What You'll Get

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:

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 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 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.

  • This was our first helicopter ride. The Pilot was fantastic, the scenery was great. – faye1630, TripAdvisor
  • I loved the people, the scenery, and the pilot was very professional and answered all of my questions about the area, and the aircraft. I recommend this to anyone and everyone, it's an expirience [sic] you will never forget! Brent, Yahoo! Travel
