Imperial Grand Canyon Air Tour in Grand Canyon, Arizona

Truly a photographer's dream coming true! Go further into the heart of the Grand Canyon with this awe-inspiring flight of the Eastern Gorge - all the way to Imperial Point! This tour shows you the renowned beauty of the North Canyon Tour combined with spectacular views of the Painted Desert and the mighty Colorado! This tour will surely leave you breathless, as the Eastern Canyon is known for its serene beauty.

The Imperial Air Tour takes guests from our private heliport at Grand Canyon National Park airport in Tusayan, AZ out over the eastern rim of Grand Canyon. . Fly over the ponderosa pines of Kaibab National Forest on a 45-minute helicopter excursion from the Grand Canyon South Rim. The views here are stunning as guests can easily see over a hundred miles of canyon. Visitors also see the Little Colorado Confluence where the travertine blue waters of this tributary merge with the dark green of the Colorado River. Guests then travel by Point Imperial (the highest spire in the Canyon), over the north rim, and then back through the canyon's central regions. Here, the geography becomes particularly dramatic while, amongst the the plateaus and mesas, the canyon becomes a full 11 miles across and a vertical mile deep.
