Experience the majestic views of the Grand Canyon by helicopter!
Hop onboard a state-of-the-art helicopter built especially for sightseeing and discover the most fantastic views the Grand Canyon has to offer on this 40–50-minute aerial sightseeing adventure.
Our guide to Grand Kingdom Helicopter Tour
Meet at the Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport (GCN) in Tusayan/Grand Canyon Village South. Settle into a comfortable state-of-the-art helicopter, and off you go on an adventure of a lifetime.
Soar across the canyon rim and watch as the bottom of the canyon seemingly drops out from under your feet. You won’t believe your eyes as they gaze deep into the very core of the canyon over 5,000 feet down to the dramatic confluence of the Little Colorado River.
Flypast Imperial Point - a rugged spire standing alone near the North Rim of the Canyon. Flying at the same altitude as the North Rim, you may feel you can reach out and touch the canyon walls. It's an up-close and personal perspective only a helicopter can provide! The North Rim is a vastly different climate and supports plant and animal life not present at the drier South Rim.
As you head back to the Grand Canyon South Rim, the stunning views continue as you fly via the Dragon Corridor, another of the Grand Canyon's most picturesque sections.
If you want the most scenic views from the most impressive heights, this Grand Kingdom helicopter tour is an experience not to be missed!
