Grand Canyon NP/South Rim Departure

When you visit the South Rim of the Grand Canyon (near the Grand Canyon National Park and the village of Tusayan), it is recommended to book a helicopter flight from Grand Canyon NP Airport. This airport is approximately 8 miles/20 minutes drive (by car) from Grand Canyon Village in the National Park. Flights from the South Rim are usually experienced as the most spectacular because this is where the Grand Canyon is at its best.
