Canyon Spirit Deluxe Helicopter Tour

Departing from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon, this deluxe helicopter flight will reveal stunning bird's-eye views of the North Rim and the eastern end of the Canyon - arguably the most spectacular part of this geological masterpiece.

Canyon Spirit is a Grand Canyon helicopter tour that departs from the South Rim, taking you over the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, home to the world's largest stand of ponderosa pines. Upon reaching the edge of the canyon, the South Rim drops away as the North Rim and eastern end of the canyon come into view, one of the most spectacular views in the entire canyon.

In the distance, it is possible to see the Painted Desert and Desert View Watchtower, designed by legendary architect Mary Jane Colter. Your journey continues as you follow the Colorado River upstream where dark green waters swirl into the pale blue waters of the Little Colorado River. View Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as you fly through the canyon and climb above the North Rim. Experience fabulous bird's-eye views once on the North Rim, and then head south through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the canyon.

As you cross over the Colorado River, you'll fly over the South Rim and Kaibab National Forest landing back at Grand Canyon Airport. This Grand Canyon South Rim tour will provide you with memories sure to last a lifetime.
