Overview

Grand Canyon West Rim Helicopter Tour

Experience an exhilarating flight as you ascend out of Las Vegas, over Hoover Dam and across sections of Lake Mead. Enjoy amazing views of Temple Rock, Iceberg Canyon and Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano. Keep an eye open for wildlife along the way as big horn sheep, mountain lions and wild horses roam freely. You will then fly through the Grand Canyon to descend and land 3,500 feet below the rim on Hualapai Indian territory and Maverick’s private landing area. Champagne, beverages and a light snack will be served some 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River. While flying back through the Grand Canyon, you will observe the stunning red rock formations of the Bowl of Fire and Wild Pinto Wash. Conclude your adventure with a breathtaking flight over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas. This excursion lasts approximately 4 hours (hotel to hotel).

If you want to add some extra excitement, consider choosing the Sunset Tour. This outing offers an extended landing time inside the Grand Canyon and returns at sunset just as the bright lights of Las Vegas glitter to life. This excursion lasts approximately 4.5 hours (hotel to hotel).
