Grand Canyon. Beyond Imagination.

Breathtaking. A soul enriching experience. Larger and more beautiful than you can imagine. Massive. Beyond comprehension. The South Rim of the Grand Canyon is a must see. Stand in awe of what took Mother Nature millions upon millions of years to create. Feel the aura of ancient Native American civilizations that fills the air. Wish for sightings of the almost extinct California Condors, the biggest bird in North America as they soar above the canyon floor. Seize the moments. Treasure the experience.

Do the Grand Canyon South Rim Loop. Take Highway 180 from Flagstaff to Highway 64 North to the main South Rim entrance at Grand Canyon Village. It's about a 70 mile drive. The Village is the busiest spot at the Canyon. Traffic is heavy during the peak months. Stroll the Canyon's edge on the Rim Trail. Visit the historic buildings. Walk out on the Yavapai Observation Station. Join the folks at Mather Lookout Point. Don't miss the amazing views from Kolb Studio and Lookout Studio.

Scenic Desert View Drive. Head east on Desert View Drive. It's about 26 miles of pleasantness as your meander in and out of cliff edge views. Stop at Grand View Point as you make your way to the East Rim, called Desert View, the least crowded area of the South Rim, but arguably features the best views. It is more tranquil here. More serene. Climb the Watch Tower. All the way to the top. The views of the Colorado River below are astounding. On a clear day you can see the eastern beginning of the Grand Canyon that marks the beginning of the 267 mile long Grand Canyon.

Take a different route back to Flagstaff. Exit the east entrance and head to the historic Cameron Trading Post on the Navajo Indian Reservation. Notice distant views of the western edges of the Painted Desert. This is a good time to satisfy the tummy with some authentic Indian Fry Bread Tacos. Shop for Indian crafted gifts and souvenirs. As the exciting day comes to a close, head back to Flagstaff and anticipate sights of the majestic San Francisco Peaks, the highest mountain range in Arizona at 12,300 feet of elevation. Have a great dinner and replay the experience with a good night's sleep at your Flagstaff hotel or Bed and Breakfast.

Don't miss a moment. Consider taking the VIP Grand Canyon Loop Tour with Silver Spur Tours. Let an expert guide do all the driving. He or she will narrate the tour within the comfort of a Mercedes-built customized touring van that seats a maximum of eight guests. High-back, leather captain's seats and 76 inches of interior height make for enhanced comfort.
