The west end of the Grand Canyon region has been the home of the Hualapai People for a very long time. This part of the Grand Canyon is a sacred spiritual place that is respected with great reverence by both tribal members and outsiders. The Hualapai Nation has successfully provided an opportunity for all visitors to experience some worthwhile cultural exchange while enjoying the scenic splendor of Grand Canyon West!
Grand Canyon West certainly has turned into a major southwestern vacation destination in recent years. The main attraction is the glass floor Skywalk at Eagle Point. The entire Eagle Point overlook area offers spectacular views of the western Grand Canyon. Eagle Point also has a Native American Village that includes an outdoor museum, trading post and a performing arts amphitheater. Restaurants can be found at Eagle Point too. Guano Point is another unique feature of Grand Canyon West and this scenic overlook is quite peaceful to experience. An old west ghost town that has guest cabins appeals to those who want to spend some extra time exploring this majestic place. Guests can even go on sunset horse and buggy rides to the rim of the Grand Canyon from the ranch!
When visiting Hualapai Grand Canyon West, the price of one all inclusive ticket covers everything except airport services and helicopter tours. By purchasing admission passes to Grand Canyon West at one of the regional satellite locations, like the Powerhouse Visitors Center in Kingman, a discount is usually applied. The package deal includes unlimited shuttle bus service to all of the site locations, so the car can be left behind in the airport welcome center parking lot, which is quite secure. Admission to the Skywalk and a meal at one of the snack bars or at the Ranch Dining Hall is also included in the round robin price.
The airport at Hualapai Grand Canyon West is the welcome center and this is where all tours begin. This is a very busy little airport that also is the main tour bus depot. Flights and tour bus excursions can be booked in Las Vegas, Phoenix and even the Grand Canyon National Park, which is just east from here.
The airport has a fleet of helicopters for those who really want to see the Grand Canyon in its entirety. As can be seen in the photos, these Grand Canyon copters sure do stay busy! Touring the Grand Canyon in a helicopter will provide a great overview and the helicopter tours go to places in the Grand Canyon that are not accessible by any other means, which includes the Hualapai and Havasupai territories in the big canyon.
Grand Canyon West is a very big place and there is a lot to do. The services are very well organized and the Hualapai cater to an international crowd, so foreign visitors will certainly be at ease. Hualapai Grand Canyon West is an adventure like no other, so definitely chalk this one up on the lifetime travel destination list!
