Description

A round-trip helicopter ride, VIP access to the Skywalk and a pontoon boat ride on the Colorado River — this is the ultimate combination for a Grand Canyon getaway from Las Vegas. After a scenic flight over Hoover Dam, you’ll fly directly to the bottom of the Grand Canyon for a 15-minute cruise on the river. Then ascend to the West Rim and step out on the glass-bottom deck of the Skywalk. A souvenir photo, snacks and coach transfers are included.

After hotel pickup in Las Vegas, you’re transferred by luxury coach to Boulder City Municipal Airport to board a state-of-the-art helicopter and take off toward the Grand Canyon.

Throughout your 35-minute scenic flight to the Grand Canyon West Rim, listen to narration and peer through the helicopter's wrap-around windows to admire sights such as the Hoover Dam, known for holding one of the largest bodies of water in the American Southwest, Lake Mead. As your professional pilot nears the Grand Canyon, enjoy jaw-dropping views of the volcanic Black Mountains and Grapevine Mesa Joshua Trees, and then across the Grand Wash Cliffs Wilderness. Soar above Guano Point, and descend 4,000 feet (1,220 meters) to land on the floor of the canyon.

You have about 30 minutes to explore here while hiking to the base of the Colorado River, where you'll board a pontoon boat for a smooth 15- to 20-minute ride that takes you one mile (1.6 kilometers) down the river. Soak up the stunning views, and take in the magnitude of the Grand Canyon before getting back in the helicopter to fly up to the rim.

Transfer by shuttle to Eagle Point for VIP front-of-the line admission to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. You’re treated to another spectacular view from the vantage point of this U-shaped, glass-floor bridge that extends 70 feet (21 meters) from the rim. Marvel at unique rock formations while you're suspended 4,000 feet above the Colorado River, and pose for your complimentary souvenir photo.

Enjoy a provided bag of light snacks before you re-board the helicopter for the return flight to Vegas, taking a different scenic route to Boulder City, where a coach takes you back to your hotel.
