Grand Canyon Helicopters Give You A Spectacular View Of Natures Beauty-sorpack

Travel-and-Leisure When you take your next vacation to Las Vegas, you really should take one of the fun air tours from there to the Grand Canyon. Gazing down on the Grand Canyon as you circle over it from above is one of the most magnificent experiences you will have. If you have extra time, you should get one of the upgraded tours that includes a thrilling adventure such as a raft trip on the Colorado River, a 4×4 expedition, or a walk on the world famous Grand Canyon Skywalk. Flights Grand Canyon flights take off from Vegas 365 days a year. Grand Canyon helicopters that fly to the West Rim offer tours that last from three to seven hours. You can also charter a helicopter flight if you want, but it costs quite a bit to do that. Helicopters that fly out of Vegas only go to the West Rim. The South Rim is just too far away for them. However, all is not lost if you are in Vegas and really want to go to the South Rim. One thing you can do is book a plane tour to the South Rim that .es with a chopper tour of the canyon once you are there. You can be at the South Rim in under an hour by airplane and then you can see some spectacular scenic vistas during your helicopter tour. The West Rim has its own special attraction though because it is the only place in the National Park where helicopters can fly below the rim and land on the canyon floor. That’s exciting enough, but it also opens up some exciting possibilities, including smooth-water float trips down the Colorado River. Vegas Helicopter Tours Las Vegas helicopters fly out of several metro-area heliports. The ones located on the Strip are the easiest to get to from the major Vegas hotels. Those flights will cost you more than tours that leave from Boulder City, which is a 30-minute shuttle ride from the Strip. South Rim Helicopter Tours If you’ll be .ing from Phoenix, Sedona, Tusayan or Williams, AZ (or if you’ll be staying at one of the lodges in Grand Canyon Village), I re.mend taking one of the South Rim Grand Canyon flights. You will board your chopper at the Grand Canyon National Park Airport, which is situated in the tiny town of Tusayan near the main gates of the Park. You can choose to take a 30-minute or 50-minute tour of the South Rim. The half hour flight takes you over to the North Rim and back and flies over spectacular scenery. In addition to covering the same ground, the fifty-minute flight takes you all the way over to the eastern edge of the National Park too. The longer flight covers a lot of ground, in fact, you will fly over about 3/4 of the entire canyon! Booking Your Air Tour It is highly re.mended to get your seats early. I re.mend booking your flight at least a week before the tour date you want. By doing this, your tickets will be cheaper and you’ll have more flight times from which to choose (in my opinion, flights before noon and sunset flights are the best times of day for chopper tours). I also re.mend booking your flight online , but not with any of the big travel brokers. It is better to go to the tour operator’s website and buy your seats from them. The tour operators always have special promotions going on and they can offer you the lowest rates on your tour. Be sure to .plete your transaction through their online form. When you do that, you get the steeply discounted Inter. rate and you will save money on your tour! About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
