What You Can Expect

Rio de Janeiro Helicopter Tour

Rio de Janeiro Helicopter Tour

Your helicopter tour over Rio de Janeiro begins with pickup from your hotel. You'll be given a safety briefing and all necessary equipment upon arrival at the helipad. Then, hop into the helicopter and let your experienced pilot take you on an unforgettable aerial tour over the ‘marvelous city’ of Rio!

Flight time on your sightseeing heli-tour is 11 minutes – plenty of time to take in Rio’s top landmarks from the air. Hover above Maracanã Stadium, built to open the 1950 World Cup and renovated to seat more than 103,000 spectators for the 2014 World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics Opening Ceremonies.

Soar over the golden beaches of Ipanema and Copacabana – as well as Sugar Loaf Mountain over Guanabara Bay – and see the residential neighborhood fringing Rodrigo de Freitas Lake. Your pilot will fly around the Christ the Redeemer statue crowning Corcovado Mountain, ensuring great photo ops of Rio’s most famous monument from every angle.

After you disembark from the helicopter, you'll be dropped off at your hotel.

What an amazing experience. The views of Rio from above are spectacular. The air time is short but we felt like we got our money's worth.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

It was a good experience. Although it is quite short (11 minutes) we could see a lot of Rio from above. The weather was not perfect, pretty windy around the Christ Redeemer but the pilot kept us safe. Also Anna (the guide) made the trip from hotel to heliport and back amusing.
