Our Papillon Helicopter and Jeep Excursion of the Grand Canyon is a breathtaking experience that provides spectacular aerial and ground views of the splendor and majesty of the Grand Canyon. The tour begins aboard a helicopter which flies you over the Kaibab National Forest, Southern and Northern Rims of the Canyon and along the colorful and textured walls. The play of light in the canyon is amazing, and plenty of photographic opportunities abound. The return flight takes you through the Dragon Corridor where the thrill of this natural wonder will delight you. Upon arriving back at our base, you will start a guided Jeep tour by entering Grand Canyon National Park. The first stop is a beautiful overlook of the O'Neil Butte where guests are encouraged to enjoy the splendor of the canyon. This short stop is ideal for photographs. The next stop is Grandview Point, which allows guests to enjoy the color and texture of these ancient cliffs and the prehistoric rocks. The Jeep then continues along the canyon to Yavapai Point for more incredible views. The return trip drops you at the IMAX theater where complimentary tickets are available for your enjoyment. Guests are reminded to arrive for their tour 30 minutes before it starts.
