Indian Country Adventure with Helicopter


This excursion includes an airplane flight to the rim of Grand Canyon West plus a self-guided ground-tour – but the journey does not end there. Upon landing, you will board a helicopter and land at the bottom of the Grand Canyon, where you will have plenty of time to enjoy the sights before heading back up to the top. Don't forget to add the optional Skywalk to your adventure, the 10-foot wide, horseshoe-shaped glass bridge extending 70 feet out over the rim.

Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters #1 Best Helicopter Tour

The Indian Country Adventure with Helicopter is the ultimate way to experience all the Grand Canyon West has to offer. This tour starts with an airplane flight to the West Rim with views of Lake Mead, Colorado River and Hoover Dam.

Upon arrival, you will board a luxury helicopter with panoramic windows offering views of the canyon. You will descend 4,000 feet below the rim, to a private plateau next to the Colorado River. You will have time to explore and take pictures as you take in the majesty of the canyon's beautiful rock formations, before heading back up to the rim.

From there, guests will board a shuttle for the self-guided portion of the tour. Discover the Hualapai Nation as you visit popular viewpoints, which include Eagle Point and Guano Point. At Eagle Point, guests can access the one-of-a-kind 10-foot wide, horseshoe-shaped glass Skywalk platform, which rises 4,000 feet above the rim. Guano Point allows visitors to marvel at the brilliant colors adorning the two-billion-year-old walls of the canyon.

Guests can also purchase a meal at their convenience during their visit at the Grand Canyon. Return to your airplane for an equally scenic flight back to Las Vegas, where you will be transported back to your hotel.
