    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.
