Full Description

Get an amazing overview of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park area, and take in 50 miles (about 80 miles) of spectacular natural beauty on this 25-minute helicopter tour. Delight in the longest running tour in the area and fly with an expert pilot who will ensure you have an unforgettable experience. 

Take off over historic downtown Sevierville and immediately enjoy stunning views of the Smoky Mountains. Continue over the strip of Pigeon Forge while taking in all the sights of the surrounding areas as you move southbound to Gatlinburg. Once over Gatlinburg, head west far and away from civilization into the National Park.

Get your camera ready as this is a very popular area to view wildlife with an unrestricted view. Fly over the stunning Sugarland Valley, Fighting Creek Gap, and into the Elkmont area of the park. Admire views of Mount Leconte, Clingmans Dome, and Cove Mountain, as you round out of the Elkmont area and follow the Little River to Metcalf Bottoms.

From there, continue on to the sparsely developed areas of the always beautiful Wears Valley and Walden's Creek before crossing over Bluff Mountain and into the Tennessee Valley. As you follow along Bluff Mountain, soar over the rolling foothills of Sevier County towards the heliport to land.
