Description

Discover the reason the Grand Canyon is considered the crown jewel of the United States.

This exhilarating air tour begins with an approximate 65-minute fixed wing flight over Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and the Mojave Desert. See the Colorado River from the sky as it twists and turns beneath you. Before long, the majesty of Grand Canyon National Park will come into view. Photographic opportunities abound as the Grand Canyon stretches from one horizon to the next. With gorges up to 11 miles wide and a depth of over 1 mile, the Grand Canyon offers visual richness that simply cannot be found elsewhere on earth. Here you will come face to face with ancient stone walls made up of amazing colors, textures, and monolithic towers that hold the history of the Earth.

A motorcoach transfer from the airport includes stops at Bright Angel Lodge and Mather Point, both offering fantastic canyon vistas. Guests will enjoy a free boxed lunch with plenty of time to hike along the rim and explore the local shops and antique buildings. Return to the airport via motorcoach and enjoy a scenic flight back to Las Vegas. Complimentary hotel pick-up and drop-off services from the Las Vegas terminal are included.
