After purchasing your admission ticket, your aerial adventure begins by driving to the helicopter launch site at the Grand Canyon's West Rim, where you'll meet your crew and board a state-of-the-art, six-passenger A-Star jet helicopter. Soar high above the multi-hued landmark in your helicopter before descending 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) down from the rim into the canyon, where you can gain an intimate look at its diverse layers and striking colors. On the 12- to 15-minute flight, you'll also pass over Guano Point, Eagle Point, and the Skywalk?a transparent horseshoe-shaped bridge and tourist attraction that juts over the canyon.
Upgrade to the helicopter tour with landing, and swoop deep into the canyon for a chance to walk around the rock formations you admired from above. From your landing spot alongside the Colorado River, get an up-close look at the multi-layered interior of the Grand Canyon, from its dusky hues to striking irregularities.
To see the interior of the canyon as you gently float by, upgrade to a helicopter tour with a boat ride. After your riverside landing, board a pontoon for an open-air journey between the Grand Canyon's towering rock walls. On the leisurely 12- to 15-minute journey, relax and enjoy the vibrant colors of the canyon's formations as the light plays off the water.
At the end of both the landing and boat tour upgrade options, you will ascend above the Grand Canyon for one last look at the national landmark, a fitting end to your aerial adventure.
