Full description
For the 30-minute helicopter sightseeing flight,  experience the spectacular sights of Rio de Janeiro from the sky. As you take off from the airport located near the Olympic center, head upwards and fly towards the shores of Barra da Tijuca.

The captain will take you along the shoreline over Rio’s fabulous beaches of Barra da Tijuca, Joatinga, São Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema and Copacabana. Next, you’ll see highlights of the city, which include Sugarloaf Mountain and the impressive Christ the Redeemer statue, standing atop Corcovado Mountain. Enjoy plenty of opportunities to take unique photos while hovering in the sky.

Alternatively, upgrade your tour to the 60-minute tour which is the same as the 30-minute tour but also includes flying over the Modern Museum of Art of Niterói, Santos Dumont Airport, Downtown Rio, Maracanã Stadium, Tijuca Forest, and more. Book your flight during the day, at sunset or in the evening up until 8 PM.
