Experience The Grand Canyon From Above. There are many ways to see the Grand Canyon. Different viewpoints, stopping sections, and so on. Are you looking for a remarkable way to see the canyon? Then check it out from above. Yes you read that right. It is time to soar to new heights. Literally! This is your chance to take a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. Imagine a narrated tour that gives you stunning views of the canyon – as well as plenty of interesting information about the area. Enjoy expansive views and closer looks at some astounding rock formations. It will make your trip to the Grand Canyon better than you ever imagined it could be.

Be An Adventure Seeker and Go White Water Rafting. There are many different types of travellers. Some like to sit on the sidelines. Others like to get right into the action. Do you fall into the latter category? Then this next Grand Canyon activity is the perfect fit for you. Go white water rafting along the Colorado River. This is a popular choice for adventure travellers. Here you can take all-day (or multi-day) rafting tours that allow you to experience the Grand Canyon like never before. You won’t just be looking at the views. You will truly become one with nature.

 

Go For an Unforgettable Grand Canyon Hike. Want to take some enviable travel photos? Then you might want to consider a Grand Canyon hike. There are many hiking trails to enjoy. Some take you to certain spots (like the Navajo Falls and noteworthy rock formations) and others give you a peek at some of the many views the canyon has to offer. You can go for an hour or so (be sure to bring food and water with you) or turn it into a full blown camping experience. Many visitors are known to set up camp and tackle more challenging – and time consuming – hikes. Will you be one of them?

Take a Mule Ride Into the Grand Canyon. You don’t have to hike through the rocky terrain to get an up close and personal look at the Grand Canyon. There are other options. Like a mule ride, for example. There are daytime mule rides available for travellers. They give you the opportunity to see the sights in a totally unique way. Just be aware: these can sell out quickly. If a mule ride is something you want to do? Be sure to book ahead. That is the best way to avoid disappointment.
