Strap in and prepare for some serious heights and spectacular sights. This exhilarating helicopter tour is one of the most exclusive and luxurious ways to see the stunning capital.
The impressive Imperial tour will set off from the Tagus River and take you over iconic landmarks, such as the Belem Tower and Torre de Belem. It will then fly over the huge, 500 year old Jeronimos Monistery – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, set on the shoreline.
Your helicopter (fancy…) will then glide over the 25 de Abril Bridge, a 2227 metre bridge that stretches across the Tagus River and connects the capital of Portugal to Almada. It is often compared to the world-famous Golden Gate Bridge. The next soaring sight is the historic, 28 metre tall Cristo Rei – inspired by the landmark Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio de Janeiro. You'll get a fantastic view of the bustling, thriving centre of the capital, Baixo. The broad squares and cobbled streets are strewn with Lisbon's oldest and busiest buildings. Your personal flying machine will end over the Moorish Castle, Castello de Sao Jorge, which overlooks all of Lisbon from its hilltop location.
