We can arrange all types of sightseeing –tours by helicopter. Heli trekking tours for people who have limited time or elderly, who are not able to trek due to physical conditions. The heli tour can be run for trek to inaccessible areas or just to shorten the trips which otherwise would have taken longer. Since the whirlybird needs only a small landing space, it can be hired to take tourists to whichever destination and at whatever time they want to go.
