A movie viewed on a screen that is 6 stories tall is perhaps the only way to be officially introduced to the majesty of the Grand Canyon. Much of the 35-minute movie was filmed using video footage obtained by a camera attached to a hyper-lite aircraft, which weaved its way through the mile high walls, caverns and crevices.

The story of the Grand Canyon is as old as the earth itself, and the film follows the geologic processes that helped to form it, the lives of the first handful of humans to lay eyes on it, and the survival of the wildlife native to one of the world’s Seven Natural Wonders. As impressive as the film is, it will only whet your appetite for the real thing.

Try taking a Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight as an optional excursion while on tour in the USA.
