One of the most remarkable natural wonders in the world, the Grand Canyon attracts over five million visitors a year. At 18 miles wide, 1 mile deep and 277 miles long, the impressive rock layers paint a cascade of colors. While a hike at the canyon’s rim offers incredible views, nothing compares to an air tour. The West Rim is the only section of the Grand Canyon where you can land at the bottom via helicopter, making it the only rim where the canyon floor can be visited as part of a day trip from Las Vegas. An exhilarating 4,000 ft descent, reaching the bottom is an experience like no other.
After being picked up from your hotel in Las Vegas, head to Boulder City Airport and board your luxurious EC 130 helicopter. On your 70-minute flight to the Grand Canyon West Rim, enjoy stunning panoramic views and a thrilling descent to the bottom of the canyon. On a private plateau, get treated with a grand canyon champagne picnic as you soak up the awe-inspiring environment surrounding you. Explore the banks of the Colorado River before boarding the helicopter for your return flight. Upon arrival at the airport terminal, check in with transportation desk and board a complimentary shuttle back to your hotel.

On your way back from a fantastic day of sightseeing at the Grand Canyon, let your adventure continue with a 20 minute flight over the glamorous strip.
