Why Take a Tour of Grand Canyon West Rim from Las Vegas?

Visitors flock from around the world to discover the wonders of the Grand Canyon every day. The canyon's spectacular red rock and awe-inspiring cliffs are the ultimate bucket-list item for millions. But did you know that the vast canyon has three areas, or rims, that are available for touring? So, if you only have one day, how do you know which one is right for you?

Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Are you an adventurer at heart?
  • Would you call yourself a bit of a history buff?
  • Do you enjoy discovering "hidden gems" in an area?

If you answered "Yes" to any of the above, then the Grand Canyon West Rim may be the ticket. The west side of the canyon is less crowded, yet still showcases the magnificent lookouts that characterize this natural wonder of the world.

Contrary to popular belief, the West Rim is also not part of the Grand Canyon National Park. The gorgeous land is owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe. During your visit, make sure to spend some time at Eagle Point for a dose of the land's rich cultural history.

There's no shortage of stunning views from this side of the canyon. With just a short climb, you'll reach world-famous lookouts like Eagle Point or Guano Point for inspiring 360-degree views. If you're feeling a little extra brave, mosey right up to one of the Canyon's dramatic ledges and take a peek straight down to the rushing Colorado River below.

Step back into the modern world at the Skywalk Grand Canyon. This horseshoe-shaped, cantilever bridge suspends you 70 feet over the canyon's rim, and 4,000 feet above its floor. Gaze through the bridge's glass bottom or over its ledge for some of the West Rim's most breathtaking sights.
