Visit the Grand Canyon
Millions of years of rushing water from the Colorado River carved out this magnificent site — erecting a temple to mother earth’s strength with red rock and sweeping cliffs. Welcome to the Grand Canyon, where colourful landscape, immense size, and deep orange hues distinguish this 277 mile long canyon as one of the world’s most remarkable destinations.
This section of the Colorado River basin in Arizona attracts millions of visitors every year who become awe-inspired by the sheer magnitude of beauty which nature creates without human hand. Adventurers take part in beautiful sightseeing, exhilarating skydiving and river rafting, hiking, camping, and exploring hundreds of hidden caves and alcoves. Traverse the area on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass pedestrian bridge, and find yourself hiking through the Havasu Falls to add new twists to a Canyon exploration. The miles of distinguishable land are ripe with opportunity to explore, all while making memories to fill your bucket list photo album with.
Arizona’s Phoenix Sky Harbour International Airport is the 8th busiest airport in the United States and also the one closest to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Book your tickets to this airport from a host of national and international airports. Your travel from here to the Grand Canyon is under 4 hours through Arizona’s picturesque landscape. Pick up a rental car directly at the Phoenix Airport and make your way to the orange coloured land. The resident of Australia can catch a direct flight from Sydney, Melbourne, Perth, Gold Coast, Canberra, and Adelaide. The Grand Canyon itself has operating hours and seasons to know before you book your trip. If you are visiting the USA then don’t forget to explore New York, Texas, Washington, California, Massachusetts and Florida. The South Rim is open all year round, though, some facilities located there may close during the winter months. The North Rim is open for public travel from May 15 until October 15 and reservations for lodging is strongly recommended during these months.
