Experience a Grand Canyon winter and enjoy this Northern Arizona natural wonder.

 

Most people think of Arizona and envision desert landscapes complete with saguaro cactus and hot temperatures, but our Grand Canyon State is full of surprises.  What better way to treat yourselves to a very special Arizona vacation than to visit one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World this fall and winter and experience a different side of Grand Canyon, one that many people don’t even realize exists!

The snow has begun to fall in Northern Arizona, making this a great time to experience the cozy warmth of the radiant heat gas fireplaces and the warm hospitality of Grand Canyon Bed and Breakfast.

You can also enjoy staying warm and viewing the winter scenery while others do the driving as you ‘motor’ to the Rim and tour Grand Canyon National Park on a small group van tour.  Let a professional driver navigate what can be the snowy/icy roads of the High Plains and the Kaibab Plateau and teach you about the flora and fauna as well as the geology of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.

Another option is to ‘ride the rails’ aboard a vintage train along the century-old line leading from Williams, AZ to the Grand Canyon!

You’ll be sure to keep warm on your journey to the heart of the historic Grand Canyon South Rim Village.  Once you arrive at Grand Canyon, you’ll enjoy a much calmer and quieter visit this time of year as the summer crowds have cleared and the fall has quickly turned into winter.  This truly is a wonderful time of year to enjoy all that Grand Canyon has to offer — from spectacular vistas that just might be dusted in a beautiful layer of snow to the grand lobby of the historic El Tovar Hotel or Bright Angel Lodge with  blazing fireplaces welcoming guests inside to enjoy your winter afternoon!
