Grand Canyon West Opens With Safety Our First Priority

Together we are finding our way to our new normal. A balancing act between then and now to the place where we can safely explore again outside of our homes. You’ve done your part to stay indoors and now it’s time to break free and emerge to the great outdoors where breathtaking views and wide open spaces beckon.

The Hualapai Tribe has done their part, too, and as promised Grand Canyon West is welcoming visitors who are ready to explore back to the west rim. Awe-inspiring views won’t be the only thing that greets you starting June 1, 2020.

Health and cleanliness standards and protocols have been enhanced to provide the most safe and secure environment possible for you, your family and our team members. From noninvasive temperature checks to physical distancing to protective equipment, Grand Canyon West is prepared to provide a safe environment for everyone. Read the complete Reopening Guidelines for all of the details. 

When you arrive you’ll find a reduction to occupancy. Please be prepared for reduced seating and viewing capacities to allow for a minimum of 6 feet between each group or party of guests. Rest assured we have plenty of room for you to roam. Masks are not required for those guests who have been fully vaccinated, per the CDC guidelines in May 2021.

What’s more, Grand Canyon West is opening in phases. The first to open was the world-famous Skywalk, Eagle Point, and Guano Point on June 1, 2020. Hualapai River Runners whitewater rafting tours and rentals relaunched on June 8, 2020. The Cabins at Hualapai Ranch reopened on JUly 17, 2020. Reopening dates for Hualapai Ranch, the zipline, and Sky View Restaurant will be announced at a later date.
