Grand Canyon South Rim

Visitors to the canyon converge mostly on the South Rim, and mostly in summer. Grand Canyon Village is here, with a majority of the park’s lodging and camping, trailheads, restaurants, stores, and museums, along with a nearby airport and railroad depot. Believe it or not, the average stay in the park is a mere half day or so; this is not advised! You need to spend several days to truly appreciate this marvelous place, but at the very least, give it a full day. Hike down into the canyon, or along the rim, to get away from the crowds and experience nature at its finest.

South Rim

WHEN TO VISIT

Hours

The South Rim is open year-round, 24 hours a day. Of course, there’s not much of the Grand Canyon to see in the dark hours, but you don’t want to miss the opportunity to stand on Mather or Yaki Point and see the sunrise over the East Rim, otherwise known as Desert View, nor do you want to leave before experiencing the sunset from Hopi, Yaki or Mather Points. There are evening park ranger programs and dark-sky star-gazing you won’t want to miss. During the daylight hours, be sure to take in all the sights, browse the visitor centers, stroll the Rim Trail or hike a bit down into the Canyon on Bright Angel or South Kaibab Trails, attend free ranger talks, and grab a bite to eat at one of the lodges or in the Marketplace Cafe. Because Grand Canyon Village at the South Rim is the most developed of the three rim areas, with most of the essential services you might need, like an ATM, pet kennel, post office, clinic, food, chapel, day care and National Park departments, you’ll find plenty of things to do from dawn ’til dusk.

Seasons

There are twelve glorious months a year to visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, and each season has its own strengths and negatives. The spring and fall are less crowded, and the Kaibab Plateau surrounding the South and North Rims is ablaze with wildflowers from late March through May and with golden aspen in early October. Winter at the South Rim offers the chance to see the multitudinous layers of rock dusted in white, and the smallest crowds of the year, opening the door to availability of the choicest lodging on the Rim and nearby. These three seasons may, however, bring unpredictable temperatures, limited visibility, reduced shuttle routes, shorter days, and fewer National Park programs from which to choose.

If your visit will occur during the peak summer season at the South Rim, May through September, you’ll certainly experience the best months when it comes to weather, available programs and school vacation schedules. But the flip side to visiting the South Rim in summer means crowds, sold-out hotels and tours; expect crowded parking lots, viewpoints, hiking trails, food outlets and ranger talks. The best way to combat the crowds is to plan at least 12 months in advance and book your reservations early for lodging, campgrounds, tours, and fine dining. You should also plan to park outside the entrance, and use the Park Shuttle system and your own walking power liberally. Above all, be sure to pack your patience and flexibility; it’s easier to relax and deal with the crowds and lines if you keep and open mind and an open schedule.

RESERVATIONS AND FEES

Reservations

Planning ahead is key to getting the most of your Grand Canyon trip. If you want to stay in one of the National Park lodges or Trailer Village on the South Rim, you can � and should � make your reservations up to 13 months in advance. The same is true for most whitewater rafting trips and mule rides down to Phantom Ranch on the Colorado River; your chances of getting a spot on these trips diminishes as the date approaches, so get in early. You may also want to make advance dining reservations at the El Tovar hotel dining room; El Tovar guests can make reservations 6 months in advance, while non-guests can book a table 30 days from arrival.

At 6 months out from arrival, on the advance planning timeline, you can make reservations for Mather Campground. Up to 4 months prior, you can submit a request to obtain a Backcountry Permit as well as a spot at one of the campgrounds below the Rim � at Bright Angel or Indian Garden Campgrounds. Click here for more information on campgrounds and backcountry permits.

