How to Plan a Successful Trip to the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon leaves a lasting impression to all of its visitors. The massive size, its magnificent shapes, and its vibrant colors all work harmoniously to create incomparable beauty. If you are planning to visit masterpiece, here are tips to plan your trip successfully!

  • Accommodations

When it comes to accommodation, hotels, lodges, and campgrounds sell out quickly. As the Grand Canyon receives millions of guests per year, it is rather difficult to find accommodations upon arrival.

To ensure that you have a hotel room or space where you can sleep at night, make reservations a few weeks ahead of time. Although this may sound unnecessary, there are actually instances when visitors schedule their accommodations a few months prior to arrival.

There are also hotels around the Grand Canyon which are significantly cheaper than rates inside the national park. Make sure to consider as your backup plan if the hotel or lodge that you want to stay at is already booked.

  • Activities

Sightseeing is the first and foremost activity of visitors when they visit the Grand Canyon. But did you know that the national park has so much to offer. For first timers it is ideal if you hire a tour agency to guide you throughout your trip. You may also ask park rangers of the many activity offerings they have on site. From geology and history classes to climbing Havasu falls after a long ten mile hike.

  • Go to other places

Grand Canyon is near other attractions and popular tourist destination (aside from Havasupai of course). If you can complete all the activities you’re excited on trying, you can then visit other sites with natural beauty and historical significance.
