Grand Canyon South Rim Tours
The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is a wonderful place to visit, 12 months of the year. The Kaibab Plateau is covered in wildflowers in the spring, then with golden aspen in the fall. During the winter, the lack of vegetation highlights the rock formations, and the smaller crowds give more opportunities to linger at your leisure in the park. Summertime is more crowded, although all of the park amenities and programs should be open for tours of the Grand Canyon.
Since the park is also open 24 hours a day, South Rim tours provide some breathtaking scenery and experiences at the beginning and end of the day. See the dawn break over the East Rim from Mather or Yaki Point. From Hopi, Yaki, or Mather Points, you can watch the sunset over the Canyon. The park also offers stargazing programs at night. During the days, you can enjoy rim walks, photo ops, ranger talks, the Visitor Center, and dining.
