Overview

See Lake Tahoe’s most beautiful spot from above on a 10-minute Emerald Bay helicopter flight. Short but sweet, this aerial tour takes off from South Lake Tahoe and flies you over Emerald Bay, known for its lakeside Vikingsholm Castle and the small island that sits in the center of the bay. Every passenger has a window seat so you can enjoy the best possible views and photo ops.
  • 10-minute Lake Tahoe helicopter tour
  • Fly from South Lake Tahoe to Emerald Bay
  • Look down on Lake Tahoe's most popular natural attraction
  • See Vikingsholm Castle and Fallen Leaf Lake
  • All passengers get window seats
Your helicopter tour starts at the airport in South Lake Tahoe, where you’ll board your Robinson R44 Raven II chopper. The maximum number of passengers per helicopter is three plus your pilot.

Peer out the window to gawk at Lake Tahoe’s alpine landscape as you fly over to Emerald Bay, one of the most photographed sights in North America. Look down on the small island that dots the bay, and catch a glimpse of Vikingsholm Castle that sits on the shore. You’ll also see Fallen Leaf Lake before returning to the airport where your tour ends.

Our first experience in a helicopter was this short trip over Tahoe's Emerald Bay. It was great - easy to park, get ready and go. The pilot pointed out some interesting facts as we flew over some beautiful terrain and the blue and emerald water of south lake Tahoe. We got some great photos and video. Highly recommended

My husband, 11 y.o. son, and I greatly enjoyed the helicopter tour. It was my son's first time in a helicopter and he was a little anxious at first, but the expert pilot made him feel at ease. it was a wonderful shared experience for our family to view the beauty of Lake Tahoe from above. We are planning on coming back to do the Waterfall helicopter tour in the future.

Our helicopter flight around Emerald Bay was amazing. The views were spectacular. It was a wonderful and hassle free experience. Our pilot, Clint, was friendly, personable and very knowledgeable. I've been recommending this flight to friends, and plan on going back to do it again at least once a year. I would rate it a 5 out of 5 stars.
