Visit Grand Canyon during the Christmas Holiday season? Yes! Trips are available from Las Vegas and the South Rim and offer the savvy traveler plenty of time to add on some superior side trips to make these exciting flights even more awesome. But don't delay when it comes to booking as seats are expected to sell out.

Options

There are two kinds of airplane tours this Christmas. They are air-only and landing tours. From Las Vegas, both go over Lake Mead and Hoover Dam en route to the Canyon. And from South Rim, the best and only option goes over three rims before returning to Grand Canyon National Park Airport. Flights are available every day of the year including Christmas day.

Las Vegas plane tours go to the West Rim and the South Rim. The West Rim is 125 miles from town and takes about 25 minutes to reach while the South Rim is 277 miles away and requires 60 minutes of flight time. The majority of departures leave from Henderson and Boulder City, two of Las Vegas' largest suburbs.

I personally like the landing tour options over the air-only. If you go this route, you can add such side trips like a helicopter ride to the bottom, VIP Skywalk tickets and a Colorado River boat ride. My favorite is the one where you take a helicopter ride to the bottom. Many like the package where you scoop up all the options and do them in one single day!

Skywalk

Then there's the Skywalk. If you think you want to do this attraction, add it to your package in advance. It's cheaper. The bridge itself is an all-glass platform that lets you walk up to 70 feet over the edge until you are standing some 4K feet over the bottom. It's a thrilling sensation and the views you get of Guano Point and Eagle Point are spectacular.

The South Rim offers only one airplane ride and it's outstanding. It takes off from the airport in Tusayan, AZ, and goes over the South Rim, North Rim and East Rim before the tour's end. During that time, you'll have flown over the Colorado River confluence and through the Dragoon Corridor, the widest and deepest section of the Canyon. In total, you'll see up to 75 percent of the Park on this trip.

I strongly recommend that you book your airplane tour online and in advance. The best deals are on the Internet, and so far this holiday season I've see deals where you can save up to 35 percent on select flights. The catch is that you have to book over the Internet and complete the transaction online in order to qualify. That's a simple requirement if you ask me for savings this huge.

As for booking in advance, do it. Try to book at least a week prior. Avoid buying your seats within 24 hours. And definitely try to sidestep booking on the day of the flight (if you do, book super early in the morning!). The issue with doing it same-day is that you'll pay more and there's a strong probability that seats will be sold out anyhow.

Conclusion

I hope this article on Grand Canyon airplane tours during the Christmas holidays helped you plan your trip. If going from Las Vegas, try to get a landing tour, and especially the one that includes a helicopter ride to the bottom. From South Rim, the choice is limited to the 50-minute flight, which is a terrific tour.
