The 25- or 45-minute flight portion of the tour begins at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport where you'll meet your pilot.
Buckle up in a state-of-the-art ECO-Star helicopter and lift off, first flying over the 1.6-million acre Kaibab National Forest, which borders both the north and south rims of the Grand Canyon. As the helicopter glides over the canyon, take in the stunning aerial view. The wide-open location of the flight provides an amazing view of this incredible natural wonder. Don’t forget a camera.
Back at the airport, hop in an open-air Jeep for a ground adventure. The tour guide will drive to some incredibly scenic spots for the view of a lifetime – Moran Point, Pipe Creek Vista and Duck Rock, with a final stop at stunning Grandview Point, the southernmost lookout location at the south rim of the Grand Canyon. If on a sunset tour, watch the walls of the canyon change color as the sun settles in the sky.
Finally, return to the National Geographic Visitor Center’s IMAX Theater to watch Grand Canyon: The Movie.
