World's Coolest Helicopter Rides

Grand Canyon, AZ
peered into the Grand Canyon from the South Rim, you’ve traipsed down its
vertiginous sides on a mule, you’ve even gingerly ventured out onto the
cantilevered glass Grand Canyon Skywalk. But you haven’t truly appreciated “one
of the great sights which every American should see” (as Theodore Roosevelt put
it) until you’ve buzzed over in a helicopter.
Ride: A Grand
Kingdom tour from the South Rim with Papillon
Helicopter Tours takes in the forested North Rim, the dramatic Dragon
Corridor, and the Little Colorado Confluence—regarded as a sacred place by the
per person for 45–50 minutes.
