Experience breathtaking Grand Canyon sunset views while touring the South Rim in an iconic, heated Pink Jeep® Wrangler. Your first stop at Yavapai Point is the perfect introduction to the Grand Canyon. Here, the eons of erosion reveal layer upon layer of sediment. Your local, certified adventure guide (who is also a Wilderness First Responder) will share the history of the canyon.
Step back in time as you drive by Grand Canyon Village, a historic district that was once a stop for stagecoaches. The village is home to El Tovar and Hopi House, both of which opened in 1905. As you take in views of this bustling hub, it’s easy to get a sense that you’re sharing the street with pioneers of centuries ago.
Enjoy a short, scenic ride to Hermits Rest. This area and its buildings pay tribute to a prospector who carved a trail into the canyon and later lived near Dripping Springs. Hop out of the Jeep and explore the wonders below on a short hike via a rocky path below the rim.
Along the way, your guide will show you how to find real marine fossils and teach you about the canyon’s ancient origins. You’ll also view the Hermit Rapids and other landmarks, such as the long-abandoned Hermit Camp. The hike is 1-mile roundtrip.
Your tour of the Grand Canyon includes park admission fees and a free ticket to the IMAX® Movie, "Grand Canyon: Rivers of Time." This newly released, 35-minute epic IMAX® experience immerses you in the ancient landscape. Soar along the canyon crevasses like an eagle. Feel the rush of the Colorado River rapids with John Wesley Powell and his intrepid explorers. And as the rivers of time unfold, discover the rich history of the landscapes and Native peoples through the first photos ever taken in the Grand Canyon (circa 1872).
Park admission fees are for tour only. Re-entry to the Grand Canyon National Park requires the purchase of a park pass.
