What to Expect
Meet a driver at select Las Vegas hotels, and then transfer to a plane that’s equipped for a comfortable trip to the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. Soar over Nevada and Arizona’s vast desert wilderness and touch down for a ground tour into Grand Canyon National Park. Pause for a gourmet boxed lunch at Bright Angel Lodge, check out some of the National Park’s overlooks and walking trails, and browse the shops around El Tovar Lodge. If you've selected the helicopter flight, lift off again to see the Tower of Ra, Dragon Corridor, and Kaibab National Forest, with the Colorado River far below. Get an entirely different perspective on the desert terrain on the return flight to Las Vegas. The day ends with transfer to your original departure point.
