Land on the Bottom of the Grand Canyon

The Grand Canyon West is the only area of the park where helicopters are able to land at the very bottom. The Grand Celebration helicopter tour sets off from the Las Vegas area and travels over the Mojave Desert, Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Colorado River. Upon arrival to the West Rim, your helicopter will descend 3,200 feet between the canyon walls and land on the floor near the Colorado River. You’ll have plenty of time to explore, take pictures, and enjoy a champagne toast amidst the most beautiful scenery in the United States. You also have the option to privatize your tour for just your party and add a flight over the Las Vegas Strip.
