Get a bird's-eye view of one of the world's great natural wonders on this adventure through the skies above the Grand Canyon. Watch as your pilots point out landmarks such as the 11-mile (17-km) Dragon Corridor, and admire the stunning rock formations that were sculpted over millions of years.

Begin your adventure at Grand Canyon National Park Airport, where you and a small group take off in a helicopter bound for the 15th-oldest national park in the United States. Fly through the "Dragon Corridor" – the deepest portion of the canyon – and listen as the pilot describes the geographical difference between the North and South Rim.

As you soar over the incredibly deep and colorful rock formations of the canyon's 1.2-million-acre (490,000-ha) expanse, immerse yourself in the breathtaking views, shaped by millennia of wind and water erosion and best captured from an aerial view.

Circle back over the mighty Colorado River and discover the scenic views available from both sides of the helicopter. Your 30-minute loop tour closes with an exploration of majestic landmarks such as the Tower of Ra and the Vishnu Schist.

4.0/5 Jan 19, 2018

This was a great helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon. We saw things that you obviously can't see just standing on the rim! There were truly indescribable vistas that we enjoyed. Wearing the headsets, you listen to music that makes the experience more emotional and a recorded narration that makes the experience more meaningful. The large fishbowl type windows allowed you to see everything on your side of the helicopter. This allowed me to take pictures and videos with ease. It would have been so much better if we were able to go below the rim and fly through the Dragon Corridor like they did in the movie "Lost Secrets of the Grand Canyon," but the pilot explained that his company was not allowed to go below the rim. I think he said that some other companies based out of Las Vegas are allowed to go below the rim but there can't be too many helicopters there at once for safety reasons.
