Activity description

Sightseeing in Santorini can be quite exhausting, especially during the summer months, as it gets crowded and really hot! But there is an alternative: you can fly over the island and go sightseeing on a helicopter. During the helicopter tour in Santorini, you will enjoy the great views of Oia, Caldera, and the volcano while flying over the island.

The adventure starts in the south of the island and the first thing you will see is Megalochori and the famous vineyards. Afterward, you will enjoy the views of Nea Kameni, the volcano and the famous Caldera before going to Thirassia. Picturesque whitewashed houses with blue and yellow doors rest to be seen in the area. 

After Thirassia you will be flying towards Oia, the famous village of Santorini. Blue domed churches and colorful houses can be seen close enough from the helicopter. In certain cases, it's possible to fly a bit closer so you can capture the perfect selfie in Santorini. After a while, you will return to the basis in the south of the island.

Looking for romance? Then the sunset tour will be the perfect highlight of your trip. Enjoy the famous Santorini sunset with a helicopter tour! This is an amazing way to see Santorini and get the best views of this awesome island.

Tour incroyable en hélicoptère
  • 5 / 5

A faire au moins une fois dans ça vie. Le tour de l'île était incroyable. Les personnes qui nous ont accueilli, étaient très humaines et gentilles, ils nous ont proposé que l'une de nos amis qui n'avait pas pu prendre de place avec nous, monte quand même dans l'hélicoptère pour que l'on soit tous ensemble. Nous avons bien sûr été très touchée par ce geste. Mais même sans ça, ce tour en hélicoptère au dessus de Santorin et un incontournable, si vous avez les finances bien sûr.

Superbe expérience

The views are great and the pilot explains the most important things you see on the trip. You see Oia getting closer and then you go over it. You can clearly see Fira. You also go over the volcano.

I will never forget this!!
