The adventure begins with a limo ride from your Las Vegas hotel that takes you all the way to the helicopter terminal, which is located just a few short minutes from the Las Vegas Strip. Once you have boarded your state of the art helicopter, its up, up and away on a narrated tour of the Mojave Desert, the volcanic Black Mountains, Colorado River, Lake Mead and Hoover Dam.
Once you have flown over the Grand Canyon’s Western Rim (an area occupied by the Hualapai Indians for over one thousand years) you will then see a rugged side of the Grand Canyon that is entirely free of guardrails. Your return trip then takes you over the famous Las Vegas Strip.

IN FLIGHT NARRATION
The flight is timed perfectly with your music, pilot commentary and narration. Those who do not speak English proficiently or as a second language are provided with several different language options to choose from.
Your flight takes you past the 726 foot high Hoover Dam, which is also over 1,200 feet long and stands as an incredible engineering feat. The amount of concrete that was used to construct the dam could be also used to construct a two lane highway that stretches across the entirety of the United States.
The Mojave Desert offers a beautiful landscape to traverse. Don’t allow appearances to fool you, as a closer look will reveal a massive array of habitats (including wetlands and springs) that serve as crucial shelter for an abundance of animal species.
Crossing the sandstone shorelines and light blue waters of Lake Mead is one of the most intriguing aspects of your journey to the Grand Canyon. Formulated by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead still has the largest reservoir capacity in the country and is also the nation’s largest man made lake. The animals and plants who reside here have adapted to their surroundings and cannot wait for you to pay them a visit.
As you start to make your way closer to the canyon, you are able to follow the Colorado’s bending path and enjoy aerial views of a river that is over 1,400 miles long.
One of the world’s seven natural wonders, the Grand Canyon is a feast for the senses thanks to its immense size and erosion striations. At 277 river miles long, 18 miles wide, and a mile deep, there is nothing quite like the Grand Canyon. Fortunately for our clients, our close relationship with the Hualapai Tribe allows us to to land within the canyon and let explore the from the ground.
LAS VEGAS STRIP
Flying over the Las Vegas strip is an experience unlike any other that you will enjoy throughout the course of your lifetime. Catch a glimpse of the Stratosphere Tower, Caesars Palace and if you are fortunate, the Bellagio’s fountains will be in mid cycle during your trip. This is the only way to truly experience the astonishing beauty of the Las Vegas strip and appreciate its amazing glory.
LIMO DROP OFF
