Famous Landmarks Flight & River Rafting Tour

by Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters Nonrefundable No booking or credit card fees
Price Not Available

See the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River from some incredible angles with a helicopter flight over the landscape and a rafting adventure through the waters. Soar over some of the Southwest's most beautiful natural and man-made sights before you tackle the Black Canyon by raft.

Your excursion begins with a ride that takes you from your hotel to a modern, luxurious helicopter made especially for sightseeing. As you take to the air, a narrated commentary shares the history of the landmarks you soar above, from incredible feats of engineering like Hoover Dam and Lake Mead, one of the world's largest manmade lakes, to some of the steepest cliffs in America at the Black Canyon of the Colorado.

After these beautiful landmarks, you get a look at the huge network of ancient ravines that form the Grand Canyon itself. Once you land on the canyon floor, visit the lands of the Hualapai Tribe and enjoy a light meal and a champagne toast under a traditional ramada.

Next, get ready for adventure as you meet your rafting guide at the base of Hoover Dam. Your excursion down the Colorado River takes you for 11 exhilarating miles (17 km), immersing you in views of the extraordinary Black Canyon before stopping to enjoy lunch on a riverside beach.

Your journey culminates at the relaxing Willow Beach Marina, where you can take a breather ahead of the return trip to your Las Vegas hotel.

The helicopter ride is spectacular and highly recommended. The rafting I thought was too long. To be three hours in full sun with no shade/canopy provided was almost unbearable. If you do, please ensure all bookings are recommended to take sunscreen, swimmers on (water is freezing but some braved it) and a towel to cover your body from the sun. They provide lots of cold water which was a saving grace.
