An exclusively arranged tour that allows you to personally and intimately experience the raw majestic beauty of Grand Canyon West Rim along with the culture of its local inhabitants, the Hualapai Indians, first hand. Along the way, travel across the Hoover Dam Bridge and wind your way through the vast rugged desert wilderness en route to one of the "7 wonders of the world", the Grand Canyon. This tour will take you off the main highways and cruise amid 21 miles of one of the world's largest and oldest Joshua tree Forests. As you get close to you destination, enjoy the sight of high cliffs and canyon walls before arriving at the Hualapai Indian Reservation. From there freely roam and explore the West Rim or upgrade to the other packages for even more ways to enhance the already fantastic experience. With many options to choose from, let us custom tailor the tour to your liking and make it a trip of a lifetime.
- Vaccination certificate or a negative nucleic acid test within 3 days before the departure date.
Famous Viewpoints of West Rim:
The cliffs of the Grand Canyon West Rim can be likened to wood chopping, but elevated to a terraforming scale. You can almost make out where the axe falls from the gash-like swaths of seemingly bottomless valley. The most prominent of such is eagle-shaped and how Eagle Point came to be named. According to traditional Hualapai oral legend, the ancient locals lived in the valley totally unaware of the impending flash flood. The Great Creator then sent a divine eagle to warn them of the flood, and the messenger perched atop the cliff and merged with the rock into the form it is today. Another interesting tidbit of information is that bald eagles are a common sight around there; it is as if they have been silently standing vigil over this land all these hundred millennia.
Located at a great bend in the Grand Canyon, Guano Point’s summit requires a relatively long hike on loose gravel. Once it’s reached however, you are treated to a 3600 panoramic vantage point of the entire West Rim that stands on a high slope. The view overlooks the calm flow of the Colorado River deep in the North sandwiched by towering multi-layered canyon wall. Beyond even that, the river can be followed by sight into the distant cluster of mountain ranges covered by clouds with shifting color hues brought on by the sunset. All these elements combine to form a surreal dreamscape that needs to be seen to believe! To the East is where the aforementioned bend turns and where you get a front-seat view of the emanated overwhelming majestic sight of the canyon. It is without a doubt that this vantage point has the best view in all of the West Rim.
West Rim Attractions:
Experience the incredible and unique Skywalk bridge, an attraction like no other. This state-of-the art open-air glass walkway is an architectural marvel which extends 70 feet from the cliff of Eagle Point rim and hangs over the edge, 4000 feet above the canyon floor. Built by the Hualapai Tribe at the Canyon's West Rim, the Skywalk provide you a stunning new perspective, allowing “720-degree” breathtaking views of one of nature's most fantastic displays.
2. Helicopter Air Tour (no landing at the bottom)
Expand your experience with a helicopter tour! Each helicopter is built with large vista windows for minimal obstructive view, maneuverable more than enough to hover over the rim and dance through the airspace between canyon walls. The distinctly colored layers of rock sedimentation can be clearly distinguished when you are flying right up to it. The chance to experience it all and leave an unforgettable memory is not something to be missed in a lifetime.
3. Helicopter & Boat:
To fully experience the Grand Canyon, you need to descend to the canyon floor, which would normally take a lot of time and relatively rigorous hiking. Do not fret however, we offer the chance to make it to the canyon floor in minutes minus the hassle. By taking our helicopter & boat package upgrade, we offe you a way to save all that time and effort so you can better spend it elsewhere! Start by climbing aboard a million-dollar helicopter equipped with forward facing seats and large vista windows and be awe-struck by the seemingly expanding and deepening stone walls as you descend a mile below the rim to the canyon floor. Upon landing, switch gears and board a waiting pontoon boat for a cruise down the Colorado River, the same river that helped carve the Grand Canyon into what it is today, a process which began since millions of years ago. Next, re-board the helicopter for your ascent to the canyon rim above for another chance at marveling its spectacular view. Then take break at Guano Point where you have the chance to grab some lunch and feel free to walk the rim to see even more amazing views from a top of the rim perspective. Next, move on to Eagle's Point where you will have the option to enhance the tour with "Skywalk Experience." Then visit the Hualapai Tribe Village at your own pace, where we recommend checking out the native dances and shows, along with the opportunity to pick up hand crafted jewelry and so much more.
The helicopter combined flight time is approximately 15 minutes, and the boat ride is about 15-20 minutes. The helicopter can take 5-6 guests depending on weight.
4. Grand Canyon West Zip Line:
The Zip Line is located right at the Hualapai Ranch, 1 mile from the world-famous Grand Canyon Skywalk. The Zip Line has a combined total of 3,200 feet of newly constructed cables separated into two segments. The first segment runs around 1,100 feet while the 2nd segment is about 2,100 feet long. Boasting up to 40 MPH speed and 1,000 feet off the west rim canyon floor, the Zip Line will give you the opportunity to experience the joy of soaring through the air!
