Where to Find the Best Views of the Grand Canyon

By Viator, July 2017

5 14698 Reviews | Add your review

Red rock gorges, sandstone fires, jagged slopes, and plummeting cliffs—the Grand Canyon is striking from just about every angle. Here are some ways to get off the rim and see this natural wonder from above or below for the most spectacular views.

Helicopter Rides
Due to the sheer size and scope of the Grand Canyon, the best views undoubtedly come from the sky. Helicopter tours typically depart from the Grand Canyon or Las Vegas and can be packaged with other experiences, like a picnic or walking tour on the West Rim, a below-the-rim landing, a Colorado River boat ride, or a romantic al fresco dinner.

Airplane Tours
To get to the Grand Canyon in style (and enjoy some bird's-eye views along the way), hop aboard an executive-style airplane for a day of sightseeing around the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park. Each all-leather seat enjoys a window view, and once on the ground in the park, you'll visit several iconic lookout points. Alternately, take an hour-long "flightseeing" tour of the desert, with panoramic views of the Grand Canyon, Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam, and the Colorado River.

Grand Canyon Skywalk
For travelers on a budget, one of the most economical ways to gaze directly down into the canyon is on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass-bottomed, horseshoe-shaped bridge extending 70 feet out over the rim. Admission to the Skywalk is typically available as an upgrade on Grand Canyon tours.

White Water Rafting Tours
The Grand Canyon is undeniably beautiful from above, but to get a sense for how deep it really is, you need to see it from the bottom. Thrill-seekers can take on 40 miles of varied rapids along the mighty Colorado River during a white water rafting tour through the Grand Canyon, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way.
