Blaze a Trail Below the Rim
Explore the South Rim while taking in unobstructed sunset views in our open-air 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. Below, you can spot the famous South Kaibab and Bright Angel trails. Your Certified Interpretive Guide and Wilderness First Responder will also point out Phantom Ranch while sharing the story behind the canyon’s sole lodging option below the rim.
At Grand Canyon Village, step back in time at 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. Your guide will share little-known facts about the surrounding structures that remain largely unchanged. As you walk around this bustling hub, it’s easy to get a sense that you’re sharing the street with pioneers 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.
After you’ve enjoyed a hands-on experience with the area’s landmarks and buildings, you’ll be able to explore further with Grand Canyon: The Hidden Secrets. This IMAX classic presents history lessons about the explorers of yesteryear and shares wild canyon locations where few people have tread. This tour includes a hike on a rocky path below the rim, 1 mile roundtrip.
Admissions fees and IMAX movie tickets are included in the price of your tour. However, it does not include re-admission to the park after your excursion.
