Even the most jaded of adventurers are humbled by the magnificence of the Grand Canyon, with it massive and seemingly neverending gorges, ridges, and rock formations. In fact, the Grand Canyon has close to 5 million visitors each year, with more and more coming all the time. Getting to the top to enjoy the view is, in and of itself, an actvitiy that could take anyone hours to accomplish. But many fail to realizing that taking in the beauty of the Grand Canyon is a feat that can be easily done while doing a plethora of other fun activities.
Want to know what else you can do at the Grand Canyon? Read on to find out:

Hiking One of the best ways to take in the sights of the Grand Canyon is by hiking down from the top of the canyon to the bottom. While the Grand Canyon is indeed expansive, it’s only 10 miles from width to width. This makes hiking — particularly downhill — a great activity to engage in. Some of the best trails to check out for hiking inclue the Bright Angel or Rim trails on the South Rim.

White Water Rafting Trips
White water rafting trips enable visitors to see the Grand Canyon from an entirely unique and new viewpoint. Additionally there are many river rafting trips for you to partake in. If you’re not into hardcore whitewater rafting, instead consider a day trip that offers smooth-water journeys between Glen Canyon Dam and Lees Ferry, located in the northeastern section of the canyon.
However, if you are looking to have a more turbulent and adventurous trip, seek out a company that will take you to the westernmost part of the canyon, between Diamond Creek and Lake Mead; this is where the water is rougher.

So what are you waiting for? Slap on that sunscreen and get ready to have the adventure of a lifetime! Read more articles like this.
