Dear Friends of the Caverns,
January is usually a quiet month, with bad weather to blame. But, the weather is perfect this year – come join us! We wish you were here! For the first time since the freeway bypassed the Caverns many years ago, leaving Route 66 to a foregone era, we are anticipating a shortage of hotel rooms and record high occupancy. With all the exciting new adventures that are coming, I strongly recommend you book early. The Friends of the Caverns are our best and most hardcore fans, and I don’t want you to miss out!

This month @ the GCC:
HELICOPTER TOURS TO AND SCENIC FLIGHTS AT THE CAVERNS
The Grand Canyon Caverns (GCC) is very excited that Guidance Air, Sedona’s premier helicopter tour operator, is going to offer tours to the GCC starting this month, February 2018! Guidance Air will be running a variety of tours from Sedona to the GCC and while those tour guests are enjoying the caverns, the helicopter(s) will be available for other guests already at the GCC to use for local scenic rides. The Heli tours being offered by Guidance Air to the GCC include a round trip flight on a helicopter from Sedona to the Grand Canyon Caverns and one of these GCC activities:
- Cave tour and Grotto Restaurant lunch: The great Regular Tour (or short tour if that is best for you) will be combined with a meal 200 ft. underground at the Grotto restaurant.
- Wild Tour: Get adventurous as you put on explorer equipment and journey deep into the big cave first discovered in August 2014.
- Overnight at the world-famous Cavern Suite: Spend a night deep underground in the Grand Canyon Caverns, in the middle of a massive cave all to yourself!
More Helicopter tours, shuttles, and ferrying of guests to, from, and at, the GCC will be announced soon.
