over the edge - helicopter & boat

Code: pww-5

This air and water tour is one of the most exhilarating in Grand Canyon National Park!

You will fly from the West Rim to a private landing spot on the Grand Canyon floor aboard a sightseeing helicopter taking in marvelous views enroute. This is the only area in the entire Grand Canyon where you can land at the bottom!

Once at the bottom of the Canyon, take a short walk to the banks of the Colorado River for a pontoon boat ride down the Colorado River.

This peaceful cruise offers great photography opportunities deep in the Grand Canyon. Your guide will provide a briefing on the history and geology of the Colorado River basin. Once you return from the boat ride, walk back to the landing spot, and depart back to Grand Canyon West airport and rim's surface via helicopter.

Combining both a water and air tour give you the most complete Grand Canyon experience.

After, take in the sights of the West Rim, the closest part of Grand Canyon National Park, to Las Vegas. Here, you enter the lands of the Hualapai tribe, a sovereign Indian nation that holds the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River as sacred.

The Hualapai share their culture, tribal heritage, and traditions at the Grand Canyon West. A self-guided Native American village tour is located at Eagle Point, home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a 70-foot horseshoe-shaped glass-bottom bridge extending out from the canyon. That and another viewpoint, Guano Point, where the historic remains of an aerial tramway enhance the surreal vantage point, offer amazing views in every direction. The viewpoints here are some of the most dramatic in the entire canyon.

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