Helicopter Tours: A Brief Introduction
Before the introduction of Grand Canyon helicopters, it was nearly impossible to plan a vacation from Las Vegas, Nevada that would include seeing the Grand Canyon. However now it is possible to enjoy the fun and excitement of Las Vegas and the adventure of a flight that will take you to the West or South Rim of the Canyon and give you a change to see one of the natural wonders worldwide and spend time exploring this beautiful region.
Helicopter tours can be booked for half-day to full-day trips. The flights give visitors the chance to see Hoover Dam, the Dragoon Corridor, Lake Mead, and much more as it makes its way to the West Rim. Making a full day of your trip will allow you to combine the fabulous views of this breathtaking region with a descent to the Canyon base and rafting, a river boat ride or a VIP Skywalk pass.
One of the things that most visitors to Grand Canyon National Park state after their initial trip is that they never realized the size of the Park, how much there was to see, and how they wished they had been able to spend more time exploring. The helicopter tours give you a chance to see the entire region and get a view of the wildlife, rock formations, and canyons that you would not be able to access by land.
The pilots on the tours have been specially trained and fly helicopters designed especially to accommodate the wind gusts in the canyon. When they stop at the West Rim to re-fuel, you will be able to enjoy snacks and explore the area before resuming your journey. The helicopters are well equipped and make a winter ride an unforgettable experience.
From the ground you can see only 30 miles of the Canyon. However, seeing the 130 miles of beauty and wilderness from the air gives you an opportunity to see many unique characteristics. Experiencing the flight through the Dragoon Corridor and emerging into the wide-open sky is an unbelievable experience that is unrivaled.
Booking early will assure that you are able to take full advantage of the holiday trip. The knowledgeable staff will give you important information and advice about what to expect and the best way to enjoy your trip. It will be important to let the staff know when you book the trip if there are any special needs that should be accommodated for the flight.
In most cases, the team will be able to meet the needs of guests or will offer options that will help them to enjoy the tour more thoroughly. The tour coordinator will give you information about the areas you will be visiting, the weather when you are going, how you should dress for the trip and areas of special interest that you will not want to miss while you are on your trip.
When you are planning a tour with Grand Canyon helicopters it will be helpful to talk to people who have taken tours to learn about what to expect on your trip. They will be able to share their experiences and tell you about some of the exciting sites you will see while you are in the air.
