Las Vegas City Lights Picnic

Las Vegas City Lights Picnic Helicopter Tour

This is a different, and exclusive way to see the entire city of Las Vegas by helicopter.

With the towering Las Vegas skyline to the east and a backdrop of the fiery cliffs of Red Rock Canyon, this Las Vegas City Lights Picnic tour begins with a remarkable Las Vegas strip view as you head out of the city. Once atop your secluded natural landing point, you’ll be served light snacks capped off by sparkling champagne. On your return flight, enjoy views of Mt. Charleston and the Las Vegas strip.

This tour starts with pick up via a luxurious, limousine-style vehicle that will bring you to our lavish pre-flight Sundance terminal. Our friendly pilot will escort you to your helicopter and one of our team members will capture this incredible moment with a photo right before you board one of our Airbus EC130T2 helicopters, which boasts an extra-wide cabin with wrap around windows and stadium seating.

Pass the wonderful city of Las Vegas and all its major mega resorts. Soar over awe-inspiring views of Potosi Mountain and the gorgeous Red Rock National Conservation Area. Red Rock Canyon was designated as Nevada's first National Conservation Area. The unique geologic features, plants and animals of Red Rock represent some of the best examples of the Mojave Desert. You will then land at our secluded landing point perched high above the Las Vegas valley. Experience the natural beauty that surrounds you with remarkable views in every direction as you’re served a glass of champagne.

Enjoy snacks from your own personal picnic basket, while taking in the sights high above the canyon. This light fare includes fruity snacks, snackable cheese, nutrition bar, and a snack mix.
