Remarkable Grand Canyon South Rim

UnCategorized The South Rim of the Grand Canyon en.passes an impressive one million acres of natural beauty. It would be nearly impossible to see everything it has to offer if you only had a short time on the ground. Instead, you’ll want to take a tour on one of the Grand Canyon helicopters that flies you over nearly 75 percent of the entire National Park in under an hour. You would take months trekking around the park if you wanted to take in all of the sites that you can see from a helicopter tour. Plus, there is no .parison between seeing the canyon from the ground and seeing it in .plete view from the air. There’s no doubt the views from a tour helicopter are unmatched, and the South Rim provides the perfect scenic views to make the trip worthwhile. South Rim Tours There are actually different air tours you can take of the South Rim, so you can pick out one that fits your budget and interests. The most affordable option would be the 30 minute helicopter ride which will take you to the North Rim and back to the South. You’ll see many beautiful landmarks, including Dragoon Corridor, which is the deepest part of the canyon. These flights can be upgraded with a Jeep ride through the canyon. So along with the exciting aerial tour, you’ll get to take a fun ground tour to famous spots such as Mather Point, Yavapai Point, and Yaki Point, as well as Grand Canyon Village. The roads in the Grand Canyon are often quite busy during the peak summer tourist months. That’s why a Jeep tour is a good idea, you get to see the main landmarks without having to travel on the busy main roads. If you want to see all that the canyon has to offer from the air then the 50 minute helicopter ride would be your best option. The longer tour covers a lot more ground, so you see the same sights as the shorter tour and the Jeep tour .bined. You’ll see the isolated North Rim, the Colorado River Confluence, Imperial Point, and the Temple of Ra, which is an amazing rock formation in the shape of a pyramid. This is really a great tour, and it covers nearly all of the land in the park. (There is an airplane tour which follows an identical route to the 50 minute helicopter tour. I re.mend the helicopter tours, even the shorter ones, simply because you will have a better view of the sights. The helicopters can fly a lot lower than airplanes, so you’re closer to the canyon, plus the windows in the airplanes are much smaller than the big wraparound windows in the choppers that provide superior viewing.) Choosing Between The Deluxe And Basic Tours Both versions of the South Rim helicopter tours are available in basic or deluxe options. The difference between the two is the helicopter that you will fly in. The deluxe tours fly on state-of-the-art EcoStar 130 sightseeing helicopters, while the basic tours fly on Bell Rangers or Eurocopter AStars. The EcoStar has more .fortable seating, and a wraparound window design that offers the best views from the air. These helicopters are also a lot quieter, so your ride is more pleasant. So the deluxe air tours offer a better and more .fortable experience, but if you don’t want to spend the extra money, you’ll still have a great time on a basic tour. South Rim helicopter tours have be.e increasingly popular in recent years, and today a helicopter tour is usually the first on the priority list for those who visit the Grand Canyon. That means the tours can sell out fast. You want to book your helicopter tour in advance, in fact, you should go ahead and do it once you have your hotel dates locked in. If you wait until the last minute, you’ll have to pay more, and worse, the tours may be full. No trip to the Grand Canyon is .plete without taking a helicopter tour. There’s simply no better way to see the Grand Canyon. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
