Itinerary

Start with pickup at your hotel in Las Vegas, and transfer to Henderson Executive Airport to board a 7-passenger helicopter.

Lift off for the flight, soaring over the Nevada desert to Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam, landmarks that are especially dramatic from the air. Hover above the Grand Canyon’s West Rim and then fly straight into the canyon, descending far below the rim to a landing point on a private bluff.

Snap photos of the Colorado River and the Grand Canyon’s colorful rock walls before enjoying a picnic of Champagne, crackers, cheese, vegetables, and fruit in the shade of a traditional Native American ramada shelter.

When it’s time to return to Las Vegas, the pilot will follow a different route, flying low over the Black Canyon and an extinct volcano. Upon arrival at the airport, a driver will meet you for return transfer to your hotel.

Awe inspiring experience

A wonderful trip down in to the Grand Canyon where we were had lunch with champagne. The views were amazing and unforgettable. The only downside was when the pilot asked for a tip although I was so impressed with the trip I gave him one.

I'm not aware it. Our price was for the flight and a picnic in the canyon only. Contact the helicopter company if you're unsure.
