Grand Canyon air travel is perfect for Valentine's weekend getaway

Are you trying to plan a Valentine's Day getaway that is exciting and romantic? Then consider an air tour of the Grand Canyon because it would be the ideal blend of beauty, awe and romance.

It is easy to book one of these flights because they depart from Las Vegas, Nevada as well as an airport near the South Rim of Arizona.

You can choose to tour by plane or helicopter, but the best flights from the Grand Canyon are usually the ones with the helicopter because you have better views. Flight trips are also great, and whether you choose a plane or helicopter tour, you will see some truly amazing scenery.

Tours departing from Vegas

Vegas helicopter tours depart from the Boulder City or Vegas Strip. These Grand Canyon flights may even land at the ravine. You can choose between an air trip or landing trip where the landing trip is the most exciting.

There is even a landing trip that comes with a romantic Champagne picnic. It's a great Valentine's Day tour idea, and you can even end with a relaxing boat trip along the smooth waters of the Colorado River.

You can also choose between a standard or deluxe tour where the deluxe tour offers nice perks such as. Departing from the Strip in Vegas. The Deluxe Trip is ideal if you are staying at a Vegas hotel because it also comes with free limo shuttle service. Another perk on luxury trips is seeing Vegas off the air when your chopper returns from the gap.

Since these deluxe trips use Eurocopter EC130 choppers, your ride will also be more comfortable. These helicopters have great views from their large windows, plus the ride is comfortable thanks to the luxurious seating and the improved aerodynamics.

Tours Departing from Arizona

Tours departing from the South Rim of Arizona are available in two varieties, a half hour tour and one that gives you fifty minutes of airtime. While both trips are fantastic, the longer trip is better because you get to see so much more. The longer trip is so extensive that you get to see about 80 percent of the national park when you're through.

One thing to keep in mind on South Rim trips is that they do not land at the canyon, they are just the airspace, so if you want to take a landing trip, plan to travel from Vegas instead.

Touring by plane

If you want to take a flight, you can travel from Vegas or the South Rim. Flights departing from Vegas have landing opportunities, and one fun thing to try is to head out on the Skywalk glass that lets you peek down to the canyon floor below you. This tour is a great way for romantic adventure seekers to enjoy a unique experience that cannot be found anywhere else on earth.

Vegas South Rim flights are also a lot of fun because you can book a package that includes a half hour helicopter ride on the edge along with a 2 hour tour of the park by bus.
