What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon North Rim Bar 10 Deluxe Air and Ground Tour

Grand Canyon North Rim

Soar over Lake Mead and Hoover Dam en route to one of the Seven Wonders of The World - the Grand Canyon. Fly on an 19-seat air-conditioned fixed wing plane through to the inner gorge where you'll land at a peaceful and secluded airport on the rim of the Canyon.

You'll head to the edge of the inner gorge of the North Rim. Learn about the hundreds of millions of years of geological erosion that have exposed this 2650-foot-deep rip in the earth. Hear tales of the Anasazi Indians who inhabited this area thousands of years ago as you travel to the Canyon edge.

There's plenty of time at the Canyon to view and photograph remarkable overlooks, rugged lava flows, the Colorado River and the magnificent Grand Canyon itself. Hear about the colorful history of ranchers, settlers and outlaws who inhabited and hid out in this unforgiving land as you enjoy an optional informative 30-minute hike around the canyon's rim. You also have the option to purchase a 1.5-hour Polaris 330 ATV ride from the ranch to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (approximately 45 minutes in each direction).

All that fresh air and natural wilderness will leave you hungry - but not for long. While you're having fun, Mom will be cookin' up the finest western style lunch, ready for your return to the Ranch where you'll enjoy a hearty meal. Your afternoon in the wild west is concluded with your flight back to Las Vegas and bus transport back to your hotel.

This tour is seasonal and operates from April to November

So glad we decided on this excursion! Couldn't have been better. Awesome day in terms of weather and views, awesome guides. Pack some trail mix and enjoy a wonderful experience. Great photo opportunities. Helmets provided. (That was one of my questions while planning). The only thing I would add, for the women in the group...wear your sports bras! Haha

This was probably our favourite tour of the holiday. We were picked up EARLY (5.30am) and taken to the airport where, even though we waited for an hour, we were excited to board a little Cessna plane for a turbulent ride to Big 10 Ranch. There were only 7 people on our tour, which made this even better as it was a very friendly and intimate group - and it turned out we were the only people at the North Rim at all! Amazing!

Here, we met up with our wonderful host for the day (though I forget his name, apologies!). He set us up with orientation for the ATVs before letting us test our manoeuvrability on them; once everyone was happy we were on our way. Riding the quad bikes on the dirt tracks and off road trails was an incredible experience, being surrounded by stunning scenery. Our host stopped regularly to make sure we were all keeping up ok (only 4 of us were biking, the rest were in a jeep with him), and pointing out interesting things in the distance, explaining the formation of the Canyon and history of people who lived there.

Coming over a slight hill and getting the full view of the Canyon and river within was a mesmerising experience, words cannot do it justice. We were allowed a huge amount of time to take photos, learn some more history, go on small hikes to look at fauna and more viewpoints and seeing another dry canyon nearby.

On the way back, we were allowed to open up the ATVs a bit more (we were getting up to around 38mph on open roads, averaging about 22 on the much rockier trails) as we'd demonstrated we weren't clowns by following instructions on the way there. This was really appreciated by us all and was a great experience.

After lunch at the ranch, we saw some wildlife, handled some snakes, and then took the jeep back to the "international" airport (a landing strip in a field) for the Cessna ride back, which gave us stunning aerial views of the Canyon as well.

All in all, I'd rate this higher than 5* - simply amazing.
