North Grand Canyon Helicopter TourNorth Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

This Grand Canyon helicopter tour over the North Canyon sets off from the South Rim. Soar over the Grand Canyon National Park's most astonishing rock formations and sights, including some of the canyon's oldest and deepest regions.

While endless scenic viewpoints are scattered along the path lining the Grand Canyon South Rim, there is simply no better way to experience the expanse of this magnificent landmark than from the sky!

Here you'll find some of the most unique rock formations located within the canyon: Tower of Ra, Vishnu Schist, and Dragon Corridor. You can take professional-looking photos of the widest and deepest regions of the striped canyon walls and see the lush greenery of the Kaibab Forest from above. This region of the canyon displays some of the oldest exposed geology known to man - all visible from the oversized window of your helicopter.