Below, you’ll find resources for making reservations for the most quickly sold-out experiences:

  • Grand Canyon Lodges by Xanterra South Rim Resorts � www.grandcanyonlodges.com
    • El Tovar, Bright Angel Lodge, Kachina, Maswik, Thunderbird and Yavapai Lodges, Phantom Ranch and Trailer Village
    • El Tovar Dining Room and Phantom Ranch Canteen
    • Mule Rides and Overnight at Phantom Ranch (Inner Canyon)
  • Grand Canyon Railway � www.thetrain.com
  • Mather Campground tent and RV sites (no hook-ups) National Park Service � www.recreation.gov

The South Rim is a bargain: just $25 per vehicle. The fee is good for seven consecutive days and is good for both the South and North Rims. You can enter through either the south gate near Tusayan via Highway 64, or the east gate known as Desert View. Either way, you’ll need to pay the entrance fee to see the views of the South Rim; you just can’t get close enough to the rim to see anything from the road outside the Park. Once inside, the ranger talks, visitor centers and shuttles buses are all free to the public.

The average costs for hotels, tours and attractions at the South Rim represent a wide range of possibilities. From once-in-a-lifetime experiences to the most affordable family or group trips, there are things to do and places to stay at any budget level. Here’s just a sample of estimates, exclusive of taxes, gratuities and fees where applicable:

GETTING AROUND


Shuttles to the Park

If you’re interested in taking a shuttle to the Grand Canyon, from Las Vegas or Phoenix or Flagstaff, it is possible, although not our number one recommendation. We encourage folks to drive themselves, since each of the three possible routes, are all highway and relatively easy to drive, although some are better in inclement weather.

That being said, many international travelers and non-drivers seek shuttle transportation as their only means of getting to the destination. One can easily book a shuttle from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport to Sedona or Flagstaff, and pick up a second shuttle (or leg of the same trip) from there to the South Rim. Expect to pay a good deal more for shuttle service than a rental car, but you’ll benefit from being able to enjoy the scenery and leave the driving to someone else. Here’s a breakdown of average costs:

  • Phoenix to Flagstaff shuttle � $38�$42 per person each way
  • Sedona to Flagstaff shuttle � $25 per person each way
  • Flagstaff to South Rim taxi/shuttle � $42�$58 per person each way
  • Las Vegas to South Rim shuttle � $99 per person each way

Inside the Park

One of the best things about the South Rim is the hop-on-hop-off shuttle system. Park once and ride the shuttles at your convenience, from viewpoint to viewpoint, all the way from Hermit’s Rest to Yaki Point. The shuttles take visitors where cars cannot go, giving you access to the whole South Rim on your schedule. There are four color-coded routes, and the shuttles run every 15�30 minutes. In the off-season, you’ll find that one or two of the shuttle routes will be out of service. You can find more information about the specific routes and their operating dates on the National Park service’s website.

Rim-to-Rim

For those visitors interested in hiking rim-to-rim and taking a shuttle back to their original position, or starting a river rafting trip from the Upper Canyon, and getting a shuttle ride back after they’ve climbed out of the Canyon at the end of the trip, there are TransCanyon Shuttle and TheGrandCanyonShuttle.com. Both companies’ shuttles are priced at $85 per person each way, and make 2 stops a day between the South and North Rims, a 4 ? hour ride. Trans Canyon also runs a twice-daily shuttle from the South Rim to Marble Canyon/Lees Ferry, where most Upper Canyon river rafting trips put in. Reservations for both companies are required.

WHAT TO SEE

Best Tours

It is impossible to enumerate the «best» tours at the Grand Canyon. There is something for everyone, and no one-size-fits-all solution. However, we can recommend a few tours that appeal to a wide range of visitors, from all ages and abilities, with varied interests and expectations.

  • Helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon� $199 per person
    • Pros: Helicopter tours pack tons of drama, action and value into 45 minutes and they’re great for all ages, abilities and time of year
    • Cons: Not easy on the budget
  • Railway tours � starts from $75 per person
    • Pros: Grand Canyon Railway is a superb all-day option and appeals to kids from 2 to 92. Moderate to luxury fares available and it’s transportation and a tour in one package
    • Cons: Requires transportation to and usually an overnight in Williams
  • Air tours � $300 per person
    • Pros: The fastest way to get to the South Rim from Las Vegas or Phoenix/Scottsdale, and like the Railway, it’s transportation and a tour in one
    • Cons: Pricey
  • Guided day hiking � $110 per person
    • Pros: Arguably the best way to intimately experience the Grand Canyon, with all the safety, equipment and trip planning you mightn’t accomplish on your own
    • Cons: Must be in sufficient physical condition
  • River rafting (motor) rafting 5�9 day Lower Canyon � $1700 per person
    • Pros: This is the kind of bucket list experience you can brag about forever. Heavy on the adrenaline, and cheaper than an oar-powered trip
    • Cons: Not for young children, requires far advance planning and a hefty budget

Sunrise/Sunset

Mother nature presents two daily displays perhaps more spectacular than anything mankind could create. Each day at daybreak and «the magic hour,» crowds gather at the South Rim’s thirteen viewpoint areas to watch the sun appear and disappear over the Canyon rim, casting dramatic shadows and highlighting rugged textures. While it’s true that there is no one best place to watch the sunrise and set, there are good and better places. Your best bets are viewpoints that obtrude toward the canyon, with views to the east and west. The following are well-suited for sunrise or sunset:

  • Mather Point
  • Yaki Point
  • Hopi Point
  • Navajo Point
  • Mohave Point
  • Lipan Point
  • Desert View

Attractions

Inside the National Park, there are several historic buildings, visitor centers, gift shops, bookstores and museums to visit.

    • Lookout Studio
    • Hopi House
    • Train Depot
    • Desert View Watchtower

WHAT TO EXPECT

It’s Not a Theme Park

It may surprise you or thrill you to know that Grand Canyon National Park is not a theme park. While the South Rim’s Grand Canyon Village does offer most of the goods and services that one might want or need, and is capable of aptly serving the 4 million visitors that come each year, you won’t find a glittering boulevard of flashing signs, myriad restaurants, souvenir shops and high-rise hotels at the park’s access. The village of Tusayan, right outside the south gate, is a modest small town with several quality hotels and motels, a smattering of restaurants and the Grand Canyon airport. There’s no hubris, no glitz, no falseness to Tusayan � and that’s just the way the locals and most visitors like it.

Weather

Weather is one of the number one things visitors search about the Grand Canyon (case in point: you’re reading this.) Folks want to know what to expect of the temperature swings; sun, rain and snowfall; road conditions; what to pack and what to wear. We’ve covered these topics in depth here, but to satisfy your curiosity right here and now, hover over this interactive chart to see the average monthly temperatures at the South Rim: (Currently being updated)

Hiking Safety

Grand Canyon offers some of the most challenging hiking and backpacking found anywhere in North America. Steep trails, intense heat, fast changing weather, and elusive water and shade combine to make for harsh conditions — even on a good day. Over 250 visitors are evacuated from the Canyon for medical emergencies by the park service Search and Rescue team each year. Proper planning and training is imperative.

The reward for those willing to make the effort, a mere fraction of the visiting public, is a chance to marvel at the unfolding beauty of the Inner Canyon. For those that are capable it is truly an experience not to be missed.

Day hikers are not required to obtain a permit from the park service. They should choose their route carefully, and let someone know where they are going and when they plan on returning. Each year several day hikers become lost or disoriented in the Canyon, and several perish as a result. Don’t become a statistic. Do your homework, don’t take any undue risks, and stay well within your known limits in terms of physical exertion.

Plan for twice as much time and effort to go up than it takes to go down. As with all day hikes, get a reliable weather forecast and dress accordingly, wear sturdy shoes and a brimmed hat, and take a gallon of water per person, plus salty snacks for each person in your party.

