Discover South Rim09 January 2024
Looking for a summer vacation that's great for the whole family? A destination that is exciting, unique, breathtaking and mostly unforgettable?
Then look no further than the Grand Canyon! It's been the top summer family destination for a decade! The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is huge, with an abundance of things to cover. Let's start now.
At the south rim of the Grand Canyon is the National Park, which was established in 1919. Each year, the Grand Canyon National Park receives approximately 5 million visitors from around the world. The canyon is considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world. And there's a good reason for that! The Grand Canyon is colossal, majestic, spiritual, breathtaking and there is nothing in the world quite like it. With a length of 277 miles, an average depth of 1 mile and an average width of 10 miles, it is almost impossible to see the entire grandeur of the canyon.
The Grand Canyon National Park is well maintained and has many modern conveniences and activities, such as accommodations, camping, hiking, museums and various shops. There are plenty of free parking spaces available in the National Park. As well as good hiking trails that lead visitors to the viewpoints. There is even a free bus shuttle available between the various viewpoints, hotels, parking lots and the small town of Tusayan. The South Rim is the most popular part of the Grand Canyon, and the busiest times of the year are the summer months of July and August and the period between Christmas and New Years. The most busy areas of the National Park are along the edge/rim where the El Tovar Hotel and the Bright Angel Lodge are located. However, if you go at the right time of year (early fall/spring or during the winter months) and don't mind getting a little off the beaten track, you can explore areas of the park (and viewpoints along the rim) that are very quiet. The many viewpoints are, of course, the highlights of South Rim, but there are many other activities to do, such as plane and helicopter flights, jeep rides and horseback riding tours. Visitors can also hike along the canyon through the various trails, or even go on a guided horseback ride down into the canyon. If you're short on time, you should visit one of the most popular spots, Hermit's Rest. This is located at the western tip of the National Park. Here the canyon is narrow and deep, and the views of the Colorado River and sunrises and sunsets are simply breathtaking. There is also a gift shop in Hermit's Rest, which was designed by Mary Colter, who also designed many of the other buildings in the park.

If you are only visiting the National Park, we have the following scenic flights tours available that will give you a bird's eye view of this majestic area. They are: 'South Rim Airplane Tour' which flies over a large area of the eastern and central rims. It offers beautiful views of the Zuni Corridor, Imperial Point, Confluence of Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers, Kaibab National Forest, and Kaibab Plateau. There are also two helicopter tours available. The first is the 'North Canyon Tour' which is offered via the Kaibab National Forest and the Colorado River to the north rim of the Grand Canyon. You will see the Tower of Ra and Vishnu Schist as you fly back through the Dragon Corridor before arriving back at the airport. The second tour is called the "Imperial Tour." This helicopter tour takes you to the eastern rim of the canyon, then to the North Rim and back through the canyon's central region. You will first fly over the Kaibab National Forest and as the canyon opens up below you, you will see the Little Colorado Confluence where the blue waters of this tributary merge with the dark green of the Colorado River. It flies through Point Imperial, over the North Rim, and then back through the canyon's central region, where the canyon becomes a full 11 miles wide and 1 mile deep. On both of these helicopter flights you have the option to upgrade to the deluxe EC130 helicopters. No matter which helicopter you choose, the canyon is guaranteed to take your breath away in disbelief.
