An exclusive flight

Looking for something to do this weekend? Guests at the Four Seasons Hotel Las Vegas can head out on the Natural Wonders Experience, an exclusive luxury helicopter flight and culinary experience featuring remote Grand Canyon and Valley of Fire landings. The helicopter flight from Las Vegas heads to private landing sites at the Grand Canyon and Valley of Fire.

The three-hour excursion includes private transportation from the hotel to Maverick Helicopters’ Las Vegas terminal, where guests will depart via private helicopter to the Valley of Fire. The helicopter will land on the highest peak of the Valley of Fire. Considered one of the most remote destinations in the southwest United States, this peak offers unsurpassed views of the area’s spectacular red sandstone formations.

The excursion continues into the Grand Canyon, where the helicopter will land 3,500 feet below the West Rim at Maverick Helicopters’ private landing site on Hualapai Indian Territory. At this site about 300 feet above the Colorado River, guests will enjoy champagne and lunch prepared by Four Seasons’ culinary team.

The journey concludes with a flight over Lake Mead, Fortification Hill and the awe-inspiring Hoover Dam, followed by a flight over the Las Vegas Strip and Downtown Las Vegas.
