Explore Grand Canyon

Don't Go Home Without

Don’t leave without embarking on one of the many breathtaking tours! We're a great launching point for rafting trips, scenic jeep rides, helicopter and airplane tours of the Grand Canyon's southern rim. Also be sure to experience Stargazing in the night skies. Moran, Lipan, and Mather Points are some of the best spots to see the stars 1.5 hours after Sunset or before Sunrise for optimal viewing.

Must See

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon has amazing viewpoints, free seasonal buses provided by the park, hiking trails for people of all abilities, and guided tours. Sunrise and sunset are amazing photo opportunities and the IMAX Theater just down the street from the hotel has a three story screen – the movie gives you an eagle’s eye view of the canyon as you soar above and below the rim.

Must Do

Call the front desk for more information on area activities including hiking above & below the rim, bicycle tours, mule rides along the rim, the Desert Watchtower, Kolb Studio, & museums in the park. An air tour in a helicopter or airplane is once-in-a-lifetime experience. Jeep tours & horseback tours take you through the Kaibab Forest.

Local Tips

It's easy to get around Grand Canyon National Park with the park's free shuttle bus system. The Village Route is available throughout the entire year and the Tusayan Route with pick up across the street from the hotel is available from mid-May to mid-Sept. For cyclists, every bus has a bike rack.
