Best Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours Over the Halloween Holiday Weekend

Travel & Tourism,Recreation & Leisure
Halloween is coming up quick, and if you're tired of the same old trick-or-treating, then it's the perfect time to plan a short vacation before the weather turns too cold. If you need an idea on a fun thing to do, why not take an air tour of the scenic Grand Canyon?

These tours depart from Tusayan in Arizona, and Boulder City and Las Vegas in Nevada. Flights are operational as usual on Halloween, in fact, the air tours operate every day except Christmas Day. October is a great time of year to tour the Grand Canyon, and because of that the tours will fill up fast, so you want to book your tour as soon as possible.

Helicopter Tours Departing From Vegas

If you take a helicopter tour that lifts off from Boulder City or Las Vegas, then you will fly to the West Rim. The West Rim is a lot of fun because you can raft along the smooth waters of the Colorado River and walk out on the massive glass Skywalk. Of course, you'll have to take a landing tour if you want to add some fun adventures to your flight package. Another good thing about going to the West Rim is that it's the only location at the Grand Canyon where helicopters can fly down to the Canyon floor and land.

The air tour is a lot of fun in its own right, even if you don't add on a landing adventure. Your flight gives you many scenic views, you'll even get to see the Hoover Dam and Lake Mead. There are so many amazing sights to see at the Grand Canyon, the only way to appreciate them all is to take a helicopter tour.

However, if you want some adventure, then you should consider a landing tour. Landing at the Canyon enhances your tour, and you won't miss anything on the aerial portion of the tour since the choppers follow the same flight path as the helicopters that fly on the air-only tours. Besides, you wouldn't want to go to the West Rim and miss your chance to stand 4000 feet above the bottom of the Canyon on the glass Skywalk. While the view from the air is amazing, you'll also be amazed at the view of the Canyon walls while floating along the Colorado River when you add on a boat tour. You'll be able to pick the adventures you're most interested in and create a tour package you'll enjoy.

One of the bottom landing tours includes a Champagne picnic so you can toast your thrilling descent to the Canyon floor and the flight of a lifetime.

Touring The South Rim

Even though you can't take a landing tour at the South Rim, there are plenty of other reasons to go there.

One of the South Rim tours flies you over to the North Rim. The North Rim is interesting because it is so remote, in fact, it is so remote that it is one of the least traveled sections of the Grand Canyon National Park. There is also a longer, 50-minute flight you could book that lets you see the national park lands over to the eastern border in addition to exploring the North Rim. When you take the 50-minute tour, you'll get to fly over nearly 3/4 of the whole Grand Canyon National Park. You'll see so many amazing sights that the extra cost of taking the longer tour seems very worthwhile.

Tour Helicopters

Tour operators use different aircraft on these tours, so if you want the smoothest ride, you should book a tour on a deluxe chopper. The EcoStar 130 helicopter is used on all of the deluxe tours. The EcoStar is designed for sightseeing, so it has roomier seats with more personal space, plus the cabin is a lot quieter, in addition, the huge windscreen wraps around the front of the chopper so you have fantastic views with no obstructions to get in the way.

Another benefit of taking a deluxe tour out of Vegas, is that your chopper will lift off from The Strip, and you'll get complimentary ground transportation in a limousine. Compare that to taking a basic tour, which requires a shuttle bus ride to Boulder City where your chopper departs.

Paying more to upgrade to a deluxe tour means you will receive the most convenience, comfort, and views on your tour. for that reason, you should book a deluxe tour if you can. However, there is no reason to be concerned if you need to book a basic tour, because a basic tour of the Canyon is an experience you'll never forget.

Wrapping Up

Halloween is the perfect time to squeeze in one last vacation before the winter holidays. There are so many tour options, you'll be able to find something that's a perfect match for your interests and budget. Also, book your tour now, or it might be sold out if you wait. Book your tour online too, so you can use the low Internet rate and get a great deal on a fun holiday adventure.
