West Rim Tour

A Helicopter Flight Over the Grand Canyon

What is one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, large enough to be seen as spectacular from space, and is visited by five million people a year? The answer: The Grand Canyon, which has been a national park in the U.S. since 1919.

Grand Canyon National Park is almost the size of the state of Delaware with the Colorado River winding itself around the floor for 277 miles. At some places, the river is 18 miles wide and a mile deep. Take a helicopter flight over the Grand Canyon for an unforgettable experience. You will get more than just a bird’s eye view from the sky. The impressive vista reveals the immensity of the canyon and invites you to explore more.

After your helicopter flight over Grand Canyon, you may want to hike or explore the canyon. Some adventurers take a gentle water rafting excursion. Not sure what appeals to you? Read about the different Rims and then call a VegasDaze.com expert who can recommend a tour based on your wants.
  • The South Rim is the most crowded. Of the five million annual visitors to the canyon, 90 percent of them visit here. It is the easiest to get to and has an inn where you can spend the night. It is also open year-round. You can take a short hike into the canyon without trekking all the way to the bottom. Whether you take a short hike or backpack for overnight camping, be sure you take plenty of water and follow the recommendations of other experienced Grand Canyon hikers.

  • The North Rim is closed during the winter months and is more remote with fewer services. It also has fewer visitors allowing you to enjoy your visit more solitarily. Most tour companies, however, are unable to travel to this portion of the canyon. Although it may look like a short distance between the North and South rims, the drive around the canyon from one rim to the other takes about five hours.

  • The West Rim is located on Indian land and operated by the Hualapai Tribe. Brave tourists can venture 70 feet out over the canyon and peer 4,000 feet below through the transparent floor of a bridge called the Skywalk which opened in 2003. There is also a lodge and other services to help make your visit complete.
