Our guide to King of Canyons Sunset Helicopter Tour with Canyon Landing

Enjoy a breathtaking helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon, one the world’s most impressive and best known natural wonders before returning at sunset to fly over the famous Vegas strip!

You will be collected from your Las Vegas hotel in a limousine to be transferred to McCarran Helicopter Terminal ready for your Grand Canyon Helicopter flight which passes over the impressive Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the epic Canyon itself.

The landscape below transforms from salt marshes to extinct volcanoes as you journey towards the highlight of the tour, and soon you are descending into a stunning valley for a breathtaking final approach to the landing zone at the West Rim.

Once on the ground, you will have around 30 minutes to eat a picnic lunch, sip a champagne toast and pose for some breathtaking photo’s backdropped by the stunning surrounds before your flight ascends the 4000 feet canyon walls for your journey home. 

The time of the return flight is scheduled to coincide with the setting sun culminating in a swoop across the strip itself - a kaladiescope of neon-colour, non-stop action and man-made splendour.
