There is nothing that can compare to a helicopter tour, especially in a very attractive location, as the view you experience is like nothing else. One really has to go up to fully appreciate the sheer beauty of nature, and with that in mind, here is a list of the best places in the world to take a helicopter tour.
  • The Fox Glacier - Located in New Zealand, the Fox Glacier is an amazing sight and one that is best viewed from the air. This 13 kilometre glacier can be found in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park and the tour includes several low passes over Mount Cook before actually landing on the snow to allow you to appreciate the vista from ground level too. 
  •  Sydney & The Blue Mountains - Simply stunning is the best way to describe a flight over Sydney, and with great views of the iconic Sydney Harbour Bridge and the Opera House, this 90-minute tour is the best way to see this part of Australia. There are online companies that offer scenic helicopter flights that take in Bondi Beach and the stunning Blue Mountain range, which is the highlight of the trip.
  • Everest Base Camp - The highest mountain in the world simply has to be on the list, and flying around this mammoth geographical feature will be etched in your memory forever. The Everest Base Camp is more than 5,000m above sea level and the tour includes a landing at the base camp, where you can truly admire one of the most beautiful sights in the world. Make sure you have lots of storage space on your camera, as the trip includes several passes through the Himalayan mountain range.

  • Victoria Falls - Located on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls simply must be seen from the air, as you really do get a clear idea of the sheer enormity of this stunning attraction. You might be lucky and get to see hippos, elephants and giraffes during the flight, which is an added bonus. The largest sheet of falling water in the world, Victoria Falls has a drop of over 100m, and when viewed from the air, you get to see the falls in all their glory.
  • The Grand Canyon - This amazing natural landscape can only be appreciated from the air, and at more than 11 kilometres wide, the canyon is the most famous in the world. If you ever travel to Arizona, you simply must book a chopper ride, as this is by far the best way to appreciate the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon. Once experienced, the Grand Canyon is never forgotten and with some images and video, it will bring back memories every time you look at these amazing shots.
