Journey to the United States and behold one of the most wondrous sights in the world on holidays to Grand Canyon. No visitor can fail to be impressed with this natural treasure in Arizona.
The Grand Canyon is a regular at the top of many a traveller’s to-do list – book your trip and find out why...
Prepare to be amazed on Grand Canyon holidays – this spectacular mile-deep natural phenomenon will take your breath away. Make the most of it on one of the adrenaline-pumping activities around the canyon, such as hiking, helicopter rides, white water rafting or tackling the hair-raising glass bridge that juts out over the edge.
The Colorado River has been snaking through the state of Arizona in the west of the United States of America and carving out the Grand Canyon for millions of years. Visitors can discover all the astonishing facts and figures during holidays in Grand Canyon. For starters, though, you should know that the amazing natural wonder is 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide and one-mile deep – some pretty impressive vital statistics!
The best ways for British tourists to access the Grand Canyon National Park is to fly into the international airports of Phoenix (PHX), Los Angeles (LAX) or Las Vegas (LAS). Hire a car, get yourself to either edge of the canyon, and prepare to be amazed. Holidays in Grand Canyon are perfectly paired with all-American road trips on West Coast USA holidays.
The two sides of the canyon are known as the North Rim and the South Rim. The North Rim is at a higher elevation than the south and frequented by fewer visitors as it is less accessible.
On the North Rim you'll find Kaibab Plateau, Imperial Point – the highest viewpoint – and Bright Angel Point Trail, not to be confused with the Bright Angel Trail, which starts from the South Rim.
Jacob Lake is known as the Gateway to the Grand Canyon, as the only good road leading to the North Rim starts here.
On the South Rim is the main tourist hub of the Grand Canyon Village, plus the Grand Canyon Visitor Center, where visitors can see the canyon on the big screens of the IMAX theatre before witnessing the real thing.
Desert View Drive is one of the scenic driving routes of the South Rim. Even if you don't fancy hiking or taking a mule down into the canyon, you should attempt to see as much as the Grand Canyon as you can during your visit.
Other spectacular ways to view the canyon include taking to the skies on a helicopter trip or to the water on a river trip.
One unique take on a Grand Canyon view is the technically impressive Skywalk – a horseshoe shaped glass bridge where brave visitors can see the depths of the canyon under their feet. The Skywalk is in the west and easily accessed on a day trip from Las Vegas.
The Grand Canyon really is a stunning piece of natural architecture. You have to see it to believe it – and even then you might struggle to take it all in.
