Your flight, a 19-seat air-conditioned beauty, will soar over Lake Mead and Hoover Dam en route to the Grand Canyon. You will land at a peaceful and secluded airport on the rim of the Canyon.
You will first go to the edge of the inner gorge of the North Rim. There you will learn about the hundreds of millions of years of geological erosion that have exposed this 2,650-foot-deep rip in the earth. Listen to some tales of the Anasazi Indians who inhabited this area thousands of years ago as you travel to the canyon edge.
This tour will give you plenty of time at the canyon for you to view and photograph the remarkable overlooks, including the rugged lava flows, the Colorado River and the magnificent Grand Canyon itself. Learn about the history of ranchers, settlers and outlaws who inhabited and hid out in this unforgiving land as you enjoy an optional informative 30-minute hike around the canyon’s rim. You also have the option to purchase a Polaris 330 ATV ride from the ranch to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon (approximately 45 minutes in each direction).
All that fresh air and natural wilderness will leave you hungry – but not for long. While you’re having fun, mom will be cookin’ up the finest western style lunch, ready for your return to the ranch where you’ll enjoy a hearty meal. Your afternoon in the Wild West is concluded with your flight back to Las Vegas and bus transport back to your hotel.
