Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters #1 Best Helicopter Tour

Embark on an adventure that encompasses both natural beauty and historical significance. Start with a helicopter flight to the Grand Canyon West Rim, with sights of the Mojave Desert, Hoover Dam, and Lake Mead along the way. Upon arriving at Grand Canyon West, your helicopter will descend 4,000 feet to the canyon floor and land near the Colorado River. Enjoy the scenary with many photo opportunities as well as a champagne toast and light picnic. After the Grand Canyon experience, you'll travel to Eldorado Canyon for a fully-guided tour of the Techatticup Mine.

While you venture through the mine, you'll learn about the miners who traveled to this area during Nevada's biggest mining boom. After learning about the site's historical significance, you'll tour the desert landscape on a Baja Jeep or ATV. Return to Las Vegas after an adventure-filled day in the beautiful and historic Grand Canyon and Eldorado Canyon.
