Helicopter tours are far more reliable for aerial sightseeing than invading a neighbor's tree fort or mounting webcams to a passing cloud. Get elevated with today's Groupon at Scenic Helicopter Tours, whose heliport is located in Sevierville, TN. Choose between the following options:
- For $87, you get a 20-minute Wears Valley flight (up to a $173.01 value).
- For $18, you get a six-minute Douglas Lake flight (up to a $36.13 value).
Providing FAA and National Park Service-approved in-air viewings for almost four decades, Scenic Helicopter Tours levitates nature-lovers high above scenic vistas of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The six-minute Douglas Lake flight ventures 1,500 feet above ground and covers a 10-12-mile route beyond the French Broad River. Photo-documentarians can snap shots of such photogenic subjects as Mount LeConte or the hyper-glamorous Douglas Dam while enjoying a ride about as smooth as a car. Upgrade your journey in a black and yellow whirligig to include dramatic narration from the wisdom-laden pilot with a headset rental at $4.50 per person.
The headphones and scholarly commentary are automatically included with the Wears Valley trip, a 20-minute cruise through 40-50 miles of remote, undeveloped areas of the Smokies, providing a varied view of the park and close encounters with orphaned helium balloons. The extended tour showcases the communities of historic downtown Sevierville, Pigeon Forge, and Gatlinburg alongside the majestic mountaintops.
Though Scenic Helicopter Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
