Our Grand Canyon helicopter picnic tour is hands down one of the best ways to explore the Grand Canyon West Rim. This is because choppers can bob and weave among the Canyon’s buttes and side canyons. But why stop there! This particular flight lands on the floor for a Champagne toast. Now that’s a tour for the ages. So buckle up and prepare yourself for the trip of a lifetime.
This flight takes off from its own private VIP helipad in Las Vegas. This is a huge convenience for our clients because other companies shuttle you off on a 20-to-30-ground transfer to Boulder City, North Las Vegas or Henderson. It’s time you can ill-afford to lose and it’s one of the reasons why this flight is always one of our top-sellers.
Your helicopter will lift horizontally off the airstrip, point its nose east and roar forward to Boulder City and Lake Mead. Immediately into the flight you’ll pat yourself on the back for taking this tour, but the real kudos come when you’re circling over the Hoover Dam, an epic structure that generates power for nearly all the key cities in the West.
Then it’s up and over Grand Cliffs Wash before making the 3,500-foot descent to the bottom. Please remember that going below the Rim is only allowed at the West Rim, which makes this tour extra special and unique. On the ground, you’ll enjoy a Champagne brunch in a landscape that few people on this planet will ever experience.
There’s plenty of time to explore this remarkable destination (make sure to walk down to the Colorado River) before getting back into the helicopter and making the equally dramatic ascent to the top. If you’re looking for a Las Vegas highlight to write home about, this is one tour that definitely fits the bill.
