Luxury Las Vegas holidays — flamboyant, extravagant and simply unmissable. All neon lights and live entertainment, Las Vegas is a monumental amusement centre crammed with colourful casinos, swish shopping malls, top-name shows and innumerable restaurants. Strolling down the Strip is like taking a world tour, passing the Eiffel Tower, the canals of Venice, New York skyscrapers and Egyptian pyramids along the way. Volcanoes erupt, fountains bedazzle and light shows illuminate the night sky. Marvel at the croupiers’ skills, with fortunes hanging on each roll of the dice or turn of the cards. Experience thrilling panoramic views from the Stratosphere Tower and steel yourself for the heart-in-mouth rollercoasters. Equally thrilling are helicopter tours over the Grand Canyon — the Colorado River flowing almost a mile below the rim. Sweep over Hoover Dam, where the beautiful man-made Lake Mead beckons with cooling cruises on board a traditional paddle wheel vessel. Taste the true grit Wild West on an off-road adventure into the desert wilderness, deep into Hualapai Native American Indian country. Make your way through the flaming red rocks of the Valley of Fire or venture into Death Valley to see sights immortalised in a thousand films. All this and more is Las Vegas country… a vibrant playground in the heart of the desert where the odds are stacked in your favour.
Summer can be extremely hot, whilst winters are generally milder. Spring and autumn are the best times to visit, with Las Vegas being dry for most of the year; however, thunderstorms can occur during the summer months.

Hiking, biking and even white water rafting are just some of the ways to explore its vast terrain, but for those seeking something a little more unconventional, a revitalising HeliYoga experience offers a remarkable alternative. On behalf of Maverick Helicopters and Silent Savasana, ascend atop the Valley of Fire for a 75-minute private yoga class, before enjoying a breathtaking flight over the Las Vegas Strip.
