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.
You have three options when choosing what time of day you'd like this Extended flying tour of the Grand Canyon
For those who like to watch the sunrise, to grab the day with both hands, then the Early Bird is the one for you
The standard is for those who have partied appropriately the night before and would like a more sedate time to visit this wonder of the world.
Whilst for those who seek sunsets, or possibly have gone hard and didn't go home the night before, try this sunset flight and see the canyon in a totally different light.
