    Mountains and Ancient Sights Helicopter Tour

    On this helicopter tour from Sedona, see the region's mountain highlights and ancient attractions. Fly over the Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness to see where locals play in the great outdoors, and admire the stunning beauty of natural attractions like Secret Canyon. Then see the ancient cliff dwellings of the Sinaguan people, who lived in the area between 500 AD and 1425 AD. After pickup from your hotel, head to the Sedona airport to board your helicopter and fly west toward the Red Rock-Secret Mountain Wilderness, passing over the Dry Creek area.

    One of the Sedona area's most popular destinations for hiking and other mountain activities, the wilderness is surrounded on three sides by high red cliffs that are split by many deep and hidden canyons, including Secret Canyon, which you'll see.

    Next, fly over Rattlesnake Mesa and into Boynton Canyon to see the ancient cliff homes of the Sinaguan people, a pre-Columbian group that occupied the Verde Valley region from 500 AD to 1425 AD. Their incredible homes have stood the test of time and are some of the most interesting sights on your helicopter tour.

    On your way back to the airport, fly over Bear Mountain, Fay's Arch and Doe Mesa.

    Sedona Helicopter Tour: Red Rocks and Chapel of the Holy Cross

    At just 15 minutes, this helicopter tour allows you to get a quick taste of the Sedona area's famous red rock formations and stunning attractions. You'll fly past Lee Mountain and soar over the Chapel of the Holy Cross, a famous chapel built in the 1950s that rises dramatically from the red rocks. See the Three Nuns rock formation and then fly past more natural sights, including Snoopy Rock, Steamboat Rock, Bear Wallow Canyon and Schnebly Hill Road. After you've been picked up from your Sedona hotel and have boarded your helicopter, your thrilling 15-minute journey starts as you fly past Lee Mountain and head to the Chapel of the Holy Cross, an impressive Catholic chapel that was built in 1956 on Coconino National Forest land and is one of Sedona's most popular attractions. The chapel rises 250 feet (76 meters) out of a massive red rock formation and blends in wonderfully with its natural surroundings. Catch a glimpse of the Three Nuns, a red rock formation that looks like three nuns praying outside.

    Next, soar past Snoopy Rock, named because it resembles the loveable Peanuts character, and Steamboat Rock before flying over Bear Wallow Canyon. Then look down on Schnebly Hill Road, an old stagecoach route from the late 1800s that was named after Sedona Arabelle Miller Schnebly, Sedona's namesake and the city's first postmaster.
