Grand Canyon Deals: 7 Reasons for Buying a South Rim Helicopter Tour

The majority of Grand Canyon tours let you sample the National Park. If you are the type of person who wants to see as much of the South Rim as possible in a day, you’ve got buckle up and get airborne. To get you off the ground, here are seven reasons why riding a helicopter gets the job done.

1. It’s the fastest way to see the National Park. All helicopter flight plans follow this route: South Rim, the Gorge, North Rim, and back to Grand Canyon Airport. During this 30-to-40 minute flight, you’ll see:

-The Kaibab Plateau
-The Colorado River & Little Colorado River
-The Dragoon Corridor
-Grand Canyon Village
-Phantom Ranch
-Bright Angel Trail
-The San Francisco Peaks (Humphrey’s Peak is the highest in Arizona)

This is only a smidgen of what you fly over.

2. It’s the best way to enjoy a South Rim sunrise and/or sunset. This is the most incredible thing you can see at the Park. I strongly suggest you reserve your seats in advance, especially during summer when seats sell out fast. Because of their popularity, these flights are labeled “premium” and cost more than others.

3. It’s safe. Of the three helicopter companies that fly the South Rim, there’s never been an accident. Further, a lot of companies are flying the robust EcoStar 130, a state-of-the-art chopper that’s been designed from nose to tail for sightseeing.

4. It’s inexpensive. Trips start out around $ 130 per person. Upgrading to an EcoStar 130 (luxury sightseeing helicopter) will run you around $ 160. Book online to get the lowest price. Prices and availability are subject to change.

5. The aerial views here are some of the best in the U.S. Sitting at about 7,000 feet in elevation, the rim is pancake-flat and covered with pine forest. To get clear views, you have to get to the rim’s edge. Flying, its all sky above and Canyon below.

6. Pilots make the best guides. These guys fly the Canyon daily and know it like the back of their hands. Helicopters come with two-way communication systems and personal headsets that allow you to talk to your pilot and fellow passengers.

7. It’s thrilling. Helicopters take off from Grand Canyon Airport at 200 miles per hour then head through the Dragoon Corridor until turning back at the North Rim. Highly maneuverable, these aircraft descend, ascend, and turn with ease. Nothing comes close to the thrill of hovering in the Dragoon Corridor, the widest, deepest part of the canyon.

Helicopter tours average more than 30 minutes in the air and depart frequently from the airport in Tusayan, located just outside the Park’s main entrance. No helicopters fly from the South Rim to the West Rim. Nor are their direct helicopter flights from Las Vegas to the South Rim. To get here from Vegas, you must book an airplane or bus tour and transfer to a helicopter.

The Grand Canyon is an overwhelming experience. It’s 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and covers up 1,900 plus square miles. My suggestion is to view the Park by Grand Canyon helicopter and then than explore it by foot, possibly going beneath the rim on one of the easy access trails. This combination of air and ground will make sure that you see as much of the Canyon as you can in a limited amount of time.

Queen Helene was another one who was just a complete natural as Wonder Woman, and I’m not just saying that because she stood an inch or two tallre than me (and in flats, yet). Like Valerie Perez, she has the kind of confidence and charisma that Lynda Carter had to make the role work.

Day Trips from Las Vegas: A Guide to the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon is located in the United States of America in the State of Arizona and is a steep-sided gorge carved by the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon is 277miles long and ranges in width from 4 to 18miles and has a depth of more than a mile. The Grand Canyon is within the Grand Canyon National Park and is one of the world’s top natural attractions, reeling in a whooping five million visitors per year.

 

You can do many things at the Grand Canyon, even if you have just a few hours to explore it. You have to get out there to really be able to say you have seen the Grand Canyon. For starters and the casual sightseeing, head for the South Rim which is home to several historical buildings like the Kolb Studio, the Desert View Watchtower and the Grand Canyon Railway Depot. The Grand Canyon Skywalk is also another fantastic option for those who want to make the most out of their visit. The horse-shaped glass walkway stands at 1,200m in height above the floor of the canyon and allows you a great view into the main canyon.

 

Take a trip down to the floor of the valley by foot, mule back or by raft from upriver or take a hike throughout the Grand Canyon, a great way to see the park. Most visitors begin and end their hikes at the south rim. Long hikes await you with changes in elevation and terrain so be prepared and if you are really unsure but still want to hike nonetheless, get a professional guide to go with you to make sure your trip is a memorable one, instead of you hiking with the thought in your head swearing never to do this again.

 

For another way to see the Grand Canyon (Without much effort), Go on a Helicopter flight specially for tourists that flies over the Grand Canyon and gives you a remarkable birds eye view of this wonder. The Coconino Canyon Train is also another option for those who want a more laid-back leisurely view of the Canyon. A 90 minute train ride, it originates at the old Grand Canyon Depot and travels 24 miles throughout the landscapes of the canyon.

 

If you get hungry on your trip to the Grand Canyon, fret not for there are quite a few places to eat at from Bright Angel Restaurant and El Tovar Hotel Dining Room (think fine dining) on the South Rim and Café on the Rim and Coffee Saloon located on the North Rim.

The sandy-brown current rushed along in great waves, a hundred andfifty feet wide, weltering and murmuring nervously as itran, as if in the greatest haste to get on. My wish to seea desert stream-bed running full of water had been quicklygranted, and I gazed in silent wonder at the novel sight—a flooded river in a desert! Being in advance of my companions, it was my dutyto ascertain whether the loaded wagons could get acrossthat afternoon or not. I rode out into the boiling caldronof storm-water—dreading quicksands, and prepared foreventualities. Very soon I found that in mid-stream thewater was at least four feet deep, and very swift. Thismeant that for loaded wagons, and a pair of wild mules forleaders, it would not be wise to attempt to cross thatafternoon. The afternoon being well advanced—for our
