Our guide to Grand Celebration Sunset Helicopter Tour
The inclusions for this Sunset Tour are exactly the same as the regular Grand Celebration Tour, but you’ll enjoy a return flight from the Grand Canyon when the setting sun casts an orange glow over this magical landscape.
The stone of the Grand Canyon reflects a myriad of colours as the day goes on, but this is definitely the best time to see it; don’t forget your camera!
Board your helicopter and soar over Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as you head to the Grand Canyon West Rim. As the flight nears your final destination, enjoy spectacular views of the volcanic Black Mountains, Grapevine Mesa and then head across the Grand Wash Cliffs, entering the Grand Canyon West.
Here you experience an incredible descent through 4,000 feet into the depths of the mighty Canyon, touching down by the banks of the historic Colorado River.
During your 30-minute stay on the canyon floor you will be served a delightful champagne picnic meal, served under a 'Ramada', an authentic Hualapai Indian shelter.
You then enjoy a sunset flight back to Las Vegas when the setting sun casts a warm lazy glow over this magical landscape.
Daily, year round including pick-up from Las Vegas Hotels.
Departure times vary between 2.45pm in the winter and 6.30 pm in the summer.
About four hours from hotel to hotel. Flights to the Grand Canyon are about 35 minutes each way.
