For nearly 40 years, Scenic Helicopter Tours has lofted passengers over the green peaks and lush valleys of Great Smoky Mountains National Park on FAA- and National Park Service–approved sightseeing adventures. During the Douglas Lake flight’s 10-mile cloud-bound jaunt, pilots climb 1,500 feet, soaring over the French Broad River, the Douglas Dam, and the glassy Douglas Lake, as passengers catch glimpses of Mount LeConte in the distance. While soaring through the azure firmament on the Bluff Mountain flight, whirlybirds travel about 20–22 miles over Downtown Sevierville and the majestic heights of the Smoky Mountains filled with cigarette-puffing flora and fauna. All seats face forward in the helicopter, which carries three to four passengers, allowing for optimal views and enough voices to drown out the whirling propeller with mountain-man folk songs.
Though Scenic Helicopter Tours sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
