Viewing wonderful landscapes like Lake Garda and its shores from a bird’s eye view was once an exclusive dream. Thankfully, today that dream is a reality. Map services such as Google Maps or Google Earth offer fascinating views on your computer monitor, while the great popularity of camera drones means there are countless small films of the Lake Garda landscape. But nothing beats a sightseeing flight by helicopter over the lakeside landscape and the regions around Lago di Garda.
Lake Garda from above – breathtaking panorama
Helicopter flights on the popular Lake Garda, between the regions of Lombardy, Veneto, and Trentino-Alto Adige, are an exclusive pleasure. The exclusivity is not necessarily financial, as the space in one of the comfortable helicopters is limited. These tours offer magnificent and unique views of the landscape, which is only possible from a bird’s eye view.
Providers of sightseeing flights often take off from Montichiari Airport near Brescia, not far from Lake Garda. Of course, an individually arranged take-off and landing point is also possible – for example, directly on the grounds of the Eden Reserve. Even a half-hour flight reveals fascinating views of cities, towns, and landscapes on the shores of the lake. Many hotspots of Lake Garda are flown over, such as Sirmione and Peschiera del Garda in the south, Salò, Gardone Riviera (which offers a view of the Eden Reserve Hotel & Villas), Limone sul Garda is on the western shore of the lake, with the mountains of the Alto Garda Bresciano Nature Park behind. On the eastern shore, helicopter passengers soar over the flowering hills of Monte Baldo, with bird’s eye views of beautiful Malcesine and Torri del Benaco.
Exploring the diversity of the Lake Garda region on a helicopter tour
From the gentle plains of the south to the alpine rocky landscapes between Limone and Riva del Garda in the northwest, which drop steeply into the lake, a helicopter flight showcases the diversity of the different landscapes around Lake Garda. Longer scenic flights also allow views of the lakes and beautiful landscapes around Lago d’Idro, Lago di Ledro, and Lago di Cavedine. Monte Misone, in the pre-Alpine landscape to the north of Riva del Garda, offers trained mountain hikers a great panoramic view of mountain panoramas and Lago di Garda, and by a comfortable and luxurious helicopter, the view is even more magnificent.
Comfortable and safe – sightseeing helicopter on Lake Garda
Providers usually use helicopters such as the Robinson R66, which offers space for four passengers, while for sightseeing flights with up to six passengers, the Airbus A109 is a good choice. A tour usually lasts 20 to 60 minutes, depending on the charter flight booked. Of course, airlines also offer private charters for one or two people. Something very special, for example, is a gourmet flight to an exclusive restaurant around Lake Garda or in the mountains – the dinner is sure to be an unforgettable experience.
Booking a helicopter tour – uncomplicated and convenient
Flight appointments are best made by telephone with one of the airlines at least two days in advance or can be conveniently organised and arranged by the Eden Reserve concierge. If the weather should exceptionally prevent a flight on the exact date agreed, a new round flight is simply scheduled.
