Grand Canyon Arizona The Grand Canyon is a fantastic natural formation carved by the Colorado river that should be viewed at least once in everyone's lifetime. Stretching 277 miles, with a width of up to 18 miles, the canyon is one mile deep. While gazing deep into the canyon you can't help but wonder how one small river made such a magnificent sight. Visitors will learn about the history of the canyon, what awesome archaeological finds were discovered here, and see breathtaking beauty throughout the canyon. Nearly 5 million visitors come to the Grand Canyon yearly, and for good reason. Driving around the canyon there are endless scenic views you can stop at to take in the beauty before you. Hiking and backpacking are very popular all around the canyon. There are dozens of trails you can embark on and backpackers get the real inside view of the canyon. Many choose to camp overnight inside the canyon. Take a journey through the inside of the canyon on a whitewater raft trip down the Colorado river. Spend anywhere from 3 to 21 days on these whitewater trips for a total experience you won't soon forget. Another exciting way to see the canyon is by taking a mule trip. Spend a couple hours, half-day or overnight riding mules throughout the canyon for an unforgettable journey. There are several different packages to choose from so you will get the ride you will enjoy the most. These do require advance booking so prepare ahead.
