Grand Canyon Helicopter Ride and Champagne Picnic
Approx. 3.5 hours hotel to hotel
Enjoy panoramic views of all the major landmarks between Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon including Hoover Dam, Lake Mead and the vast Mojave Desert before indulging in a champagne picnic in the canyon.
What to Expect On Your Grand Canyon Helicopter Ride:
- TRANSPORTATION PICKUP
To start your experience off right, we'll pick you up from your Las Vegas hotel in a stretch limousine* and bring you to our beautiful pre-flight lounge.
* Please note this is a shared limousine service with other Sundance passengers. Private limousines may be booked upon request for a nominal fee.
- HOOVER DAM
Your flight will take you past the 221 m high and 379 m long Hoover Dam, a modern marvel of engineering. The dam took 3,250,000 cubic yards of concrete to construct - enough to pave a two-lane highway from San Francisco to New York.
- MOJAVE DESERT
Traverse the beautiful mountain and sandscapes of the Mojave Desert. The Mojave appears harsh and barren from a distance, but a closer look reveals a wide array of habitats–mountains, valleys, springs, forests and wetlands–that shelter an abundance of plant, fish and animal species.
- LAKE MEAD
Cross the shimmering teal blue waters and stunning sandstone shorelines of Lake Mead on your way to the Grand Canyon. Formed by the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead is the largest reservoir in the U.S. in terms of capacity, and the largest man-made lake in the U.S. The lake is 112 miles long when full, has 759 miles of shoreline, and is 532 feet at its greatest depth. It is also home to thousands of desert plants and animals, adapted to survive where rain is scarce and temperatures can soar.
- COLORADO RIVER
Follow the winding path of the mighty Colorado River into the Grand Canyon. The river is 1,450 miles long and has a flow of 800 million gallons of water per hour.
- GRAND CANYON
Soar through the powerful and inspiring landscape of the Grand Canyon, one of the seven natural wonders of the world. The canyon overwhelms your senses through its immense size and unique combinations of geologic color and erosional striations. This epic canyon is 277 river miles long, up to 18 miles wide, and a mile deep. Because of our close relationship with the Hualapai Tribe, we're able to land down in the canyon where you can explore the landscape from the ground. This is the only area where landing is allowed in the canyon.
Toast your Grand Canyon adventure with a glass of bubbly in true Sundance style
- LIGHT SNACKS
Enjoy snacks from your own personal picnic basket, while taking in the magnificent sights 3,200 feet below the rim of the Grand Canyon. This light fare includes fruity snacks, a nutrition bar, and a snack mix.
- LAS VEGAS STRIP
Fly over the famous Las Vegas Strip! Past the Stratosphere Tower, Caesars Palace and hope for a glimpse of the Bellagio's fountains before spotting the skyline of New York-New York and the beam atop the Luxor pyramid.
- TRANSPORTATION DROP-OFF
We'll take you back to your hotel in style with plenty of time to enjoy the rest of your Las Vegas trip!
