Helicopter Tour of The Grand Canyon
There are a variety of tour options and the complete experience depends on which route and company you choose (Maverick Helicopter and Papillon Tours are popular options). No matter what, it’s a thrilling ride. Helicopters in the Grand Canyon have permission to fly approximately 1,000 feet lower than airplanes, so you’ll get closer to landmarks like the South Rim, Dragon Corridor, Desert Point View and, of course, the Colorado River.
