The Basics

While the canyon itself is an obvious draw, there’s much more to Grand Canyon National Park than its stunning geology. The area is a hiker’s paradise, a haven for desert flora and fauna, and a rich historical site—ancient ruins, lava fields, volcanic remnants, and sweeping views are just a few of the park’s many highlights. The Grand Canyon’s South Rim and West Rim tend to be the most popular areas to visit.

Adventurous travelers can take a day hike on the famous Bright Angel Trail; head out on a white-water rafting trip; hop into the saddle of a sure-footed mule; or soar high above the canyon on a helicopter tour from Phoenix or Las Vegas. Bus tours from Flagstaff and Sedona also allow visitors to see a wide range of sites, including ancient Wupatki ruins, Sunset Crater Volcano National Monument, and the historic Cameron Trading Post. For a scenic treat, head to the Grand Canyon on a evening tour to photograph the park’s spectacular sunset and perhaps enjoy dinner at Bright Angel Lodge.

Grand Canyon get-away
We had a fun travel full day starting out at the Hoover Dam then onto Route 66, followed by a beautiful walk along the rim trail of the Grand Canyon. Adam, the Coexist guide, helped ease the long travel by providing many stops, lunch and a warm drink after the cold walk thru the Canyon. We would definitely use the company Coexist again for future tours.

Grand Canyon and Sedona Day Adventure from Scottsdale or Phoenix
Cory was very knowledgeable and kept the day rolling smoothly. We enjoyed the Grand Canyon and Sedona. There was plenty of time to explore and take pictures. We really appreciated the fact that we didn’t have to drive this long day to the two different spots. Would definitely recommend this day trip to others.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Remember to bring sun protection, hiking shoes, and plenty of water.

  • Bring warm layers—the elevation of Grand Canyon Village is 6,800 feet (2,074 meters), so cool temperatures are common in the evenings.

  • The canyon’s four rims are quite far from one another, meaning that travelers should choose the area best suited for them for their visit.

  • To save time, take advantage of the shuttle bus that runs between the park’s many lookouts.

  • All park shuttles are wheelchair accessible, but visitors using wheelchairs may need assistance on the rocky terrain.
