Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) November 16, 2010
Mustang Helicopters officials have announced the addition of a new excursion to the company's schedule, the Western Journey. This brand new adventure gives passengers the opportunity to fully explore Grand Canyon West.
This new sightseeing expedition departs daily from the Henderson Executive Airport, 1410 Jet Stream Drive, Ste. 100, and provides unique views of Southern Nevada, Arizona and the Grand Canyon via helicopter and ground tour.
Explorers first board one of Mustang Helicopter's famous ECO Star Helicopters for their scenic flight over Lake Mead, Hoover Dam, Fortification Hill, Temple Rock and the majestic Grand Canyon, while traveling to Grand Canyon West. Upon arrival at Grand Canyon West, visitors will have approximately three and a half hours to explore the various highlights of the area: Eagle Point, Guano Point and Hualapai Ranch.
Eagle Point is home of the Grand Canyon Skywalk, an engineering marvel that includes a glass walking surface suspended more than 4,000 feet above the Grand Canyon and extended more than 70 feet from the edge. At Eagle Point, guests may visit the Native American Village and Amphitheater to explore authentic dwellings and various tribe performances.
Guano Point features Highpoint Hike, which offers panoramic views of the canyon and the Colorado River, as well as the remnants of a historic mining tram used in the 1930s.
At Hualapai Ranch, sightseers can enjoy horseback riding at an arena or on a trail leading to the canyon rim, participate in roping demonstrations, or take a wagon ride.
Mustang Helicopter's new Western Journey adventure lasts approximately seven hours (hotel to hotel) and is priced at $429. Transportation from Las Vegas Strip and some Henderson hotels is included; call 800-571-6037 for reservations and details.
