Enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience with a one-day scenic flight from Phoenix to the Grand Canyon and back! AOA’s partnership with Westwind Air Services makes it possible to visit Arizona’s natural wonder of the world in a one day tour from Phoenix. Head north on a narrated flight past the famous red rocks of Sedona, fly by the 12,000 ft tall San Francisco Peaks, and enjoy a truly unique scenic flight over Grand Canyon itself. Our flight will land just outside Grand Canyon National Park so that we can embark on a guided hike into the canyon itself. Enjoy a picnic lunch and learn all about the history and secrets of Grand Canyon from one of AOA’s professional hiking guides. After a rewarding day in the canyon, enjoy the return flight to Phoenix as you reflect on your truly Arizona adventure.

Hiking Tour location is determined by interests and fitness level of guests.

AOA were excellent hosts from start to finish and beyond. Their guides for our trip (pilot and hiking guide) were both professional and personable.Martin

Take a scenic flight to Grand Canyon from Phoenix, Arizona and enjoy a guided hike into the canyon all in one exciting day!

Combine the unique experience of a Guided Flight and Air Tour with Westwind Air over Sedona and the Grand Canyon followed by a guided hiking tour into the Grand Canyon led by the guides at AOA. On Westwind’s Cessna aircraft every seat is a window seat. Your flight to the Grand Canyon will be expertly narrated as you fly over the Tonto National Forest, the Red Rocks of Sedona, past the San Francisco Peaks and Arizona’s highest point, Mt. Humphreys. Upon reaching the Canyon, your air tour continues with a 30 minute flight over the widest and deepest part of the Canyon, flying as low as 1,000 feet above the rim – this rare opportunity is only authorized to three companies. The flight lands at Grand Canyon Airport where you will travel by van into Grand Canyon National Park for the afternoon hiking tour. This combination of activities makes for the best Phoenix day trip you can find to tour the Grand Canyon.
