Our Ever-Popular Smoky Mountains Helicopter Tour

This truly is a Grand Tour of the Great Smoky Mountains! When time is limited and you need to fit as much into our vacation as possible, this helicopter adventure is for you. It begins over downtown Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg before entering the national park boundary. Once inside the park, you will fly from the Sugarlands area all the way to Cades Cove.

Views along the route include Elkmont, Blanket Mountain, Meigs Mountain, Tremont and Thunderhead. Depending on the time of day, there is a good possibility you’ll see wildlife. Whitetail deer, turkeys, black bear and even wild hogs have been seen on this tour. Even if there isn’t any wildlife stirring during your flyover of the Cove, the views are still breathtaking. This 90-mile flight is a once in a lifetime experience that cannot be missed! Be sure to bring your camera!
