Viator Exclusive: Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour with Optional Below-the-Rim Landing and Skywalk Upgrade

This Grand Canyon experience begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup en route to Henderson Executive Airport just south of the city. 

After boarding the aircraft, the 45-minute flight passes over sites like Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead; Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano before soaring along the winding path of the mighty Colorado River and into the incredible landscape of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.

Upon landing at the Grand Canyon’s West Rim, enjoy approximately 3.5 hours to explore the various overlooks and highlights in the area. Visit Eagle Point, home of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a glass walkway nearly 4,000 feet above the floor of the canyon. Upgrade for a ticket to experience the breathtaking view from this unique vantage point.

Then at Guano Point, see the Grand Canyon up close from the top of an old Guano Mine. Hike the side trail to the mine or go up and over the rocky hill to see incredible view from what feels like the top of the world. Also, visit the Hualapai Ranch to go horseback riding (for an additional fee) or enjoy a variety of cowboy entertainment activities, like wagon rides, roping demonstrations and more.

Make sure to take time for lunch at one of the viewpoints, which is included in the price of the tour.

As an added option, take a helicopter flight to the bottom of the Grand Canyon. While hovering high above, swoop down between the canyon’s walls and land on the bottom. Walk around, get an up-close look at the many layers of the interior of the canyon and gain an even greater appreciation of the immensity of this natural wonder. 

On the return trip, enjoy more of the sights and sounds from the sky, including the beautiful Las Vegas strip, before a final hotel drop-off. 

Notice: There is a maximum capacity of six people per helicopter, plus the pilot. The listed price does not include a $15 (USD) per person fuel surcharge, payable at the time of tour check-in. All passengers 18 years of age and older must present a photo ID at the time of check-in.

A really pleasent trip! Probably the best and smoothest way great way to experience the Grand Canyon. I haven and #39;t been at any of the other rims, but we enjoy the western rim. Lots of nice views as well as the Sky walk and west rim seems to have a warmer climate than south rim during winter months.

The whole day was fantastic and recommend the Below-the-Rim Landing, however once you have arrived by Helicopter the Skywalk was a little underwhelming.

The helicopter trip and views, above and below the rim, were phenomenal they exceed my expectations. The rim activities added some more depth but the crowds detracted a bit from the pleasure of being there. I thought the Skywalk was interesting but wouldn't recommend it--it just didn't add very much, especially since cameras weren't permitted.

This is a marvelous way to experience the Grand Canyon!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2016

You have to go to the canyon floor to really experience it. Traveling by helicopter from Henderson reduced the trip from 4 hours to 45 minutes. The trip is to the West rim so it includes the skywalk which is unbelievable. 4000 feet straight down. You cannot take your cameras on to the skywalk you have to buy their photos of you. But you can take pictures right next to it The helicopter ride to the floor made the trip. on the floor looking up is surreal.
