What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon South Rim Air and Land Tour from Salt Lake City

The Navajo prop plane has enlarged windows and extra leg room

Your aerial adventure to Grand Canyon National Park starts at Ogden-Hinckley Airport, where you’ll take off aboard a 5-passenger fixed-wing aircraft whose windows offer bird’s-eye views of the scenery below. Listen to onboard commentary about the geological features of sights like Bryce Canyon National Park, famous for its hoodoos, limestone spires that jut up dramatically from the weather-beaten landscape.

As you cross into Arizona, enjoy views of the Grand Canyon from the plane before landing at the airport for your South Rim tour. With your guide, begin your 4-hour walk along the Rim Trail, stopping to admire panoramic views and snap photos while checking out attractions like Pipe Creek Vista, Maricopa Point and Hermit’s Rest, a National Historic Landmark that dates back to 1914. (Note: the first portion of the trail to Maricopa Point is paved and mostly accessible by wheelchair, but there are unpaved stretches between Maricopa and Hermit’s Rest that are narrow and near the canyon edge.)

When you reach Yavapai Point, you’ll be wowed by a clear view in both directions of the gorge from Yavapai Observation Station, including the Colorado River and Phantom Ranch. Learn about the local wildlife and other natural features of the canyon, one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, before heading back to the airport for your return flight to Salt Lake City.
