Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours

Grand Canyon helicopter tours allow guests to peer out the window for a bird's eye view of the Grand Canyon. It is a visual feast without rival. More than a half-million visitors take a Grand Canyon helicopter tour each year. Most of these helicopter rides take off from either the Grand Canyon Airport in the village of Tusayan located just outside the South Rim, Las Vegas, Nevada or Sedona, Arizona.

Grand Canyon helicopter tours have become increasingly popular and affordable. Not only do visitors get to fly over and through the canyon walls, but select helicopter trips also touch down at the bottom for a picnic lunch. Helicopter tours are an easy and rewarding way to see and experience the Grand Canyon and require only 1/2 - 1 day of time and can be under $200 per person. Grand Canyon helicopter tour companies upgrade and maintain their fleet often for first-class comfort, safety, passenger protection as well as environmental protection, while tour narration can be offered in up to seven different languages. Additional tours such as the Grand Canyon Skywalk are often part of popular helicopter tour packages.

How to Choose Which Helicopter Tour to Take

No matter which Grand Canyon helicopter tour your choose, it will be fantastic! Seeing more attractions such as Hoover Dam, Grand Canyon Skywalk, or having a touch down picnic at the bottom of the canyon are certainly exciting, and the more you can see the better. But budget is a factor. Pick whichever tour fits within a price range that you are comfortable with. If money isn't an issue, go big! See it all! The longer the experience and flight the better, because a flight into the Grand Canyon truly is an experience of a lifetime. If you've got the nervous jitters about being in a helicopter, the pilots are very helpful. Not only can they explain security measures and protocol in pre-flight to help you get a better idea of the experience, and many pilots allow you sit in the helicopter prior to launch to work out some of those pre-flight nerves. It is truly an exhilarating experience that is arguable the best way to see the Grand Canyon.

(TIP: If you feel comfortable, now is a great time to go on a Grand Canyon helicopter tour as seating is limited to better protect guests from the spread of Covid-19.)
