Our Grand Canyon Holidays

How big is the Grand Canyon?

Dominating the Arizona landscape in the USA, the Grand Canyon is an immense natural wonder that never fails to astound visitors with its size. It stretches for over 270 miles in length and reaches depths of up to 6,000 feet, paying testament to the remarkable forces of erosion that have shaped the landscape over millions of years. With an average width of 10 miles, the Canyon is made up of colourful rock layers and steep cliffs, making it one of the most iconic and impressive canyons in the world.

When is the best time for Grand Canyon tours?

The best time to visit the Grand Canyon will depend on personal preferences and any activities you want to do while you’re there. However, many people prefer to visit in the spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) as these are considered the best times to explore the canyon. This natural wonder draws millions of visitors each year so if you prefer to miss the crowds then it’s best to avoid the summer months. In spring and autumn, the weather is moderate, the crowds are relatively smaller and the landscape is alive with colour and wildlife.

FAQs on Grand Canyon Tours

Are there different parts of the Grand Canyon to visit?

Yes, the Grand Canyon is divided into two main areas: the South Rim and the North Rim. One of the most popular parts to visit is the South Rim as it has 360-degree panoramic views, visitor facilities and hiking trails such as the Bright Angel Trail and the South Kaibab Trail. The North Rim is less crowded and higher in elevation, providing a cooler and more tranquil experience with its lush forests and diverse wildlife. For the more adventurous of you, the West Rim is home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass bridge with a thrilling vantage point.

What activities can I do at the Grand Canyon?

One of the most popular activities at the Grand Canyon is hiking. With numerous trails of varying difficulty levels, you can explore the depths of the canyon, the rim or both. Trails such as the Bright Angel Trail and South Kaibab Trail offer spectacular views and the chance to witness the canyon’s geological formations up close. If you’re looking for a different perspective, take a helicopter tour and enjoy a bird’s eye view. Culture lovers can explore the Grand Canyon Village and visit the historic buildings, museums and art galleries which will give you an insight into the history and geology of the canyon.

Is it safe to hike in the Grand Canyon?

Hiking in the Grand Canyon is an exhilarating and rewarding experience and your safety is always our top priority. With its rugged terrain, extreme temperatures and remote location, we go to great lengths to prepare for our Grand Canyon tours. It is essential to stay hydrated, protect yourself from the sun and be aware of weather conditions. Proper footwear is also crucial for a safe hike. Knowing your limits and being mindful of the signs of fatigue or heat exhaustion is important to prevent any accidents.

What else is there to do on Grand Canyon trips?

Beyond the iconic viewpoints, there are many more things to do when visiting this natural wonder. Explore lesser-known areas such as Havasu Falls and the North Rim for a unique perspective of the enormity of the canyon or hike to Plateau Point or Skeleton Point for unparalleled panoramas. If you’re interested in history, discover ancient ruins and rock art sites that are scattered throughout the canyon. For the ultimate thrill and an alternative perspective, go river rafting along the Colorado River.
