Explore the Grand Canyon on the ground and from the air!

Departing from your hotel in Phoenix, Scottsdale or Tempe, you will cross the Sonoran Desert, home to the region's typical saguaro cactus, and follow the famous Route 66 before reaching Grand Canyon National Park.

Accompanied by your guide, you'll set off on a 3-hour tour of the park and discover the breathtaking landscapes of the South Rim, the South Plateau of the Grand Canyon. Your expert guide will show you the most beautiful nooks and crannies among the rock formations that stretch over 30km in width. You'll learn more about the history of the American Southwest and its early inhabitants, and take the opportunity to visit the historic El Tovar Lodge and Hopi House.

To make this experience unforgettable, you can choose to start the day with a helicopter flight over the park. For 45 minutes, you'll have the chance to observe over 145 kilometres of nature from the air and enjoy a panoramic view of this iconic place. During your ride, you'll also pass over Marble Canyon, Point Imperial, the Little Colorado River and Dragon Corridor!

At the end of the day, your comfortable shuttle will drop you off outside your hotel.
