Since 1989, Royal Gorge Helitours has been giving thrilling rides in helicopters in the Royal Gorge area near Cañon City. The granite canyon walls, towering mountains, and famous suspension bridge make for an unforgettable and picturesque journey.
When you take off from the Royal Gorge Heliport and fly into the sky, you feel freer than any other mode of transportation. In a matter of seconds, you’ll have soared above the canyon wall, and the almost 1,000-foot plunge to the Arkansas River below will be in full view.
The experienced pilots are friendly and have over 7,000 hours of flight time in the Colorado mountains and over three decades combined in aviation. It’s one of the best ways to experience this narrow canyon and high suspension bridge.
Year-Round Heli Tours
Each Robinson R66 helicopter can hold a maximum of four people in addition to the pilot. There is a two-seat minimum, so if you would like to travel solo, you’ll have to buy two tickets.
