Grand Canyon Air Tour

Rim to Rim

45 min, air-only

Please call for rates and availability

The most unique way to see the Grand Canyon is on a Westwind flight. Lift off from the Grand Canyon airport and soar like an eagle toward the widest and deepest part of one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. As we cross the rim into the canyon the world drops away below and the majesty of the Canyon stretches ahead.  Fly along specially designated routes allowed only to a privileged few. The elevation provides spectacular views of the Desert View Watchtower, with the Painted Desert and Navajo Reservation to the east. Circle the unique confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado Rivers and possibly see white water rafters on their journey. You will have up-close views of the North Rim areas of the Kaibab Plateau and Kaibab National Forest and some of the oldest exposed geology in the world before winding our way back to the Grand Canyon Airport to conclude the tour.

Departing from the Grand Canyon airport you will begin your flight with incredible views of the widest and deepest part of the Canyon. As you soar over the rim and the ground drops away below, the majestic expanse of the Canyon unfolds around you. Around the confluence of the Little Colorado and Colorado rivers you veer right over the vast Navajo Reservation on a direct flight to Monument Valley. On the Arizona/Utah border, the unique spires, buttes and mesas of Monument Valley are the focus of your aerial tour around these natural monuments set down in a vast, flat desert. Next you will continue toward Page, Arizona. Past Navajo Mountain, circle Rainbow Bridge, over the shimmering turquoise waters of Lake Powell and the Glen Canyon Dam. From the dam you will follow Marble Canyon back across the Grand Canyon before landing at the Grand Canyon Airport.
