This thrilling tour is truly a one of kind experience. Travel in a custom 4X4 across the vast Mojave Desert where you'll see Hoover Dam and a Joshua tree forest prior to entering Grand Canyon West. The adventure continues with a helicopter flight from the rim, soaring 4,000 feet down into the canyon for an approximate 10-minute pontoon boat float on the mighty Colorado River. Upon returning to the Rim, your tour guide will take you to additional viewpoints and a BBQ lunch.
THE SKYWALK AT GRAND CANYON WEST: Enhance your experience with an optional stroll on the Grand Canyon Skywalk, a unique glass bottom, cantilever bridge, resting 4,000 feet above the Colorado River. This architectural marvel weighs over 1.5 million pounds, and was built to withstand an excess of 71 million pounds in weight on top of it. Each of the 46 panes forming the walkway are constructed of 5-layers of glass bonded together and laminated, weighing in at 1,200 lbs a piece, and making the glass incredibly strong while still providing a crystal-clear view of the canyon below. Tickets available for purchase at the Skywalk for an additional fee.
