5 Unique Ways to Experience Under Canvas Grand Canyon

Whether you’ve visited Grand Canyon National Park before, or you’re experiencing it for the first time, its grandeur and spectacular views are always inspiring. Carved out by the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon is a stunning sight to see that offers countless experiences you won’t forget! Located just 25 minutes from the South Rim entrance of Grand Canyon National Park, Under Canvas Grand Canyon is the perfect place to stay while you explore one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Make the most of your trip by trying these five unique ways to experience the Grand Canyon.


The night sky of Grand Canyon National Park is exceptionally dark, making it a fantastic place for stargazing. Because of the low light pollution and its classification as an International Dark Sky Park, the stargazing opportunities around the park are considered some of the best in the world. Find an unobstructed spot to see the Milky Way Galaxy on the South Rim, or enjoy the stars from your upscale Stargazer tent at Under Canvas Grand Canyon. Either way, you’re sure to be amazed.

A Grand Canyon Sunset

Sunset at the Grand Canyon is one of the world’s most magnificent vistas. Whether you want to venture off the beaten path to the Canyon’s edge or take in the colors from Hopi Point on the South Rim, the sunset is unlike any you’ve seen. The fading sun combined with the dark red and gold cliffs turns the sky into a kaleidoscope of colors that you won’t want to miss! If you don’t have time to make it into the park before dusk, Under Canvas Grand Canyon offers beautiful sunset views right outside your tent.

Biking Around the Rim

A trip to Grand Canyon National Park wouldn’t be complete without a bike ride along the canyon’s rim. Located along the South Rim, Scenic Hermit Road follows the canyon rim for 7 miles and is one of the best places in the park for cycling. While en-route, take in unparalleled views of the canyon’s cliffs and local wildlife—or stop and take in the canyon views whenever the mood strikes.

Fireside S’mores

Explore Arizona’s vast landscape by day, and enjoy your safari-inspired accommodations by night—which include complimentary s’mores!
