What To Expect
Get picked up from your hotel in Las Vegas and head to the Boulder City terminal. After arrival and check-in, board a state-of-the-art Vistaliner airplane and take flight over the west rim of the Canyon. A two billion-year-old gorge eroded slowly by wind and water, the only way to fully take in the canyon’s grandeur is on a top to bottom tour! The West Rim is the only section of the Grand Canyon where you can fly to the bottom via helicopter. After arriving at the West Rim Airport, deplane the aircraft and board a helicopter. Experience a thrilling descent 4,000 feet below the rim, where a pontoon boat lies in waits to take you further in, along the winding Colorado River. Return to the top of the rim on the helicopter and get transferred on an air-conditioned motorcoach to Eagle Point and Guano Point. After some exploration of the eagle-like rock formations, enjoy a light meal at the edge of the rim before calling it a day!
Situated right across from Eagle Point, visit the West Rim’s exhilarating, human-made Skywalk. A tremendous, U-shaped glass bridge that juts out 70 feet from the canyon’s rim, feel the adrenaline as you walk along the platform, suspended 4,000 feet in the air.
