Grand Canyon Helicopter Cost FAQs
How much does it cost to ride a helicopter in the Grand Canyon?
The price range to fly in a helicopter from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon varies. In general packages range from about $400 to up to about $750 and these packages include more than just the flight; they also take into account ground transport, entrance fees, and extra activities. If guests only have a few free hours, Papillon offers the Golden Eagle Air Tour which takes guests from Las Vegas to the West Rim on a compact, 3.5- hour round trip adventure.

How long does it take to get to the Grand Canyon by helicopter?
Papillon flies daily helicopter tours from Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon West Rim. That 130-mile trip takes approximately 45 minutes. The South Rim, where Grand Canyon National Park is headquartered, is a bit further away, about a 1 hours and 15-minute trip, and requires transport on a sightseeing aircraft from Las Vegas.
Is it free to visit the Grand Canyon?
No. Both the National Park Service, which administers the South and North Rim, and the Hualapai Tribe, which owns and operates the West Rim, charges entrance fees. At the West Rim, if you are not booking a tour through Papillon, you’ll pay a stand-alone entry fee to enter the West Rim. Since the West Rim is not inside the Grand Canyon National Park, all visitors must pay the fee and National Park passes are not valid. Current fees are listed here. Admission to Grand Canyon National Park is for seven days and includes both the North Rim and South Rim. Current fees are listed here.

Yes! Flying with Papillon on a Grand Canyon helicopter tour makes your trip to this natural wonder even more spectacular.

Are helicopter tours worth the money?
A helicopter tour is the perfect way to make memories that last a lifetime during your Grand Canyon or Las Vegas vacation.
