Enjoy a spectacular Canyonlands airplane scenic tour that will carry you above the fantastic scenery of all three districts of Canyonlands National Park: Upheaval Dome where mighty Colorado meets the Green River; Needles District of colorful spiral rock formations; and legendary Arches District tucked away in the backcountry.
Admire majestic 1000-foot high cliffs above the Colorado and Green Rivers, and the serpentine drainage systems carved into the terrain below the cliffs. Upheaval Dome can be seen at its northern end; the Confluence of the two rivers forms the district's southernmost point. Then on to the Needles District, the most fanciful and colorful portion of Canyonlands. Pink and white bands can be seen in its many spires and cliffs, and it is the home of some of the most remote and famous arches of canyon country. Difficult to reach by hiking and extremely beautiful, Angel Arch and Druid Arches are the best known. Elephant Arch, Kirk Arch, Wedding Ring Arch, and Castle Arch, hidden away in the backcountry, are also included. On this flight, you will admire the wondrous features of this national park with a bird’s-eye view in the vastness of this remarkable portion of our earth. Superbly colored and varied, views of these features are breathtaking from the ground, but even more amazing to behold from the air!
