Overview
Fly high above the Great Smoky Mountains on this helicopter tour over the Tennessee countryside. From the urban layout of Gatlinburg to the undisturbed wilderness of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, this tour will give you a good sense of the area over its 50 mile course. Plus, guided commentary from your pilot fills you in on the area's history and geology as you weave through the sky.
What to Expect
The National Park Tour is the grand daddy of them all! With over forty years flying in the Smoky Mountain National Park Scenic Helicopter Tours knows how to make it a special experience you are sure to never forget! The best part of this flight is the value, with the National Park including all of our mountain flights and then some. Taking off over historic downtown Sevierville you are instantly greeted with stunning views of the Smoky Mountains. The flight continues 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 you will head west far and away from civilization into the National Park itself! Get your camera ready as this is a very popular area to view wildlife with an unrestricted birds eye view! You will fly over the stunning Sugarland Valley, Fighting Creek Gap and into the Elkmont area of the park. With views of Mount Leconte, Clingmans Dome, and Cove Mountain you will round out of the Elkmont area and follow the Little River to Metcalf Bottoms and on to the sparsely developed areas of the always beautiful Wears Valley and Walden's Creek. The National Park flight route then falls in line with the route of the exciting Ridge Runner tour and crosses over Bluff Mountain and into the Tennessee Valley. As you follow along Bluff Mountain you will fly over the rolling foothills of Sevier County towards the Scenic Heliport. This flight covers a 50 mile flight route with an average flight time of 25 minutes.
