Return Details

Returns to original departure point
This Grand Canyon experience begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup, followed by a quick trip to Henderson Executive Airport just south of the city. 

After boarding your helicopter, the 40-minute flight passes 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. The helicopter’s large windows offer great views for all travelers, plus headphones will be provided to learn about the passing sights through recorded commentary.

Upon reaching the Grand Canyon, hover high above, then descend down between the canyon’s walls and land on a private bluff above the Colorado River. Enjoy a Champagne toast with a light snack (vegetables, fruit, crackers, and cheese) beneath the shade of an authentic Native American Ramada to commemorate the moment. Be sure to bring a camera for this one-of-a-kind photo opportunity.

The trip concludes with a return flight over the vertical wilderness of the Black Canyon’s steep cliffs and spires en route to Las Vegas and a hotel drop-off.

There is a maximum capacity of seven people per helicopter, plus your pilot. Per FAA regulations, all passengers 18 years and older will be required to show photo ID such as a driver's license or passport at the time of check-in.

Perfect. Something different to do in Las Vegas besides gambling.. my first time riding a helicopter in front seat. And everyone got a turn to be a front seat passenger. The view was spectacular. Landing on the floor of the Grand Canyon was so neat. I have been to the Grand Canyon many times but never down in canyon.
