Your Grand Canyon helicopter tour will begin as you fly over the beautiful Lake Las Vegas, Lake Mead, the world-famous Hoover Dam and Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano. Along the way you’ll see breathtaking scenery and wildlife of the Southwest.
Maverick Helicopters® will descend and land 3,500 feet into the Grand Canyon in Hualapai Indian Territory. You will be served champagne and beverages some 300 feet above the mighty Colorado River surrounded by one of the greatest natural wonders of the world.
You will journey back through the Grand Canyon and land on the West Rim, where you will enjoy the spectacular views at Eagle Point and receive a brief introduction to the Hualapai Indian legends and culture. Then you’ll head to Guano Point, a breathtaking observation spot overlooking the Grand Canyon where you will be served a light meal.
The Grand Canyon Skywalk, the new glass bridge attraction, is an optional activity on this tour. Additional activities can be arranged when you arrive at Grand Canyon West by visiting the concierge desk.
After your stay at the West Rim, you will set out towards Las Vegas through the Bowl of Fire and conclude the journey with a flight over the Las Vegas Strip.
The vision of the Skywalk was to enable visitors to walk beyond the canyon walls, becoming surrounded by the Grand Canyon while standing at the edge of a glass bridge. This glass bridge is suspended more than 4,000 feet above the Colorado River on the very edge of the Grand Canyon’s West Rim. The Skywalk tickets can be purchased directly through Maverick Helicopters®.
