The multiperspective adventure begins with a comfortable journey aboard a Detours executive-style van through the Sonoran Desert filled with native saguaro cactus. You will witness the changing landscape as you head north from classic desert beauty to grasslands to Ponderosa pine forests.
Your journey includes a breathtaking helicopter flight for a 45-minute aerial tour over the Grand Canyon. Your flight will include views of the Kaibab National Forest, the North Rim, and eastern end of the canyon. You will follow the Colorado River upstream to where it merges with the Little Colorado River, enjoying views of the Painted Desert and Desert View Watchtower in the distance. See Marble Canyon and Point Imperial as you climb above the North Rim, head south through the Dragon Corridor (the deepest, widest point in the canyon), and then leave the Grand Canyon, flying over the South Rim back to the airport.
Next, enter Grand Canyon National Park to enjoy awe-inspiring vistas and multiple panoramic overlooks that can only be accessed by foot. Your time within Grand Canyon National Park offers opportunities to walk along the rim, shop, or just take in the splendor of nature.
Then, board the Detours shuttle for the conclusion of your ground tour. Pick-up is included from select Scottsdale and Phoenix area hotels.
