The Hoover Dam is 726 feet and 1,244 feet long and your flight will take you directly past this feat of modern engineering. The amount of concrete that it took to construct the dam could be used to build a highway that traverses the length of the country.
This desert may appear barren, but as you draw closer, the Mojave offers habitats to several plants, animals and fish, including wetlands, springs and forests.
As you make your way to the Grand Canyon, you will cross the sandstone shorelines and shimmering teal blue waters of Lake Mead. Not only is the lake is 112 miles long when full, but it is also home to many desert plants and animals, who have honed their survival skills to match the arid and dry conditions.
Follow the river path directly into the canyon. It flows at a rate exceeding 800 million gallons per hour.
The Grand Canyon landscape offers a feast for the senses and is also considered to be one of the seven natural wonders of the world. Its colossal size and erosion striations make for a truly epic experience. We have established a relationship with the Hualapai Tribe that allows us to land within the canyon and this is the only region of the canyon where landing is allowed.
Take a trip down the Colorado River and enjoy its monolithic sandstone cliffs from a whole new perspective and get an up close and personal look at the towering canyon walls.
Explore an authentic Native American village, take a look over the canyon’s rim or test your mettle by walking on the Skywalk’s glass bridge. It’s suspended roughly 4,000 feet over the canyon floor. Here you can also meet Hualapai Tribe members and educate yourself on their history and customs.
Enjoy cowboy entertainment and good old fashioned western hospitality. Learn more about various cowboy activities just like in the old west. Horseback riding lessons are also available for a minimal fee.
