Grand Canyon West, Papillon bring back helicopter flights with pontoon tours


Grand Canyon West and Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters welcomed back aerial and pontoon tours on Wednesday.

The West Rim offers a unique opportunity for guests to explore the Grand Canyon by air and by land. Guests begin the adventure by flying via helicopter below the rim of the Canyon where they will land and board pontoons to experience the wonders of the Grand Canyon from the calm waters of the Colorado River.

“We are proud to have the opportunity to relaunch our exclusive relationship with Grand Canyon West, allowing our shared guests to experience the Grand Canyon from above and below the rim. We continue to move forward in these challenging times while ensuring the highest levels of safety for our guests, our employees and the local communities we serve,” says Brenda Halvorson, chief executive officer, Papillon Grand Canyon Helicopters.

The Helicopter-Pontoon tour is available seven days a week and departs from the Grand Canyon West Airport in Peach Springs, Ariz. Pricing per person begins at $199 and includes a round-trip helicopter flight to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and a 15-minute pontoon boat ride along the Colorado River. Guests can also book a package price with park entry from Papillon.