The best day hike for newcomers to the Grand Canyon is a descent of the Bright Angel Trail. This historic trail begins in Grand Canyon Village on the South Rim and tumbles seven miles to the Colorado River below. However, going to the river and back in a single day is strongly discouraged for any hiker on any day. The good news is that there are obvious places to change course and head back uphill, including rest houses (with treated drinking water during the hot summer months) which are found at 1.5 mile increments between the top and Indian Garden Campground, located halfway to the bottom.

Cell Service

Cell phone service is intermittent at times, both on the Rim and certainly down in the Inner Canyon. Not all wireless providers offer coverage in the Grand Canyon. Be careful not to rely on your cell or smartphone for all your directions, reservations, up-to-the-minute weather and emergency safety needs while at the Grand Canyon. However, you can now access free, 2-minute ranger talks on topics ranging from geology, to historical sites, the California condors and air quality. Just look for the «Park Ranger Audio Tour» signs located all along the Rim, call 928-225-2907, and enter the stop number.

Grand Canyon South Rim Hotels

South Rim Hotels Near Park

The South Rim is the most popular rim at the Grand Canyon to visit. There are a few great South Rim hotel and lodging options in the park itself. These accommodations typically need to be reserved close to a year in advance. Visitors who really want to interact with the Grand Canyon and spend time here often camp. But if camping is not a option for you, El Tovar, Bright Angel Lodge, Maswik Lodge, Kachina Lodge, Thunderbird Lodge, Yavapai Lodge and Phantom Ranch’s famous cabins are all excellent options.

The nearest town to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon is Tusayan. It’s about 6 miles from the entrance of the Grand Canyon and offers South Rim visitors hotel and motel accommodations. There is not much else in this area so if you are thinking that you’re just going to go see the Grand Canyon, take a few pictures and walk around a little, you might only want to stay one night. Going on a helicopter tour, guided hike and bus tour can really enhance your Grand Canyon experience and assist in making the most of your trip.


If you’d like to stay longer and explore more of the area, perhaps Williams, Flagstaff or Sedona hotels would provide you a better jumping off point to explore the great Southwest.

Williams Hotels

Williams is a mountainside town on the Historical Route 66 and just 60 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Williams has several excellent lodging choices ranging from budget motels to luxury hotels. Williams is a good option if you want to be close to the Grand Canyon but want dining options, markets and shops as well. It offers more things to do than Tusayan, but it’s further from the Grand Canyon itself.

The Grand Canyon Railway with its famous Christmastime Polar Express and year-round rides to the South Rim leaves from Williams making this an incredibly convenient and family-friendly location to stay in if a train ride is on your agenda. Williams hotels cater to Grand Canyon visitors and have helpful and knowledgeable staff that can help you make the most of your trip. Ask about attractions like the drive-through wildlife park and cowboy cookouts. Williams is also only 35 miles from Flagstaff, a mecca for outdoor enthusiasts. Staying in Williams is a great jumping off point for travelers who want to spend time at the Grand Canyon and explore Flagstaff and other parts of the Great Southwest.

Flagstaff Hotels

Flagstaff is about 79 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and offers cabins, bed and breakfasts, hotels, vacation rentals and more. The city itself is at 7,000 ft elevation and rests at the base of the Mt. Humphreys and Mt. Elden offering visitors and residents the opportunity to ski, hike, mountain bike, camp and explore an alpine environment just two hours north of the Phoenix desert. Flagstaff is the ideal mix of close proximity to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and city comforts. There are other things to do in the area in addition to seeing the Grand Canyon and is a place a visitor could enjoy for a few days.

Flagstaff hotels are in demand year round, but there is typically always some type of lodging available. Its cooler temperatures during the summer make it Arizona locals’ favorite place to visit during the summer, and its high elevation allows for winter sports and activities. Also just a 45-minute drive southwest of Flagstaff is the red rock wonderland, Sedona. Everything requires a bit of a drive out here, so make sure you plan your transportation accordingly.

