When John Wesley Powell first floated through Glen Canyon in 1869, he could not see the breadth and depth of these Canyons that you will experience from the top of Tower Butte. You will stand in front of Boundary Butte and the Crossing of the Fathers of Lake Powell’s Padre Bay…where Padre Dominguez & Escalante crossed the Colorado River in 1776. This area of Lake Powell has been the historic crossing by Native American’s for many generations. Today you are able to experience it simply by ascending to the top of Tower Butte by Helicopter!
Over 5,000 feet above sea level, Tower Butte is the perfect setting for your helicopter landing adventure. After boarding your state-of-the-art helicopter, you will fly eastward over the Navajo Nation portion of Antelope Canyon and Lake Powell as you ascend to the top of Tower Butte.
You won’t believe it when you touch down and walk to the edge of this towering monolith near Lake Powell. The panoramic view is absolutely breathtaking of this incredible landscape. See the Canyons of Lake Powell, Navajo Mountain, LeChee Rock and much, much more. You will enjoy approximately 20 minutes on top of Tower Butte for memorable photo opportunities and interpretive information about the Navajo culture. Tower Butte is ONLY accessible by helicopter!
Incredible memories, spectacular photographs and more are all yours to keep.
This 360 Degree vista is unbelievable when you look around and can see from the Vermilion Cliff’s to the Kaiparowit’s Plateau. Navajo Mountain, Le Chee Rock, the Echo Cliff’s offer more than enough landscape to fill your camera’s lens.
My family took the helicopter to tower butte and it was absolutely AMAZING!! We were floored by the beautiful views. I’m hoping the views stayed burned in my brain for a lifetime because pictures just don’t do it justice. This is an experience you just can’t miss!
