ex·cur·sion: a short journey or trip, especially one engaged in as a leisure activity.

If you're headed to Las Vegas, whether for business or pleasure, you'll want to enjoy all the city has to offer. The area surrounding Sin City provides a wonderful opportunity to indulge in some incredible outdoor excursions. One of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World, the Grand Canyon, is just a short trip away from Las Vegas. Visiting Las Vegas is the perfect opportunity to see one of the most incredible natural landscapes in the world. Stand in awe at the edge of the Grand Canyon and marvel at its sheer size. Walk out over the canyon, 4,000 feet up on the glass bridge of the Skywalk. See the canyon from the sky with a Grand Canyon helicopter tour.

Here's how Maverick can help you plan for your off-Strip excursion so you get every last bit of adventure you can during your upcoming trip.

How Maverick Helicopters provides short Las Vegas excursions

Sometimes time restraints can keep you from really exploring a destination city like Las Vegas. You opt to stay the safe route and choose options that are routine and close by. Or when visiting the Grand Canyon, you'll want to experience as much of the natural landscape as you can in the amount of time you have. Maverick Helicopters offers a variety of shorter tours for this very reason. Choose your perfect fit from these options:

Vegas Nights

Flight Time: 12 to 15 minutes

Enjoy the "Entertainment Capital of the World" from the best view possible - the sky. Vegas Nights is an amazing Las Vegas helicopter tour flying over the megaresorts of the Las Vegas Strip. From the New York-New York skyline, to the fountains at Bellagio, and the never-fading light of the Luxor pyramid, you'll see all the iconic landmarks of the Las Vegas Strip. You'll also experience unparalleled views of Downtown Las Vegas' historic Fremont Street, home to the city's first casinos.

Canyon Spirit

Flight Time: 45-50 minutes

The Canyon Spirit takes you over the beautiful Kaibab National Forest. In the distance, it is possible to see the Painted Desert with some of the most spectacular views in the entire canyon. Your journey continues as you follow the Colorado River upstream. Fly through the canyon and experience fabulous bird's-eye views of the North Rim, and then head south through the Dragon Corridor. This Grand Canyon South Rim tour will provide you with memories of a lifetime.

Neon & Nature

Flight Time: 2.5 hours

It is a bit longer than the other shorter excursions. Still, this tour will provide epic views of Las Vegas and Red Rock Canyon, including a private landing above the valley (sunset option available).

Each of these tours will provide you with stunning views and amazing memories, all within a short amount of time. Plan your next excursion with Maverick and pack a whole lot of adventure into just a few hours.
