King of Canyons

Code: hlw-4

It is possible to see the most exquisite works of nature and the most creative works of modern man all within a couple of hours! Your Las Vegas helicopter adventure begins with a luxury transport from your Las Vegas Hotel to our exclusive Las Vegas VIP terminal near Harry Reid Airport. Then climb aboard our ultra-modern helicopters specially designed to be super comfortable and tailor-made for aerial sightseeing. You'll get the ultimate bird's-eye view of Hoover Dam - a Depression-era monument to human ingenuity and perseverance, Lake Mead - one of the largest human-made lakes in the world, and the volcanic graveyard of the Black Mountains - silent testaments to the volatility of Earth's past. It is there that you enter into the Grand Canyon and descend 3,200 feet below to a remote plateau next to the Colorado River.

After touching down on the floor of the Grand Canyon on Hualapai Indian Tribal Lands, you'll assemble with your fellow explorers under an authentic Native American ramada and enjoy a light picnic. You can even toast your journey with a glass of champagne. Take advantage of the opportunity to photograph unusual desert plants, rugged rock formations, and the Colorado River itself. After about 30 minutes on the bottom of the Grand Canyon, it's time to return to Las Vegas, but not until you enjoy another treat: aerial views of the world-famous Las Vegas Strip! If you think all the colors, lights, and over-the-top architecture looks incredible from the ground, it's even more spectacular in a helicopter. After your flight, you'll be transported back to your Las Vegas Hotel.

Available in Chinese - Mandarin & Cantonese, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, and Spanish.
