Your Colorado River and Grand Canyon sightseeing tour begins with a hotel pickup in Las Vegas. Head to the Boulder City Municipal Airport for your 1-hour round-trip flight through the Grand Canyon's West Rim.
After boarding the helicopter, pass over sites such as 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.
Stop for 30 minutes at the Grand Canyon West Airport, and explore the Hualapai Indian Gift Shop. Look for Grand Canyon and Skywalk souvenirs, jewelry, and items crafted by Native American artisans.
After leaving the Grand Canyon, the return flight will include panoramic views of the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness and more before arriving back in Boulder City.
From there, take a short drive to the Colorado River launch area for a boat float at the base of the Hoover Dam. Climb aboard a comfortable raft, and meander along the river through the Black Canyon. Keep an eye out for bighorn sheep, osprey, and great blue heron in their natural setting. Then stop at a secluded beach to take an optional dip in the clear water, and enjoy a picnic box lunch.
The trip concludes with a Las Vegas hotel drop-off.
