Some visitors choose to discover Grand Canyon on a hiking trip; others prefer to observe it from the raft; some go skydiving to have a thrilling but quick-lasting look from above. All of these options provide a pretty much of experience. However, you won't embrace the whole picture unless you go on a helicopter tour. A well-measured aerial journey offers the most awe-inspiring views revealing hidden jewels of the natural wonder.
You can choose from several options and routes. It could be a half-day, or a full-day tour, with the picnic and champagne at the bottom of the canyon. Some tours also combine several activities such as rafting or a visit to West Canyon Skywalk. So you may select the package that suits you most regarding time, budget, and other preferences.
As you decide on a helicopter journey, you have to be aware of certain risks. Although the accidents are rare, it's not 100% safe. It's not any Disneyland ride, and the navigation low along the narrow winding gorge is rather complicated.
Helicopter tours operate all year round. Usually, they depart from Las Vegas.
