Your Grand Canyon helicopter tour starts with pickup from your Las Vegas hotel by a luxury van.
After your transfer to the airport in Boulder City, receive a warm welcome from your pilot and a safety briefing for your flight in a state-of-the-art A-Star helicopter. Then take to the skies for your 70-minute flight to the Grand Canyon. You'll get amazing views along the way, passing over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill and the dark volcanic cliffs of the Black Canyon.
When you arrive at the Grand Canyon, your pilot takes you down towards the canyon floor to look at colorful rock walls and see the Colorado River up close, then follow the path of the Colorado River past rock formations that formed millions of years ago. Keep your camera handy for photo ops of cathedral buttresses, sculptural rock pillars and enormous canyon expanses everywhere you look.
Bonus: Your tour includes a 30-minute landing at Grand Canyon West Airport. Have time to explore the a Native American gift shop where you can purchase jewelry and other items crafted by Native American artisans, mementos from the Old West, and Grand Canyon and Skywalk memorabilia. During the return flight, see other natural wonders such as the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness.
Visiting the Grand Canyon is a must-do when in the American Southwest. Choose from departure times throughout the day, which make this once-in-a-lifetime experience an easy excursion from Las Vegas.
Please note: While there is a stop at the Grand Canyon West Airport, you will not enter the park.
