Papillon Helicopters offers complimentary transportation between most major Las Vegas hotels and Papillon’s private helipad in Boulder City. Here, you’ll board a state-of-the-art touring helicopter—featuring wraparound windows that offer nearly 180º views, luxurious “theater-style” comfort seating, climate control, noise reduction, and perfectly choreographed music to match the natural wonders outside. For over an hour, you’ll soar above absolutely astonishing vistas: from the Hoover Dam, to Lake Mead, to the Grand Canyon’s West Rim itself (and so much more along the way). Once at the Canyon, your pilot will show you some of Grand Canyon West’s most famous and beautiful landmarks, including spectacular rock formations at Eagle Point and Guano Point. In addition, your entire tour is accompanied by fascinating and informative narration (available in multiple languages), pointing out geologic aspects of the scenery you otherwise might’ve missed, and filling in some of the history of this World’s Natural Wonder. After your flight, Papillon’s shuttle will drop you back at your hotel and you can continue your Vegas vacation on schedule!
Major Highlight: The Grand Canyon
On this air-only tour, you’ll have the opportunity to see the Grand Canyon like never before. Papillon’s helicopters will show you the Canyon from above, giving you an awe-inspiring sense of its incredible length and breadth. Moreover, these helicopters can also fly at a lower altitude than touring airplanes, meaning your pilot can steer you down below the Canyon’s West Rim to give you an entirely different and unique close-up perspective of the Canyon’s incredible cliff faces and rock formations—including the famously spectacular Eagle Point and Guano Point—many of which you simply can’t access via any other means of travel!
Is This the Tour for You?
A helicopter tour—especially a helicopter-only tour like Papillon’s Golden Eagle—probably isn’t the best bet for the traveler who gets airsick or dislikes flying. Also, please keep in mind that this tour does not include a landing at the Grand Canyon, or any additional non-aerial activities. Overall, this helicopter tour is perfect for the traveler who’s short on time and is looking to sit back, relax, and enjoy the most incredible views of Grand Canyon West available! This tour does not skimp on flying time—meaning you have access to the same amount of aerial splendor as lengthier tours of the West Rim, without missing the next point on your Las Vegas itinerary.
