Grand Canyon South Rim by Helicopter

Discover the South Rim, the most beautiful section of the Grand Canyon, with this helicopter ride. You'll enjoy unbeatable views of this unique natural phenomenon.

Itinerary

We offer two different ways to take the tour, one lasting 25 minutes and the other 45 minutes.

25-minute tour

Our helicopter tour of the South Rim begins flying over the Kaibab National Forest, an area filled with every imaginable species of tree, contrasting sharply with the arid, desert landscape the Grand Canyon is known for.

The tour continues to what is known as the Dragon Corridor, the widest and steepest section of the canyon. Then the route continues northwards, following the course of the Colorado River until we reach an unbeatable view of the Tower of Ra and Vishnu Schist, from where we'll return to our departure point.

45-minute tour

First, we'll pass alongside the Kaibab National Forest, an area packed with bull pines and American pines, before heading to the Grand Canyon, following the course of the Colorado River, enjoying the views all the way. Here you'll have an incredible view of the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower.

Then we'll head to the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers, where the stunning turquoise blues of the water contrast with the surrounding orange tones. Then finally we'll fly over the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the Grand Canyon.

We'll cross the River Colorado at its fastest flowing point and, finally, return to the departure point.
