Top 10 by air

Hot air balloon over Teotihuacán

Mexico

Rise up over the Valley of Teotihuacán, over the pyramids of the Sun and the Moon in your private hot-air balloon, absorbing the sheer size and mysticism of this important Aztec site. Look out over vistas of the surrounding valley as the stunning colours of the sunrise light up the landscape below.

Take a scenic flight to the Lost City

Colombia

Colombia’s charms have no end but viewing the Lost City from a private helicopter is a spectacle above the rest. Cross over the depths of this ancient site believed to pre-date Machu Picchu and learn about the civilisation that came before in this stretch of paradise.

Take flight in a Spitfire

England

For many thrill-seekers, there’s nothing quite like the rush of racing through the air. Accompanied by an experienced pilot, jump into the cockpit and prepare for a unique flying experience in a vintage Spitfire. As a passenger, you’ll enjoy the thrill of flying in the most iconic aeroplanes of World War II while admiring the views of the patchwork of the English countryside rushing past below.

Experience the Balloon Fiesta in New Mexico

New Mexico, USA

The USA’s southwest is home to incredible natural sites as well as several cool and quirky events. One of which is Albuquerque’s International Balloon Fiesta. Hundreds of thousands of people from around the globe gather to watch the New Mexico sky transform into a parade of colour as hundreds of hot air balloons take flight.

Witness the Great Migration from the air

Kenya & Tanzania

Thundering herds, rolling plains and dramatic river crossings – this is nature’s greatest show. Go beyond the regular game drive vehicle and climb aboard a helicopter to witness the spectacle of the Great Migration from the air. Visit the Maasai Mara and Serengeti between July and October for a chance to see the millions of wildebeest, zebra and antelope make their annual migration.

Take flight around Mount Everest

Nepal

Wake up for an early-morning flight around Mount Everest and indulge in breathtaking views of the world's highest peak. Soar through the sky, taking in the changing colours of the vibrant landscape, from lush green meadows to rugged mountain cliffsides. Witness the grandeur of the 8,849m tall Mount Everest and feel the indomitable spirit of the Himalayas on an hour-long flight.

Enjoy a bird's eye view of Uluru and Kata Tjuta

Australia

Soar over Australia’s arid Red Centre in a private helicopter for an unparalleled view of Uluru and Kata Tjuta. Grand in both scale and impact, the monolithic rock of Uluru rises from the desert plains dominating the landscape, while the 36 giant domes of Kata Tjuta sprawl across 20km. As places of pilgrimage, these sandstone rocks have deep cultural meaning for the Aboriginal people, with both sacred sites sure to mesmerise.

Soar over the Skeleton Coast

Namibia

Take flight and soar over Namibia’s enigmatic Skeleton Coast where eerie whale skeletons and remnants of shipwrecks dot the raw and rugged shoreline. Watch powerful Atlantic swells sweep along the coastline where the desert meets the ocean and keep a keen eye out for desert-adapted lions prowling along the dunes.

Watch the sunrise over the Atlas Mountains from a hot air balloon

Marrakech, Morocco

Wake before dawn for an unparalleled sunrise experience. Climb into a hot air balloon and get ready to drift peacefully over Marrakech. Below, admire the winding city streets as they flicker into life. Above, look towards the Atlas Mountains and watch the sunrise paint the dramatic peaks in swathes of red, yellow and gold.

Rise above the ancient landscape of Flinders Ranges

Flinders Ranges, Australia

Take a scenic flight over the extraordinary geological rock formations of the breathtaking ancient landscape of the Flinders Ranges. This is an exclusive and memorable experience with an epic helicopter flight over the vast outback.
