What You Can Expect

Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour with Landing

Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour with Landing

Discover the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon from the air and from the ground on this thrilling helicopter tour. After being picked up from your Las Vegas hotel, enjoy the short ride to the Henderson Executive Airport, where you’ll board your air-conditioned Eco-Star helicopter, featuring theatre-style seating for excellent views out the large windows, even from the back row! Settle into your front-facing leather seat and feel your heart pound as you take off.

On your way to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, pass over Lake Las Vegas, Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. Hoover Dam is a particularly spectacular sight from the air, curved between the rock canyon walls. Marvel at this architectural wonder and enjoy the amazing views of the recently built bypass bridge. During your flight, you can listen to a recorded commentary about the Grand Canyon and its surrounds via headphones.

You’ll then reach the Grand Canyon and fly deeper and further into the canyon than any other helicopter tour, landing on a private bluff overlooking the flowing Colorado River. From this incredible perch 3,500 feet below the canyon rim, toast to your experience with a glass of Champagne and a light snack. While you celebrate and relax under an authentic Native American ramada shelter, your pilot will be happy to answer any questions you have about the canyon or your helicopter flight.

Back in the helicopter, enjoy another 40-minute flight back to Las Vegas, this time flying low over Black Canyon, Hoover Dam and Fortification Hill. When you land, your transportation will be waiting to whisk you back to your hotel.
