Thanksgiving Holiday Las Vegas Chopper Rides to the Grand Canyon

Travel & Tourism,Recreation & Leisure
If you're looking for something different to do on your Thanksgiving holiday, why not take a helicopter tour from Vegas to the Grand Canyon?

Vegas is the perfect place to start your tour since there are tours leaving from there daily. The Canyon is only about an hour's flight time from the city. However, these tours are quite popular, so they fill up fast. Therefore, book your tour as soon as possible while there are still seats available.

Tour Options

When you fly out of Vegas, you get to see a lot more than just the Canyon. For instance, you'll fly over Lake Mead and the Hoover Dam. The tour then flies over the Canyon and circles back to the city, or the helicopter lands at the West Rim. Being able to land at the Canyon is one of the best things about flying to the West Rim.

You can book a tour that lands on top of the rim or on the bottom. If you fly to the bottom of the Canyon, you will land beside the Colorado River. There you can enjoy a scenic Champagne picnic and even take a boat ride along the river. While it is an amazing experience to see the Canyon from the air, it is equally amazing to see the towering walls from the river.

If you pick a landing tour that sets down on top of the rim, you can hike on a trail or add on tickets to the Skywalk. The Skywalk is a massive structure that juts out 70 feet beyond the edge of the rim. Its glass floor sits 4000 feet above the Canyon bottom. It's an exhilarating experience like you're suspended on air, so you don't want to miss it.

Upgrade To A Deluxe Tour

The tours that fly out of Vegas are available in basic and deluxe packages. The basic tours cost less, but the deluxe tours are worth the extra expense if you can afford it. For one thing, the deluxe tours use newer sightseeing helicopters. They use EcoStar 130 helicopters. The offer a quiet ride and are much more comfortable with their roomy cabins and stadium-style seats. However, the best thing is the huge viewing window. It wraps around the helicopter so you have completely unobstructed views.

Since the weather is getting chilly, be sure to dress appropriately for your Thanksgiving tour. Dress in layers, so you can remove your jacket when the Canyon heats up later in the day. The weather at the West Rim is very similar to the weather in Vegas, so that gives you an idea on how to dress.

Buy Your Tour Online

Buying online is the best way to get your tour. It's easier to book that way, plus you'll get a better deal on the price. When you book on the tour company's website, you can bypass third party commission fees, which gives you more money to put towards a better tour. Just remember to buy your tour early, because the Thanksgiving holiday is a busy time for touring Vegas and the Canyon. Try to get your seats at least two weeks ahead of time if possible.

Wrapping Up

Taking a trip to Vegas that includes a tour of the Canyon is a great way to make special Thanksgiving memories. Just remember to buy your tour early and do it online, also try to book a deluxe tour if you can. Deluxe tours are the most comfortable and they come with plenty of upgrades so you can fill your day with adventure. Plan your trip now since Thanksgiving is almost here.
