Airplane Tours from Las Vegas
The Grand Canyon is one of the most photographed natural landforms in the world. Magazines and museums around the world have allowed people to gaze upon the brilliant red canyon walls, the sun reflecting off of the Colorado River, and the foliage and animals that inhabit the land. When you take one of Papillon's airplane tours from Las Vegas you can see all of these magnificent aerial perspectives in person. From the air you can see across the vast expanse of the Grand Canyon and straight down to the canyon floor where the mighty Colorado River has flowed for millennia. On an airplane tour from Las Vegas, you can take professional-level photos of the canyon, too!
Because our Vistaliner airplanes can seat up to 17 passengers, our variety of different airplane tours from Las Vegas are ideal for groups. From conference teams to wedding parties, families and beyond, your group can experience the thrill of the Grand Canyon together. First, our complimentary shuttles will pick you up from your Strip hotel and transport you safely to our airport terminal in Boulder City. From there your party will board one of our state-of-the-art aircraft and take flight!
Our tour options include airplane tours from Las Vegas to the South Rim and to the West Rim of the Grand Canyon. No matter which rim you decide upon your trip will be filled with spectacular views and multiple lookout points. You will see the crystal waters of Lake Mead unfold before you, the Tillman-O'Callaghan Bridge, and the Hoover Dam before entering the expanse of the Mojave Desert. Relax and watch the desert landscape pass you by as the winding of the Colorado River guides you to the Grand Canyon.
Flying over the South Rim, you can see the Kaibab National Forest spread out before you. This vast collection of tree species are home to many kinds of woodland animals - if you're lucky, you might get to see some elk, a turkey, or even a black bear from your airplane window! When you land at the South Rim terminal a shuttle will take you to the Grand Canyon National Park, where you can enjoy sights of the canyon's magnitude on foot. Several barrier-free lookout points allow visitors to venture out even further out onto the canyon ledges if they wish. The South Rim is the most visited area of the canyon for one reason: whether on the ground or in the sky, these are the most beautiful sights the canyon has to offer.
The West Rim of the canyon features several distinct lookout points, all of which are visible from the air on your airplane tour from Las Vegas. Upon landing start your adventure off with a trip to Hualapai Ranch, an Old Western town complete with cowboys and Indians. Then visit Guano Point and make the short climb to the summit for 360-degree views of the canyon. The highlight of your West Rim ground tour will undoubtedly be the Skywalk Bridge. This massive glass-bottomed bridge extends 70 feet past the canyon's edge, allowing guests to gaze almost a mile downward to the canyon floor. Directly in front of the Skywalk is an enormous stone formation shaped like a massive eagle - aptly named Eagle Point. After a long day on foot, return to our West Rim terminal where our comfortable aircraft will be waiting to take you back to Las Vegas.
Our airplanes are completely designed with our guests' comfort and sightseeing needs in mind. First class seating provides ample space for each passenger to sit comfortably and gaze out the enlarged Vista View windows, designed specifically for taking photos. The climate-controlled cabin lets you unwind and enjoy the flight no matter what time of year you're visiting. Each seat is equipped with headphones providing narration in 12 languages so you can enjoy music and learn the history of the landmarks beneath you.
