Grand Canyon West Rim Skywalk Tours

“Suspended 40,000 in the air, I couldn’t help but pinch myself to make sure it wasn’t all a dream. As I peered down below me, through the translucent platform, all my senses came alive. The fierce hum of the Colorado River rushing under me, the warm, setting sun casting it’s shadow on the canyon walls - it’s a an experience everyone should have at least once!”
- Evelyn R

Why Take a Grand Canyon Skywalk Tour


  • Defy gravity as you walk out 70 feet past the rim of the Grand Canyon on a horseshoe-shaped translucent pathway.
  • The Skywalk, comprised of 44 glass-deck panels that cost $250,000 each, gives visitors the chance to stand nearly a mile over the Colorado River Valley.
  • Nicknamed the “Glass Bridge,” the structure is an architectural feat that can only be experienced in person.
  • Located in Grand Canyon West, the Skywalk is the closest, most accessible section of the Grand Canyon from Las Vegas.
  • Profiled by the National Geographic Channel, The Today Show and CNN, this engineering marvel is strong enough to hold the weight of seventy 747 passenger jets.

Picking the Best Grand Canyon Skywalk + Air Tour


While a walk down the impressive Skywalk is certainly one of the West Rim’s most luring features, there are several other incredible sights and activities to discover at Grand Canyon West.

Begin your adventure from Las Vegas as you climb aboard a helicopter or airplane. Fly over Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, the Mojave Desert and, finally, the enticing West Rim. After a breathtaking landing, head to the Skywalk. Peer through the translucent glass platform beneath your feet and feel the adrenaline build up inside you. For those looking to dive even deeper into West Rim, hop back in a helicopter and make the 4,000ft descent to the canyon floor! This top-to-bottom tour is the only way to fully experience the Grand Canyon.

Useful Information


Best time to visit the Grand Canyon Skywalk

Peak season for the Grand Canyon is during the summer months, from June to September. While these months attract large crowds throughout the park, the West Rim, including the Skywalk, remains significantly less crowded than the South Rim. Spring and fall are the most pleasant times to visit the Grand Canyon West Rim, with daytime temperatures at around 70 degrees F.

Grand Canyon West Rim weather

Given its close proximity to Las Vegas, weather at the West Rim is generally similar to that of Las Vegas. Spring and fall months average daytime temperatures of about 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit. Summer can get quite hot, peaking at 110 degrees F. During the winter, it can get quite chilly with daytime temperatures floating at around 40 degrees F. However, unlike the North Rim, the West Rim remains open year round, even during the winter.

Grand Canyon West hours

April - August: 7 am - 7 pm
September - March: 8 am - 6 pm

Is Skywalk safe?

Absolutely! In fact, the Skywalk can support the weight of 71 fully loaded 747 airplane. To put this into perspective, that’s equivalent to more than eight hundred 200 lb. people. It can also withstand winds up to 100 miles per hour and magnitude 8.0 earthquakes. Still not convinced? The red limestone that anchors the Skywalk can support 16,000 pounds of pressure per square inch.

Can I take pictures at the Skywalk?

Unfortunately, no. To protect the glass paneling from scratches, personal items including cameras and cellphones are not allowed on the Skywalk. But, you can purchase a souvenir photo from a professional photographer. You’ll also be required to wear fabric shoe covers to prevent scratching.

What is the Legacy Package?

Grand Canyon West is privately owned and operated by the Hualapai Tribe and requires the purchase of a Legacy Tour Package for entry. It includes a self-guided tour of all points of interest at Grand Canyon West, as well as unlimited use of the hop-on hop-off shuttle to Eagle Point, Guano Point and the Hualapai Ranch. If your Headout tour includes landing at the West Rim, it is safe to assume the tour price includes your Legacy Package. In addition, some tours include a meal coupon, which includes a meal at any of the on-site canteens, excluding the Skywalk Restaurant.

Grand Canyon Reviews


Cynthia Roberts

Best tour I’ve ever been on!

Flying over the Grand Canyon and then walking, mid air, out from the West Rim should be on everyone’s bucket list. Talk about food for the adventure junkie’s soul! I highly recommend just going all out with a flight from Las Vegas. While you can board a helicopter directly from the Grand Canyon, the views along the way are a whole experience of their own.

Hands down AMAZING

Really impressed with the entire tour - from booking to arriving back at my hotel in Vegas. This is my second trip to the Grand Canyon by air. I visited the South Rim my first time and while it was awesome, I wasn’t nearly as impressed as I was with the tour Headout hooked me up with. Everything was smooth as could be. Really recommend planning your tour through these guys as opposed to anyone else.
