A Quick Look at Grand Canyon Helicopter Tours Today

By Tracy Narvaez Subscribe to RSS | November 29th 2011 | Views:

With 237 miles to see that is mostly inaccessible, the Grand Canyon can offer a challenge for a person who wants to take in all of it's wonder while on vacation. This beautiful wonder of nature has been very difficult for most people to enjoy and, when visiting the sites that are accessible by vehicle, the crowds can be overwhelming. In the last few years Grand Canyon helicopter tours have given visitors a great way to leave Las Vegas, Nevada and see this splendid canyon in ways that were never before possible.

The tour providers offer packages that neatly fit the overall vacation with short hour long trips to flights that last all day. You can choose to fly through the canyon and land by the river to enjoy a picnic lunch and explore the surrounding area. Or, you may want to enjoy the wildlife and naked beauty of the cliffs, crags and chasms from the air. Most of the areas you will see are completely inaccessible by vehicle and would take several days to hike to.

One of the great features of this wonder of the world is that five of the seven ecosystems are located along the Canyon's path. This gives a person in the air the ability to see the changes in the ecosystems more clearly. The elevation changes provide a person to see the different indigenous plants and wildlife for each of the regions and see a huge array of animals that include bobcats, bighorn sheep, coyotes and more.

The experience of the Canyon changes with each season, but nothing compares to seeing this magnificent place in the winter. Thanks to the helicopter tours, you can enjoy the unique geographical features of the Canyon highlighted by snow and see the fabulous scenery that you would normally be unable to access or see.

Helicopter pilots for the Grand Canyon must be specially trained and have more flight time than those who fly in other areas. This is due to the fact that the canyon can be treacherous with wind shifts and gusts. Re-fueling stations are located at areas where guests get a chance to spend time exploring or enjoy snacks while taking in the beautiful views.

Talking to the tour coordinators about what you should bring for your trip will be very helpful. They will be able to tell you the type of clothing that will be most comfortable, what to expect while you are in the air, and details about the helicopters and pilots. The crew staff will also provide interesting information about the canyon and give you details about it's formation that you may not have been aware of.

Some people have a sensitivity to sudden changes in elevation or medical conditions that require special attention when flying. Even though the region looks relatively flat, the ecosystems are the same as those from Canada to Mexico. Therefore, planning and preparation will be important.

The team that is offering Grand Canyon helicopter tours are able to address many sensitivities by making changes to flight plans or focusing on specific areas that you are interested in seeing. Adding this trip to your holiday plans will give you the chance of a lifetime to see an amazing wonder of the world that will give you memories to last a lifetime.
