Talk about the ultimate two-for-one: the Grand Canyon and Eldorado Canyon! Travel by helicopter to one world-famous canyon, then another that’s more off the beaten path.
Begin your adventure with shuttle service from your Las Vegas hotel to the Boulder City Heliport Terminal. After settling into your touring helicopter’s comfortable seats, you’re up and away, over the abstract vastness of the Mojave Desert, colossal Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, one of the largest man-made lakes in the world. As lake turns to river, the Grand Wash Cliffs rise up before you – up ahead is the Grand Canyon. Then, more thrills as your helicopter begins its descent to the very bottom of the Grand Canyon! Your 30 minute interlude on the canyon floor includes a light picnic meal, with champagne or sparkling cider.
Upon reboarding your helicopter, you will continue on through the Black Canyon of the Colorado River and land at Eldorado Canyon! This site includes the Techatticup Gold Mine, once Nevada’s most productive gold mine's of its day. Eldorado Canyon once boasted a population larger than Las Vegas, and a reputation for murder and mayhem that was even bigger. Ghosts of the past are rumored to remain in the shafts and tunnels to this very day!
After your goldmine tour, you have another 2 hours in which to explore Eldorado Canyon, and this time, you get to choose your adventure (included in the price of this package)! Want to kick up a little dust? Choose an exciting guided Baja jeep ride, or ride your own ATV up rugged trails carved out by big-horn sheep and horse drawn wagons.
ATV (PBW-4EA):Experience the best ATV Tour Las Vegas has to offer. Ride your ATV on an Off Road excursion up and around trails that were meant for Big Horn Sheep and Mule driven Ore wagons. Big open sky, the Colorado River and 3 dimensional views of the mountain ranges leading to the Grand Canyon are an awesome site to take in from the top of our trail head. ATVs are late model, 4 wheel drive, fully automatic and a blast to operate! After a Safety Operations Orientation, both beginners and experienced riders will be ready to hit the trail with your Professional Guide. You will ride on extreme mountain terrain, surrounded by forests of Cholla cactus, with towering multi-colored rock formations as the backdrop for this incredibly scenic tour.
Baja Jeep (PBW-4EJ):Continue exploring the area on one of the Eldorado Canyon with a Baja Jeep ride through desert trails. On your ride, view historic areas, mountain tops and an old mining shaft 900 feet below ground. Conclude with a champagne picnic lunch before returning to your hotel with memories to last a lifetime!
