Grand Canyon National Park
Hikers take in sweeping views of the Grand Canyon
Natural wonder worth a spot on a must-see list
Powerful and inspiring, Grand Canyon National Park in northern Arizona is no doubt on every traveler’s must-see list. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is arguably one of the USA’s most famous landmarks and encompasses nearly 5,000 square kilometers of plummeting canyons, multicolored rocks, dramatic cliffs and stunning ravines.
There are plenty of overlooks from which you can admire the view, including Mather Point and the Toroweap Overlook. Even though the favorite activity at Grand Canyon is to stand on the edge and overlook the beautiful landscape, there are many other ways to enjoy the park’s natural splendor. Take a mule ride along the South Rim trail or take a white-water rafting trip down the Colorado River. Alternatively, you can admire the canyon from above on a helicopter tour.
