Air tours are a wonderful to experience the expanse of the American Southwest. Whether you're short on time or just love the view from above, many tour companies offer air tours from Sedona, Flagstaff, Tusayan, Las Vegas, and Page. One of the benefits of an air tour is that you can cover more national parks, monuments and attractions in a shorter amount of time. Though it will be a less intimate experience than if you were standing at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, the eagle-eye perspective of the grandeur of the American Southwest will be difficult to match. There are helicopter tours to the Grand Canyon, Sedona, Glen Canyon Dam, and others.
Biplane is also an option over certain national parks and attractions. If you want to do it all, choose a combination tour that will allow you to fly over the Grand Canyon, stand at the edge of Horseshoe Bend and shimmy through the narrow walls of Antelope Canyon. There's not one best way to adventure, just the one that makes you feel most alive!
