The Grand Canyon is best enjoyed by air, by ground and by water – and this tour has it all! The day begins at the Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters terminal where a helicopter awaits to whisk passengers away to Peach Springs, Arizona. The Hualapai River Runners will greet passengers and provide transfers from the airport to the Hualapai Lodge, where guests will board an eight-person motorized river raft specifically designed for traversing the Colorado River. The Hualapai River Runner are exceptional guides, having lived their lives navigating the waters of the Grand Canyon and learning all there is to know about the ever-changing Colorado River. All guides are fully certified.
Guests will enjoy a brief stop for a nature hike and refreshing lunch along the way. The whitewater adventure wraps up at Grand Canyon West along the riverbank. Guests will board a helicopter for a thrilling flight, ascending 4,000 feet through the canyon and landing at Grand Canyon West airport. After a day full of adventure, passengers will return to the Boulder City terminal with memories and bragging rights for a lifetime!
As with all Papillon tours, complimentary hotel transfers is provided as part of this package.
