Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines (GCSA) is the first and only tour operator to now offer nonstop flights to Antelope Canyon and Horseshoe Bend from Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon. GCSA’s new tour, Antelope Canyon Expedition, is now available for both individual passengers and groups. The tour is available year-round.
Guests begin the trip by checking into the Grand Canyon Scenic Airlines Terminal in Boulder City, Nevada. Guests will then fly to Page where they will experience a guided tour of Antelope Canyon, a slot canyon with Navajo Sandstone rock deposits that were formed millions of years ago.
Next, the tour continues with a visit to the Horseshoe Bend where guests can peer off the edge of the Colorado River. Highlights include photo opportunities where guests will spend approximately one hour on the rim enjoying one of the most spectacular natural wonders. A picnic lunch will be served before departing Page and returning to Las Vegas and transferring back to their hotel.
The entire journey lasts approximately 11 hours, including transportation, flights and time in the canyon. Complimentary round-trip transfers are available from nearly every Southern Nevada resort and casino.
The price for non-stop service for individual guests is $499 per person and $479 for passengers age 11 and under. Individual guests will fly to Antelope Canyon with the experience to include transportation and a picnic lunch. For groups, the price begins at $3,500 for the Cessna Caravan seating up to nine passengers. The Twin Otter/Vistaliner, which seats up to 16 passengers, is priced at $6,000.
Finally, for travelers interested in adding a helicopter, at the end of the airplane flight in Page, guests can fly to the top of Tower Butte. This sandstone structure rises 5,000 feet above sea level and can only be accessed via helicopter. Tower Butte is in Lake Powell Navajo Tribal Park, which is also located in Page. With the helicopter ride, the tour takes 60 minutes and costs an additional $299 per person.
