The airport offers numerous activities, which include helicopter tours serving as the main base for incoming as well as outgoing air traffic from the South Rim.

Normal air tours leave the airport and directing to the eastern portion of the Grand Canyon. The amazing tour include passing through the Zuni Point and Zuni Corridor, and directing over the Painted Desert, Desert View Watchtower, as well as the Navajo Indian Reservation located near the Colorado River.

The helicopter will bank this time, passing through majestic Temple Butter, prior to flying the North Rim, wherein tourists will be delighted with the fascinating sceneries of the Kaibab National Forest and the Kaibab Plateau.

Grand Canyon Deals: 7 Reasons for Buying a South Rim Helicopter Tour

The majority of Grand Canyon tours let you sample the National Park. If you are the type of person who wants to see as much of the South Rim as possible in a day, you’ve got buckle up and get airborne. To get you off the ground, here are seven reasons why riding a helicopter gets the job done.

1. It’s the fastest way to see the National Park. All helicopter flight plans follow this route: South Rim, the Gorge, North Rim, and back to Grand Canyon Airport. During this 30-to-40 minute flight, you’ll see:

-The Kaibab Plateau
-The Colorado River & Little Colorado River
-The Dragoon Corridor
-Grand Canyon Village
-Phantom Ranch
-Bright Angel Trail
-The San Francisco Peaks (Humphrey’s Peak is the highest in Arizona)

This is only a smidgen of what you fly over.

2. It’s the best way to enjoy a South Rim sunrise and/or sunset. This is the most incredible thing you can see at the Park. I strongly suggest you reserve your seats in advance, especially during summer when seats sell out fast. Because of their popularity, these flights are labeled “premium” and cost more than others.

3. It’s safe. Of the three helicopter companies that fly the South Rim, there’s never been an accident. Further, a lot of companies are flying the robust EcoStar 130, a state-of-the-art chopper that’s been designed from nose to tail for sightseeing.

4. It’s inexpensive. Trips start out around $ 130 per person. Upgrading to an EcoStar 130 (luxury sightseeing helicopter) will run you around $ 160. Book online to get the lowest price. Prices and availability are subject to change.

5. The aerial views here are some of the best in the U.S. Sitting at about 7,000 feet in elevation, the rim is pancake-flat and covered with pine forest. To get clear views, you have to get to the rim’s edge. Flying, its all sky above and Canyon below.

6. Pilots make the best guides. These guys fly the Canyon daily and know it like the back of their hands. Helicopters come with two-way communication systems and personal headsets that allow you to talk to your pilot and fellow passengers.

7. It’s thrilling. Helicopters take off from Grand Canyon Airport at 200 miles per hour then head through the Dragoon Corridor until turning back at the North Rim. Highly maneuverable, these aircraft descend, ascend, and turn with ease. Nothing comes close to the thrill of hovering in the Dragoon Corridor, the widest, deepest part of the canyon.

Helicopter tours average more than 30 minutes in the air and depart frequently from the airport in Tusayan, located just outside the Park’s main entrance. No helicopters fly from the South Rim to the West Rim. Nor are their direct helicopter flights from Las Vegas to the South Rim. To get here from Vegas, you must book an airplane or bus tour and transfer to a helicopter.

The Grand Canyon is an overwhelming experience. It’s 277 miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and covers up 1,900 plus square miles. My suggestion is to view the Park by Grand Canyon helicopter and then than explore it by foot, possibly going beneath the rim on one of the easy access trails. This combination of air and ground will make sure that you see as much of the Canyon as you can in a limited amount of time.

Grand Canyon Tours: 7 Reasons to Take a South Rim Airplane Tour

Grand Canyon South Rim airplane tours are by far the best way to see as much of the National Park as possible. Enticing? Here are seven more reasons why this trip should be at the top of your “must-do” list:

1. No other tour gives you this much canyon! Leaves from Grand Canyon Airport, located just 10 minutes from the park. Flight goes east along the South Rim, where you’ll see Zuni Point, the Zuni Corridor (where the Little Colorado joins the Colorado River), the Desert Watchtower, the Painted Desert, and the Navajo Indian Reservation. And that’s just mid-way. On the way back, you’ll follow the isolated North Rim before heading into the Dragoon Corridor, the deepest, widest part of the canyon. What you will see in 50 minutes would easily take several days on the ground.

2. Large, comfortable Vistaliner aircraft are flown on this route. This aircraft is not a bi-plane. It’s a twin-engine, commercial-class aircraft that seats 19 people. Further, they have been built from the start for sightseeing and sport large windows, lounge-style seats, and headsets for each passenger. Even the wings have been elevated so as not to obstruct your view. The aerodynamics of these planes is such that you are guaranteed the smoothest flight possible.

3. The airplane flight is the fastest way to reach Grand Canyon National Park from Las Vegas. Flight time is just 45 minutes. How does this stack up to other modes of transportation? The bus, for instance, takes 5.5 hours. Your flight includes Lake Mead and Hoover Dam as it follows the Colorado River to Grand Canyon Airport, AZ. This tour comes with a bus trip to the South Rim and a box lunch. For more aerial thrills, add a helicopter ride to your package.

4. You have an option to include a no-rapids float trip on the Colorado River. This journey leaves from Grand Canyon Airport and heads east along the canyon’s rim to Glen Canyon Dam in Page, AZ. Here you’ll hop a pontoon raft and begin the 15.5-mile float trip to historic Lee’s Ferry. Runs from late March to November. Open to kids four years and older.

