Grand Canyon, Arizona


The Grand Canyon Classic Wing Safari is an exhilarating, air/land, scenic wanderlust, through 800 million years of time, to the seventh natural wonder of the world. Depart Santa Fe Airport at 7 a.m., when desert colors are at their best. Fly over the purple-silhouetted canyons of the Rio Grande River, Bandelier National Monument, and the Jemez Mountains. Volcanic cinder cones and historic Pueblo villages pass beneath the wing as the safari plane cruises above the buttes, mesas, and monuments of New Mexico's Land of Enchantment. The flight continues past the renowned Pueblo ruins of Chaco Canyon, over the dinosaur fossil beds of the Bisti Badlands, above the alpine lakes of the Chuska Mts., then along the full length of breathtaking Canyon de Chelly. The second half of the airventure features the Navajo and Hopi Reservations, the brilliant pastels of the Painted Desert, the rugged gorges of the Little Colorado River, and the rainbow-striped splendor of the Grand Canyon itself. Land at the national park airport, transfer to the South Rim, and enjoy a self-guided tour of the Canyon, including a relaxed stroll along its edge, time for a picnic lunch under the pines, and picture-taking of the mind-boggling abyss. Return flight to Santa Fe arrives by 3:30 p.m. Geology, archaeology, and botany come alive on this fully narrated, aerial exploration of the Great American Southwest. Designed for adventure travelers and natural history enthusiasts, this far-roaming sky/ground safari is a once-in-a-lifetime experience! $795/person, 3-fare minimum. Package includes all flying, ground transportation, park entrance fee, and box lunch. A dream fulfilled. (Top of Page)
