Never been up in a helicopter before? Well, this is the perfect introduction! Your 10 minute flight takes you up and over the beautiful Emerald Bay, high over Vikingsholm Castle and by Fallen Leaf Lake before descending back to earth. A truly memorable experience!

Did you know that Emerald Bay is the second most photographed location in North America?

On this tour, enjoy the wonder of Emerald Bay, Fallen Leaf Lake and the Vikingsholm from the best vantage point available!

Your helicopter will be a Robinson R44 Raven II or a Bell 206 LongRanger. These are some of the safest and quietest helicopters in the industry. Each copter comes equipped with leather seats and Active Noise Reduction headsets, so you can enjoy your flight in comfort without any unnecessary noise.

Depending on the helicopter being flown, passenger count will be 3, 4 or 5 passengers and the pilot. Be assured that EVERY seat is a window seat!

My husband and our grand daughter really enjoyed this trip. The guide was very professional in explaining what they were seeing below and our grand daughter (who is only 6) remembered the informational areas the pilot had pointed out. As we went on up and around the lake, she pointed them out to us... We appreciated your kindness and sincerity. Scotty Ulch

it was worth the money. the pilot was friendly and had a great sense of humor which help because I was a bit nervous about flying. we didn't actually get to go over emerald bay due to the wind conditions and that was a really big disappointment for me, but safety first.
