The Grand Canyon is one of the most majestic places on the planet. Each year, more than five million people visit it. Most will see it from the edge or from one of the famed lookouts. Indeed, it’s an incredible sight. But you’re cheating yourself. The best views are from the air. And nothing gets you closer to the magic than seeing the Grand Canyon by helicopter.
There are two places in the canyon where you can take a helicopter ride: The West Rim and the South Rim. For Las Vegas travelers, the West Rim is your best option. There are no helicopter flights from Vegas to the South Rim – it’s too far. To do it, you must take an airplane flight or a bus ride and transfer to a helicopter. If you are coming up from Northern Arizona (Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff), I encourage you to rent a car and drive to the South Rim for this air tour.
