About Royal Gorge Helitours
The adventure begins as your helicopter lifts vertically off the Royal Gorge Heliport, giving you the thrilling sense of freedom only found in a helicopter. Moments later, you are soaring over the canyon rim as the earth opens up to reveal a nearly 1,000 foot drop to the Arkansas River below. With breathtaking views of the suspension bridge, sheer granite canyon walls, and majestic mountains, this is the ultimate scenic adventure!

We loved our experience in the sky! The staff was extremely friendly and explained a lot! Only reason we didn’t give it 5/5 is because it’s a pretty short ride

We surprised out teens with a Christmas lights tour of the Springs. The ride was great and the pilot was fantastic.

I surprised my boyfriend with this for Christmas, we had a blast and he loved it! I just wish the rides could be longer for a little cheaper but overall 20 minutes was perfect! I don't think 8 minutes would have been worth t.

The company was very accommodating and clear on what was to be expected from the helicopter ride. Being our first experience on a helicopter, we would highly recommend them, as they made the ride very enjoyable. It was worth every dime spent.
