Private Helicopter Ride in Rio de Janeiro

Private Helicopter Ride in Rio de Janeiro

star-5

The Private Helicopter Flight in Rio de Janeiro is one of the most spectacular and memorable experiences you will have from your visit to Rio and in your life. The opportunity to see the city from the sky is something unique and unforgettable. The helicopter rises and the symphony begins under your eyes. The incredible balance between nature and the city will take your breath away! The Tijuca Forest extends into the heart of the city, covering the mountains with a fresh and vivid green color. Beaches, islands, emblematic buildings, Guanabara Bay, Sugar Loaf Mountain, the legendary Maracanã Stadium, all of that and much more can be seen from the helicopter. The social contrast is also really interesting to see from the sky. The favorite moment for most of our guests is when you can look into the eyes of the statue, Christ the Redeemer! We have no words to explain this experience. Undoubtedly, a private helicopter flight is the best way to see and understand the city of Rio de Janeiro!
