Majestic Helicopter Tour
The Majestic Helicopter Tour features a helicopter tour of the Grand Canyon's South and North near Grandview Point, with an amazing view of the rocky terrain, plant life and wildlife in every direction. The Grand Canyon features several points of interest that are almost as large and never-ending as the canyon itself, including the Colorado River, several ancient dwellings and the Dragon Corridor.
Starting off, our tour will take you and your family across the widest and deepest part of the gorge 5,000 feet above the heart of the Grand Canyon along the Colorado River. The helicopter will then take you to the higher grounds of the North Rim which features a dense forest. Open only seasonally, the North Rim supports plant and animal life not available in the South Rim, including birch, aspen, and oak trees, as well as the rare Kaibab squirrel.
After circling a few times, the helicopter will fly you back to the Grand Canyon South Rim via the Dragon Corridor. This is one of the Grand Canyon's most photogenic spots. Seeing the best of Grand Canyon on this tour is easy in the deluxe Majestic helicopter. This Eco Star helicopter features oversized windows that allow you to experience a 180-degree view of the canyon below. Other features of the helicopter include quiet ride technology as well as microphone headsets that allow you to listen to the narration as well as talk to other passengers.
