The Grand Canyon and northern Arizona are beautiful places to visit any time of year. But, Grand Canyon in Winter is nearly magical. Even if you have been to the Grand Canyon during other seasons, you haven’t really seen all its beauty until you have seen it when the cliffs and buttes are iced with snow.
The most beautiful time of day to see this spectacular view is just as the sun is setting.
The reds in the canyon seem like glowing embers, making the pure whiteness of the snow stand out even more against the sky. Bring those extra memory cards for your camera! There are some really beautiful photo opportunities this time of year.
If you want to enter this magical land for a tour, there are so many options. Some of the very best tours to see all of the beauty as you can squeeze in one trip is with a Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour. Here are some great tours to see the Grand Canyon in Winter…
