Want a tour that will leave you feeling all patriotic? This uplifting adventure will do the trick!

Take to the skies with Royal Gorge Helitours aboard a real-life whirly bird! Soar over the heartwarming terrain that inspired such 19th-century hits as "America the Beautiful," and ... Well that's pretty much it -- but its kind a big one, right?

Highlights include the Cripple Creek Mining District, where historic gold mines stand as forlorn reminders of a boomier days, and active mines still churn out shiny nuggets today. You'll also see the historic Shelf Road (a Pony Express route), Echo Valley, Phantom Canyon, The Royal Gorge, and America's highest suspension bridge!

You'll spend about 30 minutes aboard the helicopter from start to stop, and cover approximately 50 miles of staggering terrain. That's just about enough time to pen the next great American anthem. Maybe it will be a gold record.

Note: There is a 2 people minimum to book this tour. There is a 300lb. limit for this activity. Please indicate in the special requests box the names and weight of each participant.
