Don't let the end of summer get your down–Xanterra South Rim L.L.C. is offering an “End of Summer Package” with savings of up to 44% to help you hold on to the last days of summer just a little longer.

Xanterra South Rim, operator of the lodges and other services in Grand Canyon National Park’s South Rim, are offering the package at Maswik Lodge and Yavapai Lodge from August 15th through September 10th this year. The package includes double-occupancy accommodations, breakfast for two at Maswik or Yavapai Lodge, a motorcoach tour for two and discounts of up to 20 percent at Xanterra gift shops.

“This is a terrific time to visit the Grand Canyon,” general manager of Xanterra Gordon Taylor said. “We experience a slight slowdown in visitation beginning in late August as families prepare for the new school year and the empty nesters stay home for the Labor Day weekend.”

With normal room rates of $170, the $165 summer package at Maswik Lodge is a steal. It not only features accommodations in a “Maswik North” room, but also breakfast for two, a Sunset or Hermits Rest tour in the morning or afternoon and a one-time gift shop discount good for 10 percent off purchases of $50-149.99 and 20 percent off purchases $150 and above.

You can also get a lot more bang for you buck at the Yavapai Lodge with the $150 package. It features accommodations in a “Yavapai East” room, breakfast for two, a Sunset or Hermits Rest tour in the morning or afternoon and a one-time gift shop discount good for 10 percent off purchases of $50-149.99 and 20 percent off purchases $150 and above.

To get this sizzling summer package, remember to use the promo code SUMMER  online at www.grandcanyonlodges.com or call toll-free at 1-888-297-2757 or 1-202-297-2757 from outside the U.S. Please remember rates do not include taxes and this package is not available Sept. 5 and 6, 2009.

If you’re looking to experience the park in other ways than on foot, Xanterra offers activities such as mule trips and motorcoach tours. 

You can also leave your car at home, and do your green part (for your wallet and the earth!) and hop on the Grand Canyon Railway as it makes its daily round trip from Williams, Arizona.
