North Rim Tours

While you won't find many ground, air or helicopter tours direct to the North Rim itself, you certainly have some good alternatives. First, you can take a Grand Canyon shuttle from Flagstaff or the South Rim, priced ranging from $158 - $200 per person each way. There is also a multi-day tour that includes the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park on a Grand Circle excursion to 8 National Parks and monument. Third, of course you can always reach the North Rim on foot; hire a professional guide to lead you on a Rim-to-Rim (or Rim-to-Rim-to-Rim) backpacking trip that you'll never forget.

The next two tours aren't destined for the North Rim of the Park, but they're certainly worth mentioning. Take a multi-day river rafting trip down the Colorado River from Lees Ferry/Marble Canyon, which is near the North Rim, and navigate the Upper Canyon. And finally, there is a 30-minute air tour from Las Vegas to Bar-10 Ranch, a decidedly remote 'off-the-grid' vacation lodge and ranch located on the Arizona Strip outside the National Park but only 9 miles from that portion of the North Rim, located 80 unpaved miles from St. George, UT.
