The Canyon Spirit is a Grand Canyon helicopter tour that departs from the South Rim of the Grand Canyon taking you over the beautiful Kaibab National Forest, home to the world’s largest ponderosa pine forest. Upon reaching the edge of the canyon, the South Rim gently drops away as the North Rim and eastern end of the canyon come into view – one of the most spectacular views in the entire canyon.
In the distance, it is possible to see the Painted Desert and the Desert View Watchtower designed by the Hopi Indians. Your journey continues as you follow the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River.
View Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as you fly through the canyon and climb above the North Rim. Experience fabulous bird’s-eye views once on the North Rim, and then head south through the Dragon Corridor, the widest and deepest part of the canyon.
As you cross over the Colorado River, you’ll fly over the South Rim and the Kaibab National Forest landing back at the Grand Canyon Airport. This Grand Canyon South Rim tour will provide you with memories of a lifetime.