5. The flight includes a trip narration that’s been translated into 16 different languages. German, Spanish, French, Japanese, Chinese…it’s all here. The Grand Canyon’s history, science, and landmarks are all revealed in this unobtrusive narrative. You’ll know as much as a Park Ranger when you deplane.

6. These flights are safe. Two pilots, each certified by the FAA, fly every South Rim airplane tour. Planes are equipped with a TCAS (Traffic Collision Avoidance System) and a GPWS (Ground Proximity Warning System). The airspace above the Grand Canyon is strictly regulated with all sightseeing flights operating under the same FAA rules that apply to commercial charter flights. It doesn’t get any safer than this.

7. It’s priced right. Tours start at about $ 120 per person. That’s a major deal considering how much Grand Canyon sightseeing you get. For the best deal, get your flight on the Internet. As a travel reviewer, I order tickets regularly online. I can tell you from personal experience that it’s safe and secure. And all of my reservations have been recorded correctly.

Grand Canyon airplane tours cover more of the canyon than any other form of transportation. You will see three of the rims as well as Glen Canyon Dam and the Painted Desert. No other tour delivers half as much. Your safety is job one, too. From professionally trained pilots to the state-of-the-art Vistaliner aircraft, you’re cleared for take off. Definitely book your tour on the internet and look to pay about $ 120 per person. Ready to take to the skies? Do it aboard a South Rim Vistaliner aircraft. It’s the ultimate way to experience this natural wonder.

Grand Canyon Tours – 7 Things You Need To Know Before Taking A South Rim Bus Trip

The Las Vegas Grand Canyon South Rim bus is regarded as the economical way to get to the national park. You don’t sacrifice comfort, either, especially when you travel on one of the new luxury buses that run this route. Before you climb aboard and settle into your plush seat, here are seven things you need to think about before you hit the road:

1. The South Rim is 270 miles away from Vegas and takes 5.5 hours to reach by bus. Tours include up to three hours at the rim. Travelers return to their Strip hotel around 9 p.m. Conservatively, budget 15 hours for this trip.

2. Review your itinerary and see if it includes a stop at the second-tallest bridge in the U.S. The new Mike O’Callaghan – Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge opened in October 2010 and it’s a sight to behold. Even better is walking across it. The thrill comes from being suspended 900 feet above the Colorado River. And the view of Hoover Dam is incredible.

3. Make sure your tour includes lunch. This is a long trip. Breakfast will get you as far as Kingman, AZ (make sure to load up on snacks here). The typical box lunch is OK for lunch. I recommend satisfying your hunger at the restaurant in the Bright Angel Lodge, where the servings are huge and delicious.

4. Dress appropriately. During summer, bring a hat, sunscreen, lots of water, and loose clothing like long-sleeved shirts and pants. A windbreaker comes in handy, too. South Rim winters are cold, even when the sun is out. I recommend you dress in layers for comfort and warmth. Bring a hat and/or beanie, scarf, gloves, and a medium weight jacket. Wear sturdy shoes and get a pair of YakTrakz walker crampons to beat the ice.

5. Get a copy of “The Guide.” This is a fantastic publication put out by the Park Service. It’s updated every quarter and contains all the information you need about the Park’s history, facilities, museums, restaurants, gift shops, and the free shuttle bus system. Think of it as the park’s “bible.”

6. Go to only the best lookouts. The very best ones are Mather Point, Yaki Point, Yavapai Observation Station, and Hermit’s Rest. Do sunrise at Mather and Sunset at Hopi Point. Directly behind the Bright Angel Lodge is the Rim Trail. It’s flat, makes for a great stroll, and the views of Indian Gardens and Phantom Ranch are phenomenal.

7. Remember: What goes down must come up. South Rim trails are world-class. But they are steep. I would recommend taking a leisurely 30-minute stroll down and then turning back. Over the summer, bring lots of water and a salty snack like trail mix during the summer. Take lots of breaks going up. There’s no rush. Stand to the side to let mule trains pass.

South Rim bus tours from Las Vegas are a hit with Las Vegas travelers. And for good reason. It’s cheap, includes lunch and all park entrance fees, and its done on a state-of-the-art luxury bus. It’s also a sightseeing paradise. On the way, you’ll see such western icons as Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Kaibab Plateau, and the Colorado River. If you are looking for an affordable, fun way to do the South Rim, this bus trip is absolutely the way to go.

Bring a windbreaker if you have one. South Rim winter’s are much chillier than exactly what you’ll experience in Vegas. I suggest you wear layers for comfort and heat. Bring a hat and/or beanie, scarf, gloves, and a medium weight jacket. Place on a set of sturdy shoes or boots. A set of YakTrakz anti-slip walker-crampons are a terrific way to deal with icy conditions. 5. Make sure to your issue of “The Guide.”The Park Service puts out this splendidly useful publication.

Upgraded quarterly, the newspaper knows about Park history, museums, gift shops, dining establishments, the best view points, and a map of the complimentary shuttle system. In my viewpoint, it’s the key that unlocks all the Park’s fantastic features. 6. Not all lookouts are created equivalent. Time is minimal and you wish to ensure you see the most-famous viewing points.

My ideas include Mather Point, Yavapai Observation Station, Hermit’s Rest, and Yaki Point. Do daybreak at Mather and Sundown at Hopi Point. The view from the Rim Path behind Intense Angel Lodge is likewise excellent(listed below you’ll see Indian Gardens and a tiny bit of Phantom Ranch). 7. Keep in mind: Exactly what decreases need to show up. South Rim routes are first-rate. But they are steep. I recommend taking a leisurely 30-minute walk down and

then turning back. Over the summer season, bring great deals of water and a salty treat like trail mix throughout the summer. Take lots of breaks increasing. There’s no rush.
