A "Front-Row" seat to this Natural Wonder of the World! This thrilling 45 minute helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon gives you a birds eye view of the Kaibab Forest, Dragons Corridor and the mighty Colorado River!
On this helicopter tour you will depart from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and fly over the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, home to the world's largest ponderosa pine forest. Enjoy the spectacular view as you reach the edge of the canyon. The South Rim gently drops away as the North Rim and eastern end of the canyon come into view, an incredible sight not to be forgotten.

Your journey will then continue as you follow the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River. You will have a bird's eye view of the Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as you fly through the canyon and climb above the North Rim.
