The Splendor of the Grand Canyon by Air, Land, and See

“Have you ever seen anything so full of splendor?” – Westworld on HBO

You’ll be echoing these same words as you look over the vast beauty that only the Grand Canyon can encompass. Maverick Helicopters Canyon Dream offers a full experience over the canyon and inside the park.


Start your journey with a smooth flight aboard a Beechcraft 1900D aircraft. You’ll breech the clouds as you travel from Nevada towards Arizona with spectacular views below. The roomy cabin allows you the opportunity to enjoy multiple views, even step up front with the pilots for an extraordinary sight out the cockpit windows.

Upon landing, you’ll be transported to the Maverick terminal where the adventure continues via one of our state-of-the-art ECO-star helicopters for a flight high above the Grand Canyon. Pass over Kaibab National Forest where juniper trees line the fields below in lush tones of green. Further into the canyon, you’ll marvel at the Tower of Ra and the Sheba and Solomon Temples. Pass over the mighty Colorado River where you’ll see the Crystal Rapids surging below.


Once you return from your flight you’ll be transported into Grand Canyon National Park. Along the route pass through the small town of Tusayan, AZ. Located just two miles from the park entrance, Tusayan is a charming town with shopping, dining, and hotel options.


As you arrive inside the park prepare yourself to see the splendor that is the Grand Canyon up close and personal. These majestic views can only be accessed from inside the park where the sheer size engulfs you in awe. Words cannot capture what the human eye will take in as the panoramic vista presents itself to you. A boxed lunch is provided by Maverick, and snacks are available for purchase at Bright Angel Lodge. But you’ll want to eat on the go to absorb as much of the surroundings as you can. As you walk around, let the magnificence of the Grand Canyon wash over you with its bold, beautiful colors.

With so much to explore in the Park, you could easily enjoy a full week there. Thankfully the Grand Canyon will be there for you to book a return trip and see the splendor all over again. Maverick’s Explorer tour is the way to go when you want to get the most out of your vacation and enjoy your time in the park.
