Grand Canyon West Rim Tours with Skywalk
The west side of the Grand Canyon attracts over 1 million visitors from around the world each year. Seems like a lot, right? But when you compare that to the +5 million people who visit the Grand Canyon National Park, the number pales in comparison.
The West Rim is less crowded, yet still features the magnificent lookouts that characterize it as a Natural Wonder of the World. The land also uniquely showcases its rich cultural history. Contrary to popular belief, the West Rim is owned and operated by the native Hualapai Tribe.

You'll feel like you're walking in the sky (thus the name) while taking in unparalleled views of the West Rim.
Fun fact about the Grand Canyon Skywalk: The 10-foot wide glass bridge can sustain the weight of seventy fully loaded 747 passenger jets. Talk about an engineering marvel!
