For the first time, beginning August 2012, The Papillon Group will be offering adventure enthusiasts the opportunity to journey from one side of the Grand Canyon to the other via motorcycle and helicopter.
Created exclusively by The Papillon Group, the world’s largest “flightseeing” company and in partnership with EagleRider, whose mission is to turn the dreams of adventure travelers into reality, the tours will be available via www.Papillon.com for guests of all ages. As with all Papillon experiences, round-trip shuttle transportation is available from most Southern Nevada hotels and resorts. These tours are ideal for small groups as well, ranging from bachelor parties to corporate incentive trips.
North Canyon Helicopter Tour With Harley
Papillon guests will venture from the South to the North rims, which will boast incredible views of the canyon’s deepest and widest part, at one mile down. Guests will first experience the North Canyon Helicopter aerial tour of the North Rim and Central region of Grand Canyon. Upon their return landing at the South Rim, guests will be greeted by a guide for a two and a half hour guided motorcycle tour. Founded in 1992, EagleRider pioneered the Harley-Davidson motorcycle rental concept and the guided motorcycle tour business. Today, they are the world’s largest motorcycle tourism company, celebrating 20 years of understanding the needs of motorcycle enthusiasts and adventure travelers alike. Boxed lunches and cold drinks will be provided, along with a jacket, helmet and gloves. Fuel and basic insurance are also included (with a $300 deductible). If guests so chose and can present a valid motorcycle license, they may drive the motorcycles without a guide. The entire tour lasts three and a half hours. Price per person: $379.
Grand Canyon South Rim Airplane Tour With Harley
Experience the picturesque Grand Canyon South rim from two spectacular perspectives—by air aboard a flighttseeing airplane and by ground in the open air astride a Harley from EagleRider. The tour will begin with a scenic flight originating from Papillon’s Aerocenter in Boulder City, Nev. (located just 30 minutes outside of Las Vegas). The flight whisks guests to Grand Canyon National Park. From there, they land and embark upon a two and a half hour guided motorcycle tour by EagleRider. Boxed lunches and cold drinks will be provided, along with a jacket, helmet and gloves. Fuel and basic insurance are also included (with a $300 deductible). The entire tour lasts nine and a half hours. Price per person: $534.