Sedona Hotels

Sedona is about 110 miles from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and offers the most luxurious and scenic hotel and lodging options for Grand Canyon visitors. Sedona is a destination in its own right. Known for its stunning red rocks, beautiful creeks and rare energy, Sedona attracts visitors from all over the world. Grand Canyon visitors will find that Sedona offers hotels and resorts with the highest quality of service and amenities. From spa treatments to five-star dining opportunities, Sedona never ceases to amaze its visitors.

Also, Sedona’s elevation is about 4,500 ft and is on average 15�F or more warmer than the South Rim. Depending on the time of year, Sedona might be a better Grand Canyon lodging option if you’re looking for more moderate temperatures.

Hotels are not the only Sedona lodging choices. Grand Canyon visitors, especially our international friends, may prefer a bed and breakfast. Sedona’s myriad bed & breakfasts each offers a charming and unique experience, many with extraordinary views, accommodations and amenities. Or one can rent a cottage along the creek or even rent a Sedona vacation home rental. Whatever your needs are, Sedona will have the perfect place for you to stay when visiting the South Rim of the Grand Canyon.

At an elevation of

4,500 ft, Sedona is often a better Grand Canyon lodging choice, depending on seasonal temperatures, road conditions and the length of your itierary. Sedona is about a two hour drive north of Phoenix Sky Harbor airport. There are Grand Canyon tour shuttles that pick up in Sedona, but it becomes more difficult to get around without a car. Everything is spaced out here in the Southwest, so plan your transportation accordingly.

Grand Canyon South Rim

The Most Visited Attraction In Arizona.

The South Rim of the Grand Canyon attracts over 5 million visitors each year and by far is the most visited side of the Canyon. That’s because it is the most accessible and provides the most amenities. As with all sides of the Canyon, the South Rim features astounding views of what took Mother Nature millions and millions of years to create. That why it has earned the distinction as one of the world’s Seven Wonders.

Particularly during summer vacation months, visitors should expect heavy traffic and parking problems. If you want to avoid crowds, the best time to visit is from November through February. During the winter, heavy snow at the high altitude could be a travel consideration. However, the views of the Canyon dusted with snow is a spectacularly beautiful sight.


The Canyon South Rim is only 60 miles north of Williams, Arizona on State Route 64 and about 90 miles northwest of Flagstaff, Arizona on Highway 180 to SR 64. There are hotels at the Grand Canyon South Rim area, but many visitors prefer hotels in Williams or Flagstaff hotels.

Getting Around At The South Rim.

The village of Tusayan is located two miles south of the park boundary and has an airport, shops, hotels, an IMAX cinema and a large, affordable RV park.

Canyon View Information Plaza is the park’s visitor facility. Here you will find the Canyon View Center, a large bookstore, and ample restrooms, all within a short walk of Mather Point. When you arrive at the Rim, park your vehicle at one of the many parking areas and take advantage of the free shuttles. Each parking lot has a shuttle stop nearby. The shuttle system has three main non-overlapping routes:

1. Village Route. This shuttle explores the developed areas including Grand Canyon Village, hotels, restaurants, and the Visitor Center as well as various viewing points to gaze across the magnificent panoramas.

2. Hermit Rest Route. Choose this shuttle to explore about 8 miles of the South Rim just west of Grand Canyon Village.

3. Kaibab Trail Route. Kaibab Trail Route � This shuttle goes to Yaki Point and explores the South Kaibab Trail.

You can get off at any shuttle stop and explore the area as long as you want, catching another shuttle later. Shuttles operate continuously starting before dawn and winding down just after sunset.

Those with motor homes should head to Parking Lot E and locate the Backcountry Information Center. There, you�ll find large, pull-through spaces that are perfect for accommodating your RV.

Drive Along The Rim.

If you prefer to drive your own vehicle along the rim, there are many overlooks accessible by car that offer spectacular views of the Canyon. Make your way to Desert View Drive which follows closely along the Rim for 26 miles (42 km) east of Grand Canyon Village to Desert View which is the East Rim Entrance to the South Rim.

