Our guide to Grand Canyon Below the Rim Extended Air Tour
Embark on an incredible flight to one of the Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon. A luxury van will pick you up from your Las Vegas hotel to take you the ten minutes to McCarran Airport. Here you board a state-of-the-art helicopter designed with forward-facing seats for 180 degrees of unrestricted panoramic viewing. Your highly trained Pilot will make sure to provide you with some informative commentary as you fly over the magnificent Hoover Dam, the Bypass Bridge and the Black Canyon en route to the Grand Canyon.
Fly past Fortification Hill, a colourful extinct volcano that has become popular with hikers and then descend into the depths of the Grand Canyon for a 16 mile flight below the canyon rim. Soar like a golden eagle over the mighty Colorado River passing geological rock formations that have formed over millions of years.
After leaving the Grand Canyon, your return flight to Las Vegas will include other panoramic views of the rugged Mojave Desert wilderness before reaching Sin City and a descent along the Strip, passing such sights as the Stratosphere, The Bellagio and Caesar's Palace, before touching down at McCarran.

Grand Canyon Below the Rim Extended Air Tour Reviews
The early start was perfect for our short stay at Vegas. The 90 minutes was plenty of time and the sights were breathtaking. We saw the Hoover dam, flew into the canyon and had perfect views to the whole of Vegas.

Simple to book online. Contacted day before actual trip to confirm arrangements for the pick up and transportation to airstrip for Helicopter ride.. Upgraded to extended trip FOC due to insufficient numbers for original time! Staff and crew all very helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.
