Santorini is an amazing Greek island. White houses made in traditional style, some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet, the flavor of Greece and the warm welcome of the locals – all this will await the traveler if he arrives to rest in Santorini.
But in order to get to know and see this magical “white” island better, you need to attend numerous excursions. One of the amazing excursions that allows you to experience unforgettable emotions is a helicopter ride.
Private 30-minute helicopter tour around the island
During this tour you will have a great opportunity to see the romantic island of Santorini, the tourist pearl and archaeological pride of Greece. For more than half a century, the island has been a prestigious resort in the Mediterranean, where tourists from all over the world seek to get.
Flying over the ancient island, the area of which is quite small – only 76 km², you can see how many incredibly beautiful corners there are: picturesque villages that are spread on hills strewn with greenery, azure bays, stunningly beautiful beaches with colorful sand. Rocks go deep into the depths of the sea and skyward. You will fly over the snow-white city of Fira, where you can observe the blue domes of ancient churches, which are magically illuminated by the rays of the sun. And houses and buildings in exclusively white and blue colors are randomly located on the slopes of rocks and hills. We are no longer talking about how wonderful the seascapes will be from a bird’s eye view.
You can choose the helicopter on which the flight will be carried out by yourself, from the following brands: A 109 C, EC 120, BELL 407, EUROCOPTER AS350.
Santorini is a unique island. Many scientists think that it is here that there are traces of the lost Atlantis. Getting on it, you are transported to another world! A world outside of time and space, which appeared thousands of years ago from the bowels of the earth and to this day carries an unsolved mystery. The harsh and original beauty of rocks made of cooled lava of different shades, the unique architecture of small towns, traditional white houses and fabulous sunsets – all this is the hallmark of the island.
The excursion program begins with a visit to the city of Oia, the most picturesque city in the Mediterranean, from the open area of \u200b\u200bwhich offers a unique view of the Caldera and the volcano. Next, a walk to the capital of the island, Fira, which is located at an altitude of 300 meters above sea level. Walking through the winding, narrow, cobbled streets of the city, sitting in romantic taverns where you can have a cup of coffee with a fantastic view of the Mediterranean Sea – all this is an amazing pastime. Next, we will visit Akrotiri, one of the most important archaeological sites in Greece. And after hiking and sightseeing, you will have lunch in a national tavern.
The route will end with a visit to the beach with black volcanic sand. After all, what could be more beautiful?
