Grand Circle

Explore the Grand Circle

In complement to the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park, there lies a circumference of breathtaking country offering Arizona and Utah visitors easy access to some of the country's most spectacular destinations, often referred to as The Grand Circle: Monument Valley, Bryce Canyon, Canyon De Chelly, Zion National Park, Marble Canyon and of course, Grand Canyon. Sightseeing, white water rafting and backpacking/rock climbing opportunities abound in nearby natural wonders such as Antelope Slot Canyon; Horseshoe Bend; Lake Powell, Wahweap and Antelope Point Marinas; Lees Ferry; Rainbow Bridge; Navajo National Monument; Indian ruins and Navajo Village. This area's scenic beauty has been the backdrop for such famous movies as the 1967 "Planet of the Apes"; "Maverick" with Mel Gibson, and most recently, the remake of "Planet of the Apes" and the film "Evolution," which was executive produced by Steven Spielberg.

If you plan to explore the Grand Circle, use the North Rim as your jumping off place, and plan a week-long tour of these outstanding destinations.
