep and over 275 miles long! For many of our guests, it’s a powerful experience that stays with them, one that seems to make their busy world stand still as they watch the sun dive deep into the canyon, almost touching the Colorado River. The air is crisp and refreshing throughout the North Rim, surrounded by a lush forest environment and excellent trails and hiking options with countless amazing views, you’ll easily see why it’s regarded as one of the 7 Wonders of the World.

Together with your guide, you’ll have the chance to explore the North Rim on foot, or for an additional cost of $50, on the back of a sure-footed mule!
We’ll take you to lunch at the renowned Grand Canyon North Rim Lodge where you’ll also have time to visit the charming gift shop for some great souvenir shopping if desired.
This tour ensures you see the big viewpoints at the North Rim as well as the smaller ones, that aren’t accessible to the larger tour groups but still deliver a huge wow-factor!