Desert View Drive is open to private vehicles throughout the year. Hermit Road follows the rim for 8 miles (13 km) west from Grand Canyon Village to Hermits Rest. Hermit Road is closed to private vehicles much of the year, but the park shuttle bus provides transportation to the overlooks year-round.

Hiking Trails And Popular View Points.

Mather�s Point is the first viewpoint you�ll come across and is also one of the most crowded. While it�s the first, it�s not necessarily the best, especially if you can�t find a parking spot. As an alternative, head to Yavapai Point which is about a half mile away or Park Headquarters which is about one mile away. The advantage of these two viewpoints is that in addition to the view, you also get access to free shuttle buses and rest rooms.

A hiking trail, known as the Rim Trail, follows the rim from Pipe Creek Vista to Hermits Rest. The section of the Rim Trail between Pipe Creek Vista and Maricopa Point is paved, and mostly wheelchair accessible. Unpaved portions of the trail, between Maricopa Point and Hermits Rest, are narrow and close to the edge. Bicycles are not permitted on the Rim Trail.

Yavapai Observation Station at Yavapai Point offers panoramic views of the canyon, including the Colorado River and Phantom Ranch.

For viewing and photographing the canyon, the best light is early or late in the day. Midday sun tends to flatten the view and soften the colors. Remember that days are short in the winter and long in the summer. If you plan to see the canyon at sunrise or sunset, it is recommended that you be on the rim at least an hour before sunset or sunrise.

The Colorado River flows along the bottom of the canyon, 5000 feet/1524 m below the rim. Because of the enormous depth of Grand Canyon, the river is visible only from certain viewpoints. It is a two-day hike to the river and back from the South Rim. It is possible to drive to the Colorado River at Lees Ferry (near Marble Canyon, Arizona), but it is about a 2.5 hour one drive from the South Rim. Lees Ferry marks the official beginning of Grand Canyon.

Grand Canyon Railway.

Another way to get to the Grand Canyon is to climb aboard the Grand Canyon Railway. This vintage train departs from the town of Williams and takes you on a journey back in time. This train service has been operating since 1901. Now you can book a hotel in Williams and climb aboard a restored train and see the sights along the way to the Grand Canyon just as tourists did a century ago.

Lodging at the South Rim.

Grand Canyon Village offers a variety of lodging options for just about any vacation budget including hotels such as El Tovar, Bright Angel, Phantom Ranch, Kachina Lodge, Thunderbird Lodge, Maswik Lodge, and Yavapai Lodge as well as several campgrounds.

Camping in the South Rim.

Camping along the South Rim is possible at several campgrounds located inside the park including the year-round Mather Campground, Trailer Village, and Desert View Campground. You will pay an additional fee in addition to the park entrance fee.

Mather Campground is located in Grand Canyon Village offering sites without hookups for tents, motor homes (under 30 feet), and trailers (under 30 feet). If you have a larger motor home or RV or if you want hookups, go to the Trailer Village Campground instead. It�s located next door to Mather Campground. Both campgrounds accept reservations.

Contact Mather at 1-877-444-6777 or Trailer Village at 1-888-297-2757.

Desert View Campground is open seasonally from May to mid-October. This campground is located about 26 miles east of Grand Canyon Village and is mainly designed for tents and small trailers (30 feet maximum). Only a few sites can even accommodate a small motor home and none offer hookups. In addition, this campground is a first-come, first-served campground.

Park Entrance Fees.

Single-visit entrance fees are good for seven days and are charged either by the carload or individually. The vehicle pass costs $25. The individual pass for pedestrians, bicyclists, and motorcyclists costs $12. As part of the National Parks system, the Grand Canyon National Park also accepts National Park Passes, Hologram upgrade, Golden Age Passports, and Golden Access Passports. Fees are subject to change without prior notice.
