Las Vegas Tour: Grand Canyon Helicopter Flight and Colorado River Float
After hotel pickup, board your state-of-the-art helicopter for a 60-minute (round-trip) scenic air tour of the Grand Canyon West Rim. Your flight will take off from Boulder City, where builders of the Hoover Dam (formally the Boulder Dam) lived during the dam’s construction in the 1930s. Enjoy panoramic, 180-degree views of the impressive Hoover Dam, the bypass bridge and Black Canyon, and fly past the extinct and colorful volcano, Fortification Hill. Then descend beneath the rim of the Grand Canyon as you fly over the mighty Colorado River, past million-year-old geological rock formations. Make sure to have your camera ready, as around every corner you’ll see cathedral buttresses and pillars with amazing natural vivid colors. After leaving the Grand Canyon, enjoy views of other natural wonders in the wilderness of the rugged Mojave Desert. Upon landing in Boulder City, take a short drive down to the Colorado River launch area for your river float at the base of the Hoover Dam and the newly constructed bypass bridge. Here youll be greeted by your friendly guide, who will help you board your comfortable river raft. Float down the river and through the Black Canyon, with high walls that will leave you breathless! Keep your eyes open for desert big horn sheep, osprey and great blue heron in their natural setting. The raft stops at a secluded beach on the river so you can cool off in the refreshing clear waters. You can also enjoy your picnic box lunch on the beach while taking in the sights and sounds of Black Canyon. Your trip ends on the Arizona side of the river at Willow Beach. Youll have the chance to shop for souvenirs before returning to your Las Vegas hotel.
