I-17 courtesy of Detour Grand Canyon Tours
. The tour travels through the entire scenic area of uptown Sedona and the full length of
Oak Creek Canyon. You will have a chance to photograph the famous red rock formations, stretch your legs and often pick up lunch from a Sedona
restaurant to take as a picnic to the Grand Canyon.
The tour's Grand Canyon
experience offers the
best views from your helicopter and the canyon rim. Once you arrive at the South Rim of the canyon it's time to board a luxurious state-of-the-art ECO-Star
helicopter for a 45-minute flight over the Grand Canyon. Your aerial adventure begins with a view of the North Rim as you fly towards the eastern end of the
canyon following the Colorado River. The Painted Desert looms just off in the distance. Experience amazing bird's-eye views as you head south through the
Dragon Corridor, which is the widest and deepest part of the Grand Canyon. Following your helicopter flight, you will reunite with your Detours guide and
explore the famous 30-mile section of road that winds east along the rim of the canyon, showcasing some of the best rim views and history along the way.

Navajo trading post.
