BOOK CANYON SPIRIT
There is no better way to see the Grand Canyon than from the air. On a clear day, you can see for miles in every direction. The colors of the rocks are even more vibrant when seen from above. And the scale of the canyon is truly mind-boggling. If you want to experience the ultimate Grand Canyon aerial adventure, there is no better option than a helicopter tour.
You'll be able to see more of the canyon in 45-minutes than you could on foot in a lifetime. And the experience is unlike anything else. Soar over the vast expanse of the canyon, and enjoy unparalleled views of some of the most iconic landscapes in America. A helicopter tour is an unforgettable experience, and one that should not be missed.
Canyon Spirit Features
There are few experiences more exhilarating than taking to the skies in a helicopter. And there are few places more worthy of such an adventure than the Grand Canyon. The South Rim of the canyon is home to some of the most iconic views in America, and a helicopter tour is the perfect way to take them all in. From your vantage point high above the ground, you’ll get panoramic views of Tower of Ra and Vishnu Schist, as well as an array of different landscapes, ranging from desert scrubland to dense forest.
Kaibab National Forest
The Kaibab National Forest is one of the largest national forests in the United States. Spanning 1.6 million acres, it is home to a diverse array of plant and animal life. A helicopter tour allows you to witness the beauty of this forest from a whole new perspective. You will soar over towering mountains and dense forests, getting a bird’s eye view of this natural wonderland.
Desert View Watchtower
The Desert View Watchtower is a 70-foot-tall stone structure located in the Grand Canyon National Park. The tower was built in 1932 and was designed to resemble an ancient Hopi Indian village. The nine-level structure offers stunning 360-degree views of the canyon and its surrounding plateaus.
