Behold the majesty of the indescribable beauty created by the Colorado River over the thousands of years as it cut into the raw red rock. This bird’s-eye tour is the ultimate Grand Canyon experience.
Ascend high in the sky by the South Rim over the beautiful Kaibab National forest, home to the world's largest Ponderosa pines, which have been known to grow to heights beyond 70 metres. As the helicopter reaches the edge of the canyon itself, the rim gently drops away as the North Rim and the eastern edge come into view, offering a panorama of stunning contrasts.
Follow the Colorado River upstream while enjoying dreamlike views in the distance of the Painted Desert – so called because of the layers of different rock types that have created multi-coloured horizontal bands across the ridges – and the Desert View Watchtower, one of the earliest tourist facilities in the area.
See the pale blue waters of the Little Colorado swirl into the emerald green waters of the Colorado River when they meet at the confluence. Enjoy magnificent views of Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as the helicopter glides through the canyon and climbs above the North Rim. Admire the breathtaking beauty and mystique of Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest portion of the Grand Canyon.
