What is the difference between the South Rim and West Rim of the Grand Canyon?

Many people don't realize that the Grand Canyon has two distinct regions, or rims, of the canyon that they can tour.

The South Rim is the region of the canyon that encompasses the Grand Canyon National Park. The South Rim features the lush Kaibab National Forest and the historic Grand Canyon Village. Aerial tours of the South Rim soar over the widest and deepest parts of the Grand Canyon. Meanwhile, ground tours can take guests to world-famous lookouts like Bright Angel Point, Mather Point, Duck on a Rock, and Yavapai Point.

The West Rim is owned and operated by the Native American Hualapai Nation. In this region of the Grand Canyon, visitors can walk along the world-renowned Skywalk Bridge or visit famous lookouts like Eagle Point and Guano Point. GCSA helicopter tours have access to an exclusive landing spot at the bottom of the West Rim, allowing guests to explore the canyon floor and embark on a pontoon boat cruise of the Colorado River.

Compare Grand Canyon tours at both rims to find your perfect adventure.
