Did you know that the Grand Canyon is one of the Seven Wonders of the Natural World? Just seeing it in pictures will make you see why. However, visiting the Grand Canyon in person is on a whole other level. Soaring cliffs, dramatic valleys, and rugged nature abound!
The Grand welcomes millions of visitors each year. It's currently one of the world's top tourist destinations. One of the best ways to get to and explore the canyon is with one of the many Grand Canyon tour packages.
In addition to taking care of all the logistics and planning, Grand Canyon tour packages help ensure that you see the best of this remarkable place.
For anyone planning to stay in Las Vegas, taking a day trip to the Grand Canyon is worth every minute — it will allow you a chance to get out of the city and indulge in a truly unique outdoor experience. You definitely can’t go wrong by signing up for a Grand Canyon tour from Las Vegas.
How Accessible Is the Grand Canyon?
The Grand Canyon stretches across more than a million acres in northwest Arizona and is relatively far from major cities. The Grand Canyon National Park is about 275 miles from Las Vegas. That's a roughly 4-hour drive. It's slightly closer to Phoenix, about a 3.5-hour drive across 225 miles.
A popular city to stay in when visiting the Grand Canyon is Flagstaff. It has its own airport and is only 74 miles from the Grand Canyon National Park.
Grand Canyon South Rim Vs West Rim Tour Packages
If the Grand Canyon National Park sounds far, you have a closer option that still lets you experience the canyon's grandeur.
The Grand Canyon National Park is located at the canyon's South Rim. However, the West Rim is a short drive away for anyone in Las Vegas It's less than half the distance — just 125 miles — and takes just 2-2.5 hours to get to from Las Vegas.
If waking up at the crack of dawn is simply not your thing, we have the perfect Grand Canyon Sleep-in Half-Day Tour that departs from Las Vegas at 10 am and takes you to see the breathtaking Grand Canyon West Rim, home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk.
If you're extra short on time, you can also look into Grand Canyon helicopter tour prices. Whichever way you get there, you can take in some of the stunning attractions and views and see some of the local flora and fauna.
Even though the South Rim is further from the city, it is definitely worth the extra miles. It's home to the most iconic trails and lookout points in the canyon. If driving yourself there sounds tiring (understandably!), there are lots of convenient tour packages out there with variety in terms of schedule, pricing, and stops.
