When it comes to breath-taking views, diverse hiking trails, and endless desert views that are almost otherworldly, there aren’t many better places on earth than the Grand Canyon.
This vast, natural wonder of the world is so much more than just an awe-inspiring feature, and with Newmarket Holidays Grand Canyon tours you can learn about everything this iconic location has to offer.
Located entirely in northern Arizona, the Grand Canyon is one of the most visited national parks in the United States. The immense chasm has developed over millions of years, and for thousands of years, many Native Americans have inhabited the area, building settlements and the Canyon’s many caves. The park was founded as Grand Canyon National Monument in 1908 by President Theodore Roosevelt and became a National Park in February 1919.
Aside from enjoying the brilliant views from the North Rim, when visiting the Grand Canyon National Park you can also wander through the hiking trails of Kaibab National Forest, where there’s plenty of unique flora and fauna to capture your imagination. If you’re more of a city-slicker than a nature-lover you can still enjoy this astounding natural feature: head to the Las Vegas strip where you can take a Grand Canyon helicopter tour for an aerial view of the imposing gorge.
Grand Canyon holidays are perfect for thrill-seekers, nature-lovers, and those who just want to see something unique. The relative closeness of Vegas to the Grand Canyon National Park means it’s also a fantastic spot for those who want to be in and among the bustle of a lively city but might need to escape for a few hours. Really, a Grand Canyon trip has it all.
El Tovar is a Grand Canyon mainstay
Having been operating for over a century, it's a must for visitors. They have a number of classic dishes, some of which have been unchanged since the restaurant was inaugurated in the early twentieth century. We would definitely suggest trying the delectable Arizona-grown beef tenderloin.
Although the vast emptiness of the Grand Canyon doesn’t really invoke images of lush greenery and endlessly sprouting plant life, there are plenty of wines produced in close vicinity to the natural wonder. Most restaurants around the canyon offer some of these Arizonian products, so make sure to have a try of the fruits of the desert.
