These tours take off from a couple of different places, and one of them is near the South Rim in Tusayan, AZ. Others depart from locations in the Las Vegas area. Vegas is situated closer to the West Rim and you can fly from Vegas to Grand Canyon West in 30 to 45 minutes by plane or chopper.

Helicopter Tours Of The Grand Canyon

Helicopters leaving from Vegas only do Grand Canyon West because of the distance to the South Rim. However, if you want to take a helicopter tour of the South Rim when you’re starting out in Vegas, all you have to do is take a plane to Tusayan and begin your tour. The airplane tours out of Vegas can be upgraded to include a helicopter tour of the South and North Rims.

West Rim and South Rim helicopter tours do air tours over the National Park, and if you depart from Vegas, you get the option of landing at the top and/or bottom of the Canyon. Included in all Vegas flights are such sights as Lake Mead and Hoover Dam. A fun landing tour package to the West Rim includes a helicopter descent to the canyon floor where you can enjoy a champagne picnic. It’s an experience you don’t want to miss, and if you can book a sunset flight, you will see some amazing views of the sun setting over the canyon.
