For many people, the dawning of a new year offers the perfect opportunity to change old habits, to live life with a little more purpose. Skycam offers many experiences which are guaranteed to invigorate your sense of adventure, stimulate your thirst for discovery, and satiate your desires to live each day to the full. A panoramic helicopter flight in the Alps is something that will bring joy to family members of all ages, including the most reluctant family members and the most difficult-to-please in-laws. A panoramic helicopter tour in the French Alps is the ideal antidote for the winter blues and the ultimate way to start 2018 in style.
Skycam offers four main routes that reveal birds-eye views of famous natural wonders. Conquer the highest mountain in Europe without breaking a sweat with Skycam’s tour of Mont Blanc. See this legendary peak in a truly unique way, on a one-hour panoramic flight for up to six passengers with prices starting at just €1,600 per helicopter. The panoramic flight over Mont Blanc offers a topographic geography lesson that the kids just can’t get in school. The 4,808-metre peak is blanketed in snow year-round and dominates the skyline with its imposing majesty, making it an ideal place to tour on a helicopter at any time.
Besides the Mont Blanc tour, we offer three more panoramic flights that are breathtaking in scale and beauty.
Each of our panoramic flights takes off from Archamps heliport – a strategically base located just 20 minutes from Geneva.
Lake Annecy is another iconic sight that defines the Alpine landscape. It is framed on its east side by the Tournette, one of Bornes Massif incredible mountains. Famous as a playground for water sports, the ice-blue lake is enhanced by the spectacular peaks that surround it. Nearby Aix-Les Bains is perched on the edge of the Lac du Bourget, France’s largest glacial lake. It is renowned for its thermal spas.
The long and narrow Lake Leman (also known as Lake Geneva) sits between France and Switzerland. It is one of the largest lakes in Western Europe. Flights over this natural wonder offer a fantastic panorama of the alpine countryside, including the picturesque spa town of Thonon-Les-Bains – located on the lake’s southern shore in the French Alps. Just east of Thonon, Evian (world famous for its mineral water) is situated next to Lake Leman and is nestled among verdant mountain pastures. To catch a glimpse of lakes and mountains in this area is to witness Mother Nature in all her glory.
Skycam’s panoramic flights can be taken on three types of aircraft: from the five-seater AS 350 B2 to the twin-engined, ultra-exclusive six-seater A 109 SP. Each of our helicopter models is luxurious, comfortable and well-maintained. Our pilots are highly-skilled and experienced and know these mountain routes inside-out. Your comfort and safety are prioritised, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy the spectacular panoramas in every direction.
