Visit the most magnificent landform in the United States - the Grand Canyon - then explore the rugged nature and abandoned gold mine within Eldorado Canyon.
Begin your adventure with shuttle service from your Las Vegas hotel to the Boulder City Air Terminal. After settling into your touring helicopter’s comfortable seats you’re up and away over the abstract vastness of the Mojave Desert, the colossal Hoover Dam, and Lake Mead - one of the largest man-made lakes in the world. As lake turns to river and the Grand Wash Cliffs rise up before you, you'll know that up ahead is the Grand Canyon. More thrills are yet to come as your helicopter begins its descent to the very bottom of the canyon. Your 30-minute interlude on the canyon floor includes a light picnic meal with champagne or sparkling cider.
You will continue on via helicopter through the Black Canyon of the Colorado River and land at Eldorado Canyon! This site includes the Techatticup Gold Mine, previously Nevada’s most productive gold mine. Eldorado Canyon once boasted a population larger than Las Vegas and an even bigger reputation for murder and mayhem. Ghosts of the past are rumored to remain in the shafts and tunnels to this very day!
After your goldmine tour, you will have another 2 hours to explore Eldorado Canyon in the method of your choosing. 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 bighorn sheep and mule-driven ore wagons. The open sky, the Colorado River, and all-around views of the mountain ranges leading to the Grand Canyon are awesome sights to take in from the top of our trailhead. Our fully-automatic ATVs are late model with 4-wheel drive 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 rugged mountain terrain surrounded by forests of Cholla cactus with towering multicolored rock formations as the backdrop on 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 you'll 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!
