Helicopter Experience Days: Experience the incredible natural beauty of Snowdonia with this North Wales helicopter tour. This helicopter flight is not just for tourists - it's also a fantastic way for Snowdonia natives to see the area from a whole new, totally exhilarating perspective!

The helicopter flight tour departs from either beautiful Betws y Coed or Llanbedr Airfield, both located in the Snowdonia National Park. After your exhilarating vertical take-off elevates you far above the mountains, woods and waterfalls, you'll head south-west. As you pass over the 13th Century Dolwyddelan Castle, you'll notice more and more stunning landscapes appear beneath you. From the historic mining town of Blaenau Ffestiniog to the picturesque village of Portmerion, and on to Rupert The Bear's home town of Beddgelert, you'll have plenty of fantastic photo opportunities and a host of stunning scenery to enjoy. Keep an eye out for Castle Dinas Emrys, where legend has it that two Dragons were once captured in a cauldron of beer and then buried under the castle! Once you've seen the castle you'll head back towards the start point for landing, flying past Snowdon, Wales' highest mountain, along the way!

This 30 minute helicopter tour is a fantastic and totally fascinating way to see Snowdonia in a whole new light, so if you're looking for an exhilarating experience for yourself or a great gift for a lucky loved one, look no further than the 'Magic and Mountains' Snowdonia helicopter tour!

Amazing experience

What an experience! Bought for my husbands birthday and he loved it! Very informative friendly pilot. Went into a lot of detail about what we were seeing! I did feel the staff doing the briefings etc could have been a bit more informative, I felt a bit confused as to whether we were to go down to the take off site or not, could have been a bit clearer and better organised but all in all an excellent day!

Flight amazing, admin difficult.

The flight was awesome, but we had difficulty booking initially. Having to pay money before we could confirm a date. Also took a print of the voucher as told in instructions, but it was the wrong voucher. This needs to be much clearer.

Experience great, admin not so

The actual flight was fabulous, but the effort to book was difficult, and on the day we were told to take the voucher so we did, but it was the wrong voucher.

The magic of Snowdonia

We had a fabulous time enjoying the heights and sights of Snowdonia from a completely different view point. The helicopter trip was superb. The views were fantastic; the pilot was informative and every thing ran like clockwork. Together with a leisurely lunch in Betws we had a great day out.

First Ever Helicopter Ride

My first experience in a helicopter was amazing. Really well organised with full safety briefing beforehand. Having climbed Snowdonia 3 weeks earlier it was amazing to see it from the air. The Riverside Hotel in Betws-y-coed was a stunning location and 27 degrees the day, couldn’t have been a better location for the helipad. Super exciting day with photo to purchase at the end.

Excellent experience

Thoroughly enjoyed my helicopter flight. Professional and friendly staff/pilot. Despite there being an issue with the timings due to having to use a different helicopter my experience was not disrupted in any way. Have already recommended to friends on Facebook.

Flying with the Birds

Superb experience. Pilot was very informative and mostly correct in his descriptions. I would highly recommend this experience to others. I look forward to a flight from the same location perhaps over a slightly different route again in the near future. All on board were highly satisfied and it was a very successful day all round. See you again soon.

Magic and Mountains

A fantastic 80th birthday present! I had to wait 12 months to get the right weather but it was well worth the wait. Sitting next to the pilot (a very handsome and charming young man) it was like flying over the snowdonia range in a bubble and I cannot wait to go again -friends and family please take note.

Snowdonia flight

Wonderful experience - the route could possibly be refined to take in more of the features visible from the air (eg. narrow-gauge railways, Port Meirion, Electric Mountain, Gelert's Grave. Some form of route-map for the passenger showing terrain would be a great help - to highlight points deserving attention and showing pathway in relation to eg. Menai Straits. I know Snowdonia very well but from the air it must be daunting to the visitor and this would greatly improve their experience by showing them what a vast terrain was being covered and where features were situated.
