VIDEO & PHOTO GALLERY

The Grand Canyon’s Finest Finale

Take part in a special evening adventure. Our Certified Interpretive Guides will share first-hand knowledge of the Grand Canyon’s unique landscape, and take you to remote viewpoints along the South and East Rims. Witness Mother Nature’s ultimate grand finale—the dramatic colors of the Southwest at sunset.

You’ll ride in one of our custom-built Pink® Jeep® Wranglers. With no barrier between you and the high desert, this is the perfect way to experience open views and evening breezes.

The first stop is at Pipe Creek Vista, where you will stare down a beautifully colored side canyon that carves its way into the greater whole of the Grand Canyon. From here, look out to see Vishnu Schist—the oldest rocks at the Grand Canyon. These dark layers are estimated to be over 1 billion years old. You’ll also see Hance Rapids, some of the most violent whitewater on the Colorado River. In the distance lies the Unkar Delta, where the river meets a creek to form forceful rapids and fertile land where ancient Pueblo people once cultivated crops. You’ll be awestruck by the towering rock spires, and find a spiritual moment to breathe in the quiet beauty.

Continue on to Navajo Point. At around 7,500 feet, this overlook is the highest point on the South Rim. You’ll see where the Colorado River makes a “big bend” and veers in a new direction. The blue of the sky contrasts with the vivid reds and oranges of the canyon walls to create ideal photo ops.

Your guide has a deep knowledge of the Grand Canyon, as well as the native people who have lived here for centuries. You’ll hear forgotten tales from different points of view and learn how some natural landmarks were named. Examples include Sinking Ship rock formation and Moran Point, which gets its name from a little-known figure in history.

Soon you’ll visit the Desert View Watchtower. An influential female architect carefully planned this 70-foot stone tower in 1932. It offers a place to sit and reflect upon views of the Painted Desert and the surrounding 100 miles. Your tour’s grand finale happens at Lipan Point, as the sun descends behind the cliffs and the desert begins to glow.

Your tour includes a trip to the nearby IMAX Theater where you’ll see Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets, a timeless film presented on a six-story screen. You’ll get a history lesson about the explorers of yesteryear, and experience wild places that few have seen.

Your tour price includes park admission fees so you can focus on making memories.
