Thrilling Grand Canyon Chopper Excursions From Las Vegas

Author : Keith Kravitz   Top Author

Plan to go to the Las Vegas for your vacation? It's a gorgeous city but remember your journey can't be comprehensive without a trip to the sensational canyon. There are numerous Grand Canyon helicopter trips from Vegas to West Rim, the best of which are the landing tours. Here's a quick run-down about this unique area of the National Park and the helicopter flights available.

The West Rim is situated on the Hualapai Indian Reservation. It is mainly popular for the Sky Walk, but it's furthermore the only location where you can ride a helicopter 4,000 feet to the bottom! Here it is possible to take pleasure in a luncheon or maybe a Champagne brunch. It is possible to furthermore enjoy the riverbank and check out the secrets of the ancient floor. You can update your Grand Canyon helicopter tour to incorporate a boat trip on the Colorado River. Yet one more choice you have is to decide on an excursion that accompanies the amazing Sky Walk, which offers one of the most spectacular views of the canyon.

Grand Canyon chopper tours are all-inclusive as well as include free-of-charge shuttle service to and from the majority of Las Vegas Strip hotels. Bottom-landing travels offer you lunch, plus there's a specialist pilot-guide to help you. These travels take off every day of the year, even on holidays. You can go for both sunrise and dusk journeys, as per your ease. Take a morning ride for a smoother voyage and spectacular views. Regardless of what time of day or which day of the year, there's a helicopter tour that's perfectly suited to meet your needs.

Chopper air-only travels offer unparalleled views of the canyon. However, if you wish a more in-depth experience, you need to pick a West Rim landing excursion. Let's face it, it's not every day that you get to fly over the West Rim, and landing-tours let you get the most from this opportunity. In my view, the best of these flights is the one that lands at Grand Canyon West as well as consists of the chopper ride to the bottom and Colorado River boat ride. Do that excursion and you will have experienced everything the National Park has to offer.

The journey over to the canyon is an event in and of itself. En route, you get to fly over Lake Mead, the largest man-made reservoir in the U.S., and also the Hoover Dam, probably the most iconic symbols of the American West. Furthermore, you'll also pass by Fortification Hill, Grand Wash Cliffs, the Colorado River, Guano Point and the Sky Walk. I contemplate each one of these sights a major bonus that make chopper rides that much more alluring.

I prefer helicopters to airplanes since the former flies at a lower height and thus provides you with better views. Further, choppers tend to be more maneuverable and allow pilots to hover over select points of interest as they see fit or vary the flight schedule to accommodate the interests of passengers.

Grand Canyon chopper excursions are a fantastic method to get one-to-one with the canyon. They are furthermore very popular, so it's imperative that you reserve your seat in advance. This is specifically the case with bottom-landing trips. I additionally suggest that you reserve your tour on the Internet. This is where the offers are. I regularly conserve up to 35 percent on select flights. You can, too. Travel websites these days are very user friendly. They are also safe hence you are able to make web based reservations with confidence. I bring this up because to be able to qualify for fantastic prices you will most likely have to complete the reservation on the vendor's Internet site. Make sure to pack your confirmation letter along with you - since you'll need to present it at check-in just before taking the most extraordinary quest of your lifetime!
