1 Hour Canyonlands National Park Air Tour

This spectacular flight will carry you above the fantastic scenery of the northern district of Canyonlands National Park, Island in the Sky. Majestic 1000-foot high cliffs rise above the Colorado and Green Rivers, which border it on either side. Serpentine drainage systems are carved into the terrain below the cliffs. Upheaval Dome can be seen at its northern end; the Confluence of the the two rivers form 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 back country, are also included. Photographic opportunities abound! The following are featured on this flight:

  • Island in the Sky
  • Upheaval Dome
  • The Colorado and Green Rivers
  • The Needles in the Needles District
  • Druid Arch
  • Elephant Arch
  • Angel Arch
  • Kirk Arch
  • Wedding Ring Arch
  • Castle Arch

Hiking to these arches would take several multi-day permitted visits, and are beyond the physical reach of many of us. On this flight you will see them all —jewels among the many wondrous features of this national park. And unlike hikers, you will see their magnificent surroundings with a bird’s-eye view in the vastness of this remarkable portion of our earth.
