Our Spectacular Smokies Helicopter Tour

Offering awe-inspiring views of both the Tennessee and North Carolina sides of the Great Smoky National Park, this helicopter adventure covers almost the entire Tennessee side of the national park. It features approximately 110 miles of breathtaking views featuring some of the oldest landscapes on the planet and soars over Greenbriar Valley, Newfound Gap, Clingmans Dome, Cades Cove, Townsend, and Wears Valley.

Narration by your helicopter adventure guide includes the history of the people who have lived in the mountains, and the ecological threats to the park, both past and present. This tour can also be customized to highlight a specific area of the park you wish to see more of. Due to the unpredictable weather patterns in the higher elevations, your flight route may vary.
