The Grand Canyon, located in Grand Canyon National Park, is an incredible, inconceivable abyss, formed from layer upon layer of different rocks, easily distinguished by colour. Each layer contains clues to the past with its own fossil record. The formation of the canyon has yet to be conclusively determined, with experts unable to agree exactly how it came to exist as it is. The canyon is over a mile deep, ranges from 4 to 18 miles (6 to 30 kilometres) in width and is 277 miles (446 kilometres) long.

Most visitors to the Grand Canyon head to the South Rim - it is the easiest part of the canyon to access and home to Grand Canyon Village. The views from the South Rim are as spectacular as anywhere else at the canyon. For an even greater understanding of the awesome size of the Grand Canyon, flights are available that allow you to see far more than you can from the ground at the South Rim.
