Comparing Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours

Author : Keith Kravitz   Top Author

Nothing can beat a Grand Canyon heli excursion of the National Park. Flights are a thrill a minute as well as take you to locations where few individuals have ever gone before. Assisting you get the journey of your desires, I've composed this quick post evaluating these types of fantastic air tours.

There are two types of heli excursions, ones that fly above the Grand Canyon and ones that land. Listed here are details:

Air-only trips take you over important areas of the canyon before returning to the originating airfield. Be prepared to spend up to 45 minutes hovering over the Park. West Rim flights are allowed to go below the rim, whilst South Rim flights tend to be restricted from doing that.

Sights you are able to expect to view on West Rim air travels consist of Lake Mead, the Hoover Dam Bypass, the Hoover Dam, a Joshua Tree Forest, the Colorado River, Guano Point, Eagle Point and also the Grand Canyon Skywalk.

South Rim points of interest consist of the Kaibab Plateau, the North Rim, Grand Canyon Village, Phantom Ranch, the Colorado River and the Dragoon Corridor.

Landing travels fly exclusively out of Las Vegas and just include the West Rim. The selection is awesome and includes:

Land at Bottom. Features a 4,000-foot descent to bottom for Champagne Picnic

Land at Bottom, Boat & Skywalk. Take a Colorado River boat ride before walking the amazing Glass Bridge.

Land at Bottom & Raft Trip. After going through the base, go to the base of Hoover Dam for smooth-water float trip down the Colorado.

Rim Landing. Land at top of rim and spend several hours exploring Guano Point, Eagle Point, Hualapai Ranch as well as Indian Village.

Rim Landing & Skywalk. Deplane at Grand Canyon west for unlimited access to the Sky Walk, which lets you walk 70 feet past the edge!

The South Rim is 270-plus miles east of Vegas, putting it out of the range of helicopters. Thus if you want to fly this rim, you need to get to Grand Canyon National Park Airport, AZ.

If you haven't changed into being an Internet shopper, get on board now. This is in which the savings are. I consistently find bargains that get me reductions as much as 35%. It's not for sub-par seats. This is for premium flights for which the "other guy" simply paid out the nose. Simply put, complete the transaction on a tour operator's website and then call them later on in case you need help. This stops them from implementing service fees as well as mark-ups.

I highly recommend you reserve your heli trip three days in advance of your preferred departure. These trips are very popular and frequently sell out. The only travelers I know who get same-day seating are the ones traveling by themselves, and even then it's a crap shoot. Do yourself a favor and book ahead of time.

I hope this assessment of Grand Canyon heli travels assisted you get closer to picking out the flight that best suits your needs. Key point to bear in mind is that landing tours are only obtainable at the West Rim. This information in hand, it's time to get airborne. Here's to having a superb experience that you'll take pleasure in throughout your life.
