The Grand Canyon West Rim attracts over 1 million visitors from around the world each year. This may seem like a lot, but the West Rim is actually less crowded than other areas of the canyon, yet it still features the majestic landscapes that characterize it as a Natural Wonder of the World. Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines’ world-class West Rim tours explore Grand Canyon landmarks like Eagle Point, Guano Point, the Colorado River, the Grand Canyon Skywalk, and more.
West Rim airplane tours from Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines leave from two locations: Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon West Rim.
The West Rim is the closest rim of the Grand Canyon to Las Vegas. Compared to the South Rim, the west side is about a 2-hour drive - or a half-hour flight - closer to Las Vegas. As a result, this rim is ideal for a quick day trip from Las Vegas. Each airplane tour also includes complimentary pick-up and drop-off from a select number of Las Vegas hotels Downtown and on the Strip.
GCSA offers a variety of airplane tours from Las Vegas. From a half-day aerial excursion soaring over the highlights of the Grand Canyon West to an 8-hour immersive experience that includes a helicopter ride, pontoon boat cruise, Skywalk pass, and ground exploration time.
