This exclusive Maverick Helicopters Canyon Spirit Grand Canyon tour departs from Grand Canyon National Park Airport located at the picturesque South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Here you will board your luxurious ECO-Star jet helicopter which then takes you into the Grand Canyon itself and over scenic sections of the massive 1.6 million acre Ponderosa pine forest.
On your tour you will experience truly some of the most spectacular views in the entire Grand Canyon. Upon your helicopter reaching the very edge of the Grand Canyon, the ruggedly beautiful South Rim gently drops away beneath you as the breathtaking North Rim and eastern end of the Grand Canyon slowly appear on the horizon.
In the far distance, you may catch a glimpse of the colorful Painted Desert, named El Desierto Pintado by Spanish Colonialists and originally home of the ancient Navajo and Hopi Indian Tribes, and the Desert View Watchtower built by the Hopi Indians. Your Grand Canyon helicopter sightseeing adventure continues as your helicopter follows the mighty Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River.
You will see views of Marble Canyon which marks the beginning of the Grand Canyon at its most western point, and Point Imperial, at just over 8,800 feet in elevation is one of the most popular spots on the North Rim. As you fly through the Canyon your ECO-Star gently ascends above the mighty North Rim to experience panoramic eagle’s-eye views, and then turning southward through the widest and deepest part of the Grand Canyon, the stunning Dragon Corridor.
As your ECO-Star crosses back over the Colorado River, you will again fly over the South Rim and the Kaibab National Forest gently landing you back at Grand Canyon National Park Airport. This premier Grand Canyon South Rim helicopter tour will provide memories of a lifetime.
