Take a break from the casinos to experience one of Earth’s most impressive natural attractions—and still have time to enjoy an afternoon by the pool. After morning pickup at your Las Vegas hotel in a limousine, ride in style to the launch pad and climb aboard a state-of-the-art A-Star jet helicopter with room for six passengers.
Get a fantastic aerial perspective on the Las Vegas Strip as you rise into the air. During the scenic flight across the desert and into Arizona, take in views of Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam while learning about the area’s geologic history from your pilot.
As the 277-mile (446-kilometer) Grand Canyon comes into view, its awe-inspiring scale can truly be appreciated from the air. Fly above the cavernous expanse, which reaches widths of up to 18 miles (29 kilometers), and then descend more than 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) down the lip of the canyon’s West Rim. After this thrilling entry, touch down on the banks of the Colorado River, which carved the magnificent canyon over millions of years.
Enjoy a basket of snacks with a glass of Champagne on the riverbank, and then board a pontoon boat for a cruise down the Colorado River. As you glide along the gentle currents, gaze up at the canyon’s towering walls for an amazing new perspective.
After the cruise, return to your helicopter and rise up out of the canyon for the return flight to Las Vegas. Your tour concludes in the late morning with limousine drop-off back at your hotel.
The boat portion of the tour may be canceled due to high water levels in the Colorado River. In the case of a cancellation, extra time at the base of the canyon is offered or a partial refund is issued.
