Las Vegas Grand Canyon West Rim Air Adventure Helicopter Tour
Helicopter flight over West Rim
Fly to the Grand Canyon West Rim by fixed-wing airplane, ride a helicopter beneath the rim, cruise down the Colorado River, then enjoy a barbecue lunch at the West Rim. You’ll experience the Grand Canyon by airplane, helicopter, boat, and shuttle bus on this full-day air adventure from Las Vegas!
Window seats on the plane are guaranteed on the 40-minute flight to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim. After your flight, you’ll board a jet-powered helicopter to descend 4,000 feet (1,200 meters) below the rim to the canyon floor for a relaxing 15-minute cruise on the mighty Colorado River.
After your boat ride you’ll board the helicopter once more to ascend back to the top of the rim. Here you’ll have time to visit the West Rim Welcome Center at your leisure, using the hop-on, hop-off shuttle bus which operates in the area. During the short trips between each stop, your driver/guide will tell you about the traditional land owners and the history of the park.
Visit Guano Point for fantastic views of the Colorado River, and enjoy a casual barbecue lunch. Explore the Indian Village at Eagle Point to gain further insights into Native American culture. Or take an optional stroll on the spectacular Grand Canyon Skywalk (not included, approximately US$33), the newest attraction on the West Rim.
Then sit back after your day of sightseeing on your return flight to Las Vegas, knowing you have experienced the Grand Canyon West Rim from all angles!
