With spellbinding natural splendour across both North and South Islands, it’s unsurprising helicopter is a popular mode of transport for taking in this dream-like destination. Lakes, forests, fjords and beaches span the country, placing striking hues of green against deep shades of blue. Something truly unmissable – board your helicopter and fly through the grandeur of the Alps to the majestic Milford Sound, with the opportunity for an epic glacier landing to admire the magical blue and green ice falls.
Known as the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’, the geology of Iceland has rules of its own. Staggering mountain ranges, ice-capped volcanoes and erupting geysers are a spectacular sight to be seen from land or sky. With almost 24 hours of daylight during the summer months, a helicopter tour allows you to capture incredible moments including wildlife roaming the open glaciers and plunging waterfalls frozen to spectacular effect.
Famed for sapphire-coloured waters, swathes of white sand and the utmost luxury, Mauritius is equally as beautiful on land as it is by air.

Stay at the prestigious One&Only Le Saint Géran and set off on a 30-minute helicopter ride to spot the illustrious illusion, caused by silt movement on the ocean bed, in addition to the naturally wild beauty of Mauritius’ landscapes.
While you might be able to admire this iconic city’s skyline from trendy rooftop bars and the windows of towering skyscrapers, venturing higher gives you the picture-perfect, wide-angle view of New York’s most recognisable sights.
