The queen of all helicopter experiences, a long exciting overflight of the spectacular Sicilian volcanoes and the beautiful Aeolian islands for an unforgettable tour that will remain forever engraved in your hearts!

After a breathtaking takeoff, the helicopter will begin to fly over the Etnean territories and the villages of Piedimonte Etneo and Linguaglossa towards the Peloritani mountains, past which the Tyrrhenian side of Sicily can be seen reaching the coast of Milazzo.

Flying over and leaving Punta Milazzo, one will enter the part of the flight that heads toward the Aeolian Islands, admiring the archipelago already from here, and with the island of Vulcano on the left, one will point directly toward Stromboli and its lively active volcano. Alicudi and Filicudi can be seen in the distance. Upon reaching Stromboli the route will continue in the direction of Panarea, perhaps the most glamorous and chic of the archipelago with its characteristic white houses and yachts moored off its shores. From there it will continue to the renowned island of Salina, rich in greenery, followed by Lipari, the main island of the Aeolian Islands and Vulcano with its sulfur pools.

It will return over Sicily near the Sanctuary of Tindari, well known to Sicilians and home to a small Greek theater and archaeological excavations.

Flying over the Nebrodi Mountains again we will ascend to the majestic view of the 4 summit craters of Mount Etna, the highest active volcano in Europe.

After a final glimpse of the coastline connecting Catania to Taormina, vineyards and lush crops, you will return to the helipad. You will be able to admire the breathtaking beauty of these wonders of nature from above, enjoying dreamy views from a unique perspective.
