Grand Canyon Helicopters Launches New Tour: Heli & Whitewater Rafting Adventure
New for 2017, Grand Canyon Helicopters has announced the launch of its newest tour: Heli & Whitewater Rafting Adventure

Offered in partnership with Hualapai River Runners, the adventure begins by checking into the Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal, located at McCarran International Airport’s Atlantic Terminal. Guests board the helicopter for a flight to the airport in Peach Springs, Arizona. There, Hualapai River Runners will transport guests to the Hualapai Lodge, where they will board an eight-person motorized river raft, designed especially for navigating the Colorado River.

All Hualapai River Runner guides are fully certified and provide intriguing insights into the ancient land as well as ages-old stories passed down by their ancestors. This 4-hour whitewater adventure consists of rapids ranging from four to seven, depending upon water levels and is experienced during the first 12 miles of the trip. Along the way, a stop is made for guests to enjoy a moderate hike to Travertine Cavern Falls and a relaxing lunch next to the sandy river bank. Lunch is provided by the Hualapai River Runners and includes sandwiches, assorted beverages and snacks.*

The whitewater rafting portion concludes at Grand Canyon West. From the edge of the river, guests will make their way up to the Ramada for a thrilling helicopter flight, soaring 4,000 feet to the top of the canyon before landing at Grand Canyon West Airport.

Including limousine transportation, flights and whitewater rafting, the adventure takes up to 12 hours from start to finish. Complimentary round-trip transfers are available from nearly every Southern Nevada resort and casino. Multilingual narration is also available in Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish. The price is $855 per adult and $835 per child (must be eight years or older).
