Tours from Las Vegas helicopter ride through

Posted by rchelicop on October 12th, 2017

The great advantage of a helicopter ride through Las Vegas to the Grand Canyon is that there are several ways to land on the canyon floor. With all the options, you may have trouble choosing the best tour. Here is a little help in the form of my three helicopter tours, with which you can land up or down on the western edge.

Tours from Las Vegas

The West Rim is the only place in the canyon where helicopters can land. So, if you want to land or fly over the edge to the canyon floor, Vegas is the starting point of your journey. In contrast, South Rim tours are just transfers, as helicopters can not fly under the rim in this part of the canyon.


My best option for a West Rim tour is the basic landing tour. This tour is known as a champagne tour as it is served with a fun picnic that can be enjoyed on the canyon floor with champagne toast. During this tour, you can enjoy an exciting helicopter descent from 3500 feet to the canyon floor where your helicopter descends near the Colorado River.

This tour also comes in a deluxe version. This luxury tour is my second choice for a West Rim tour because it comes with some good benefits. The luxury tour stands out straight from the Las Vegas Strip, which is very convenient, and you'll get an additional pick-up and delivery service in a limo. You'll even fly with a luxury helicopter that will give you a quieter ride, more space in the spacious cabin, and you'll get the best view from the large 180 degree panoramic window.

My third recommended trip includes access to all the main attractions of the West Rim. Not only will you land on the canyon floor where you can take a boat trip on the Colorado River, you will also land on the edge so you can see the skywalk. Skywalk tickets are VIP so you do not have to waste your time. You will also have time to explore the area on foot, so that you can climb picturesque hiking trails and stop at the lookouts.

Experience the Skywalk

The Skywalk is a world-famous attraction and you do not want to miss your chance. The Skywalk is a large observation deck made of glass and steel so the floor is transparent so you can walk over the edge of the canyon and look at the foot of the canyon at 4000 feet deep. The view from the platform is one of the most incredible things you will experience in the canyon. The combination of fantastic views and thrilling adventures makes this attraction you'd like to see if you're going to the West Rim.

Some useful tips

The temperature in the canyon is about the same as in the summer in Vegas, so be prepared for the heat. They want to wear comfortable light clothing and lots of sunscreen. You can also protect yourself from sunglasses with a hat and sunglasses.
