Cut a mile deep by the unrelenting flow of the Colorado River and up to 18 miles wide by mother nature’s other elements, nothing highlights the power of nature quite like the Grand Canyon. Experience a never-ending sense of awe in the hands of this geological marvel on a Grand Canyon National Park holiday.

Grand Canyon National Park holidays are about experiencing true beauty; they’re about waking up early and watching as the sun rises and mist clears, revealing an otherworldly landscape that seems to stretch out forever. Take to the Canyon Rim Trail or do the West Rim Drive. On both, you’ll find lookouts that give way to breathtaking vistas. Stop off to watch the sun rise or set against the wide vistas of Hopi Point, see the rock drop vertically beneath you at The Abyss, and gaze down at the Colorado River far below at Pima Point.

Grand Canyon National Park: A Place or History and Adventure

Grand Canyon Village is the epicentre of the park and a place steeped in history. Wander the Historic District, where the village began around 120 years ago, and see the Grand Canyon Railway depot. Following in the footsteps of Native American groups that have used the route for thousands of years, hike along the Bright Angel Trail, taking in the views as you get deeper and deeper into the heart of the canyon. As you go, see the long history of earth reflected in the different layers of the rock.

Why not contrast a Grand Canyon National Park holiday with a visit to the extravagant casinos and hotels of nearby Las Vegas? Or head a little further west to Los Angeles and spend some time luxuriating on Los Angeles’ beautiful beaches.

Destination Highlights

  • Wander around Grand Canyon Village, the historic centre of the park
  • Witness the 100-feet tall standing rock formations of Chiricahua National Monument, formed 27 million years ago by a volcanic eruption
  • Step out onto the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass bridge extending off the side of a canyon, with views to 4,000 feet below
  • Experience an authentic journey into the park on the Grand Canyon Railway

"The North Rim, which tends to be quieter, is only open mid-May to mid-October, while the South Rim is open year round. If you are looking at exploring the North Rim, make sure to check when its opens so you aren’t disappointed."

"If you don't want to drive into the Grand Canyon, take a helicopter trip from Las Vegas. The views from above are incredible and you can even stay overnight at the Hualapai Ranch, which I would highly recommend."
