As our guests smoothly lift off from the ground, their journey begins flying over the mighty Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, Fortification Hill and the Colorado River. Guests may not be able to describe the exhilaration they feel flying overhead in a jet assisted all american helicopter. Escape the glitz and glamour of the city as guests enter the beauty of nature’s creation as they descend onto the very floor of the Grand Canyon in Arizona, where the surrounding and storied canyon walls have been etched by millions and millions of years worth of geological changes. During our guests flight they may encounter and get to experience the beauty of the animal kingdom, watching the eagles soar through the sky, witness the wild horses running free, and see rare and agile desert bighorn sheep among the rocks in their natural habitat.
Upon arrival into the canyon, guests will descend nearly 4000 feet below the rim into the Grand Canyon and land a private landing site in the heart of Hualapai Indian territory. Guests will celebrate their experience with champagne, beverages and a light snack some 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River in one of the greatest natural wonders of the world. Plenty of time for exploring and pictures.
As the excitement of the tour begins to wind down with the journey home, guests will share their last memorable moments as they pass by some amazing red rock areas well known for the ancient Indians ruins, flaming rock formations and the desert Southwest. Guests will then be shuttled back to their original hotels having experienced one of the most amazing helicopter tours in the world.
