Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours

While on a visit to Arizona, don’t forget to view that huge gouge in the earth’s crust by going on any of the Grand Canyon helicopter tours. Helicopters not only fly forward, but they can come to a complete standstill in the air and then slowly rise or descend. So, the views you get of sedimentary layers of rock along the sides of the Grand Canyon is close-up and unique. Plus, your chopper can land on the valley floor or on the rim in locations that might take days to hike into. With surrounding glass and small seating capacity, you get an intimate tour with incredible views in a helicopter.

Cameras aren’t allowed, but you get a complimentary photograph of this structure.

Then, you can walk the Skywalk with confidence, knowing that the foundation of this glass bridge handles the weight of over 822 people and that they limit it to 120 walkers. Six- and seven-hour helicopter tours that include Skywalk are also available.
