Although Israel is a small country, if you’re looking to base yourself in the centre, and tour either the North or the desert region, in just one day, helicopters are the way forward! For a day tour of the North, we would typically take off from the centre of the country, land around the Sea of Galilee, and then take off again towards the Golan region where we would land for an off-road jeep tour and winery lunch, before flying back to the centre stopping once again at the UNESCO world heritage site of the Old City of Acre. Without a helicopter such a tour would take at least two days.
For a helicopter day tour of the desert regions, we might suggest that you take off from the centre of the country and stop in the Judean Desert for a tour of Masada and a dip in the Dead Sea. We would then take off again and fly further South into the Negev where you might enjoy a private wilderness lunch before taking a jeep ride through the Ramon Crater or visiting the UNESCO world heritage sites of Avdat and Shivta. Your helicopter awaiting, we fly you back to Tel Aviv or Jerusalem in time for an evening out on the town.
We also love helicopter tours for those looking for that extra excitement! It’s quite a thrill to see iconic sites such as the Dome of the Rock or the Masada fortress from the aerial view. And if you’re looking to take the thrill to another level, ask us about getting your hands on the controls – we can arrange helicopter flying lessons with IAF pilots!
The helicopter was fantastic. The pilot was fantastic.
