Your time is short, but you know exactly how you want to see Grand Canyon National Park: by helicopter and on the rim. This air/ground adventure starts at Grand Canyon National Park Airport (GCN) in Tusayan/Grand Canyon Village South. After settling into your touring helicopter’s bucket-type seats and lifting off, you’ll cross the Canyon’s rim and soar over the widest and deepest part of the gorge, peering 5,000 feet down to the sculptor of the Canyon – the Colorado River. The Grand Canyon’s higher, more densely forested North Rim features a significantly different atmosphere than the drier South Rim and is home to species of plants and animals not found anywhere else in the Canyon. After a short pass over the most remote area of Grand Canyon Park, it’s time to head back to the South Rim via the Dragon Corridor. Upon completion of your Grand Canyon helicopter flight, take the short drive to the IMAX Theater in Tusayan to begin your Grand Canyon Ground Tour with world-renowned Pink Jeep Tours! Grandview Point, former site of one of the National Park’s first hotels and a defunct mining operation, is one of the park’s more remote and most beautiful viewpoints. In the foreground, Horseshoe Mesa is one of the more unusual rock formations in the park. You can even see all the way down to the Colorado River from here. At Yavapai Point, you’ll take in one of the best views of the Grand Canyon. Time permitting you might visit Yavapai Point Museum, a registered National Historic Landmark, or stroll the award-winning “Trail of Time,” where the complex geology of the Grand Canyon is laid out in logical fashion along an easy, paved pathway. At the end of your tour, you’ll return to the IMAX Theatre where your vehicle is parked.
