Grand Canyon Tour
Grand Canyon is one of Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the beautiful, incredible place that you never forget when you come and visit this place during your holidays time. The information provided on these pages is for you to come explore the grand canyon tour and to help you begin to understand this "Seven Natural Wonders of the World."
The three developed viewpoints on the North Rim offer a sense of looking across the expanse of the canyon, rather than into its depths. Views of the Colorado River are rare and distant. These descriptions may help you to plan your visit.
Point Imperial and Cape Royal are reached via a winding scenic drive. The trip to both points, with short walks at each and several stops at pullouts along the way, can easily take half a day. Point Imperial, here the canyon transforms as the narrow walls of Marble Canyon, visible only as a winding gash, open dramatically to become “grand.” Layers of red and black Precambrian rocks, not visible at Bright Angel Point, add contrast and color. Part of the viewpoint is accessible.
Cape Royal provides a panorama up, down, and across the canyon. With seemingly unlimited vistas to the east and west, it is popular for both sunrise and sunset. The sweeping turn of the Colorado River at Unkar Delta is framed through the natural arch of Angels Window. Look for the Desert View Watchtower across the canyon on the South Rim. This popular viewpoint is accessible via a paved, level trail.
Point Sublime, to reach here you need to takes a bit of effort, and four-wheel drive. The western-most of the Grand Canyon North Rim viewpoints. Most visitors make a stop at Bright Angel Point, at the southern end of the entrance road. From the parking area it is a short, easy walk to Grand Canyon Lodge and a classic view of the canyon.

When I look at the grand canyon through the pictures that some friends has sent me, I thought it was only a huge hole in the face of the planet. But when I got to experience the area, it is just filled with a lot of great adventure. There are so much more to the place than the pictures sent to me. Hopefully by this summer, I get to experience it all again.
