Depart from our terminal located in Grand Canyon Village, just a short distance from the rim, for an exhilarating 25 to 30-minute aerial helicopter flight. The North Canyon Tour flies sightseers over the Kaibab National Forest and across the deepest and widest part of the Grand Canyon. The central region of Grand Canyon – where the geography is at its most diverse – has a width of nearly 11 miles across and nearly a mile deep. The flight employs a loop so that guests seated on either side of the aircraft can take postcard ready pictures without needing to shoot across the cabin. Enjoy breathtaking views through the oversized windows as you fly over the mighty Colorado River towards the canyon’s North Rim. See rock formations like the Tower of Ra and Vishnu Schist as you fly back through the Dragon Corridor before landing at the helipad.

- Not sure what to wear? Layered clothing is recommended through the months of March to September, and winter clothing should be worn from October to mid-March.
