This Grand Canyon experience begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup, followed by a quick trip to Henderson Executive Airport just south of the city.
After boarding the helicopter, the 45-minute flight passes over sites like the famous Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering; the aqua waters and sandstone shorelines of beautiful Lake Mead; and 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. The helicopter’s large windows offer great views for all travelers, plus headphones will be provided to learn about the passing sights through recorded commentary.
Upon reaching the Grand Canyon, hover high above, then descend down between the canyon’s walls and land on a private bluff above the Colorado River. Enjoy a champagne toast with a light snack (vegetables, fruit, crackers and cheese) beneath the shade of an authentic Native American ramada to commemorate the moment. Be sure to bring a camera for this one-of-a-kind photo opportunity.
The trip concludes with a return flight over the vertical wilderness of the Black Canyon’s steep cliffs and spires en route to Las Vegas and a hotel drop-off.
