Full description

For the 30-minute helicopter sightseeing flight, experience the spectacular sights of Rio de Janeiro from the sky. As you take off from the airport located near the Olympic center, head upwards and fly towards the shores of Barra da Tijuca.

The captain will take you along the shoreline over Rio’s fabulous beaches of Barra da Tijuca, Joatinga, São Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema, and Copacabana. 

Next, see highlights of the city, which include Sugarloaf Mountain and the impressive Christ the Redeemer statue, standing atop Corcovado Mountain. Enjoy plenty of opportunities to take unique photos while hovering in the sky.

Alternatively, upgrade your tour to the 60-minute tour, which is the same as the 30-minute tour but also includes flying over the Modern Museum of Art of Niterói, Santos Dumont Airport, Downtown Rio, Maracanã Stadium, Tijuca Forest, and more.

Book your flight during the day, at sunset or in the evening up until 8 PM..

A unique and magnificent way to see Rio. The flight itself was just amazing. Be aware that the airport is a bit of a trip from the main tourist area. Also we were left waiting for 45 minutes without explanation and the actual air time was less than 30 minutes. That said, it was definitely worth doing. Highly recommended!

Trotz das wir so spät durch den Traffic waren, hat alles so einwandfrei und super geklappt. Alle Mitarbeiter waren unglaublich freundlich und es war so überwältigend, dass die Tränen vor Freude nur so geflossen sind. Ich kann es jedem nur ans Herz legen diese Erfahrung zu machen!

WAHNSINN! Das Highlight an diesem Tag, an dem wir unser Jubiläum hatten: 4 Jahre auf Weltreise! Am Morgen noch bei der Christus Statue gewesen, danach Copacabana Beach, Ipanema Beach und für 17 Uhr hatten wir diesen Rundflug gebucht. Laut Bewertungen schwer zu finden, daher haben wir uns früh per Uber (45 Brasil. Real) vom Ende des Ipanema Beach aufgemacht, um nicht zu spät zu kommen. Um 16:10 waren wir schon am Hangar 14 auf dem Flughafengelände (dort rein und schon seid ihr angekommen). Das Gelände ist etwas Abseits von Rio City, aber unser Uber Fahrer hatte alles perfekt gefunden. Wir mussten nur knapp 30 Minuten warten, bekamen Wasser und Kaffee und um 16:40h hingen wir schon in die Luft. Die Uhrzeit war perfekt! Die Sonne senkte sich, der Himmel leuchtete mehr und mehr und die Stimmung war gigantisch. Zum ersten Mal saßen wir in einem so winzigen Helikopter, fühlten uns aber nie unsicher. Der Pilot (gleichzeitig auch Guide) war sehr nett und der Rundflug unvergesslich! EINFACH WOW
