ARIZONA

The Grand Canyon is a walk back in time. Eons of erosion have uncovered layers and layers of rock which tell a story. The canyon is a magical place full of human, ecological, and geological history. We love the Grand Canyon for breathtaking views, amazing terrain, and endless adventure.

ACTIVITIES

Stand on glass: the Hualupai Skywalk at Eagle Point is truly a modern marvel. Built with a clear floor, the Skywalk arches over the canyon to reveal the bottom 4,000 feet below. It’s a short drive outside the park to Eagle Point where you’ll also find a gift shop and a native village tour.

All aboard: experience a bit of the American West by riding into the park on a locomotive. The Grand Canyon Railway ride takes 2 hours and weaves through the beautiful high desert of Arizona. It begins southwest of the park at Williams Depot and stops at the heart of the park: Grand Canyon Village.

Soak up the sun: if you want a Grand Canyon experience unlike most visitors will experience, you may just want to catch the sunrise. While you will have to wake up pretty early, you’ll be rewarded with a quiet golden hour for incredible photography and vistas you won’t forget. We recommend enjoying the sunrise from the South Rim.

CONSIDERATIONS

  • Always pack more water than you think you’ll need
  • Protect your skin from the sun with sunscreen and by covering up
  • Practice bear safety in campgrounds and picnic areas
  • Reserve sites in advance: Grand Canyon is very popular and campgrounds fill up early
