When exploring the Grand Canyon for the first time, you’ll want to come at it from all angles. An overhead view lets you step back and be awed by its awesome scale, while trekking it by car and foot really puts you at one with the near-boundless surroundings. Here, you get a bit of everything. This signature Grand Canyon flight offers cloud-level views before setting down on the south rim for a jeep tour and picnic. Your Grand Canyon flight and jeep tour includes:
- 20- to 30-minute flight over the Canyon south rim, offering exclusive views not offered on most tours
- A landing and jeep tour into the Grand Canyon National Park
- Lunch on the rim
Flight departs from Deer Valley Airport in North Phoenix and offers amazing photo opportunities of desert landscapes and forests
The hour-long flight from Phoenix is almost as awe-inspiring as the Canyon itself. Along the way you’ll pass the Tonto National Forest, the Red Rock formations of Sedona, the San Francisco Peaks, the Painted Desert and the Navajo Indian Reservation. Once at the South Rim, you’ll be soaring 1,000 feet above, enjoying exclusive views of the deepest, widest section of the canyon—a spot not frequented by most flights! After that, you’ll touch ground and be transported via Jeep to the Grand Canyon National Park. There, a tour guide will direct you toward the best vantage points (there are many!) before you settle down by the rim and fuel up before the flight home.
