Grand Canyon North Rim

Stay at the Grand Canyon Lodge - North Rim, the only lodging inside the National Park on the North Rim. Located at Bright Angel Point, the Lodge was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1987. Here you can enjoy the quiet serenity of the North Rim while enjoying comfortable guest rooms and cabins.

Accommodations at the Grand Canyon Lodge - North Rim consist of Frontier cabins, Western and larger Pioneer cabins, located close to the rim, as well as some motel rooms, located within an easy walking distance from the canyon rim.

Located only 10 miles from the South Rim by air, the North Rim is a 215 mile, 5 hour drive from Grand Canyon Village. At 8,000 feet the elevation of the North Rim is approximately 1,000 feet higher than the South Rim, and as a result features more coniferous trees and cooler temperatures.

The roads to the North Rim are open only during the summer (from approx 15 May to the first fall snow fall), while the in-park facilities usually close by 15 Oct, regardless of the weather.

With far fewer visitors, this area can be a great place to enjoy the peace and majesty of the canyon. The main viewpoints are Bright Angel Point, Cape Royal (where the Colorado River can be seen), and Point Imperial (the highest viewpoint in the park).

The deck has fantastic views of the canyon.
