Las Vegas to Grand Canyon Helicopter Tour

For one of the most incredible Grand Canyon experiences, visit by helicopter – direct from Las Vegas.

One of the USA’s most iconic natural wonders, the Grand Canyon’s majestic expanse has to be seen to be believed. Stretching 227 miles up from the northwest corner of the state of Arizona to the borders of Utah and Nevada, the Grand Canyon is up to 18 miles wide and up to 6,000 feet deep, and figuring out how exactly to get there can be as mind-bending as the site itself. That’s why we have partnered with Maverick to offer one of the most exhilarating and direct ways to visit the Grand Canyon, by helicopter.

On this family friendly excursion you will depart the famous Las Vegas Strip by ascending over the iconic Hoover Dam, one of America’s national treasures and a popular sightseeing attraction. You will then enjoy panoramic views of Lake Mead and the Mojave Desert as you head towards the Grand Canyon, as well as take in intimate views of Temple Rock, a unique formation on Lake Mead’s shoreline and Fortification Hill, an extinct volcano. The ground will drop away as you enter the Grand Canyon and fly for over 10 miles through this geological marvel. Contemplate the time-forged phenomena and be astounded by the beautiful coloration as the canyon walls surround on the helicopter’s descent 3,500 feet below the rim on the Hualapai Indian Territory. Maverick is the only tour operator allowed on this territory, boasting a private bluff and the area is breathtaking. Get out and explore – beverages and light snacks will be served some 300 feet above the mighty, winding Colorado River as you take in your otherworldly surroundings. Later, as you fly back through the Grand Canyon, you’ll also get to see the stunning red rock formations of the Bowl of Fire. You’ll conclude your adventure with an exciting flight over downtown Las Vegas and the Strip before landing right back where you started, full of unforgettable memories.
