From South Rim: Grand Canyon Spirit Helicopter Tour

1. From South Rim: Grand Canyon Spirit Helicopter Tour

Head to Grand Canyon Airport at Tusayan, Arizona for a fantastic 45-minute helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon.

Climb above the North Rim, and experience the fabulous bird's-eye views before heading through the Dragon Corridor, the canyon's widest and deepest part. See in the distance the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower, designed by the Hopi Native Americans. Your journey then follows the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River, back over the Kaibab National Forest, and on to Tusayan.

Our flight over the Grand Canyon was absolutely perfect!!! From the beginning of getting the tickets to getting off the plane after the flight was wonderful! All of the staff were very professional and nice! The flight topped off our Grand Canyon visit. The only thing is I wish their gift shop would have been open so I could have purchased a shirt say I fly with their company over the Grand Canyon. I highly recommend this flight! Thanks very much!
