All about the trip
Experience an incredible helicopter ride over one of the most beautiful regions of France, the Archachon bay, near to the famous city of Bordeaux.
Before the flight begins, a fully qualified and experienced pilot will give you a briefing about flying along with an explanation of the helicopter you will be in.
After you take off from the airfield of Arcachon, you will fly for 12 minutes over the Dune du Pilat and then north over the national park Banc d'Arguin.
Heading further north, you will then pass by the Cap Ferret-Pyla and then by the sea. Upon discovering the Arcachon basin, you will be amazed by its sparkling colors which constantly change with the tides. You will fly between the bird island, Tchanquée and Arcachon, its waterfront and its beaches. Then you will fly near the east coast overlooking Audenge. This will be followed by a return passage between Gujan Mestras and Teich.
The Arcachon Bay is a bay of the Atlantic Ocean on the southwest coast of France, situated in Pays de Buch between the Côte d'Argent and the Côte des Landes, in the region of Aquitaine. The bay covers an area of 150 km² at high tide and 40 km² at low tide.
Altogether, there is a lot to see at the Arcachon, so please do remember to charge your camera batteries and bring an extra memory card; because we know from firsthand experience that you will want to take more photos than you originally intended! Also, don’t forget to bring some sunglasses too as it gets quite bright over the sea on summer days.
This helicopter ride is quite simply an unforgettable experience over one of France’s most beautiful regions.
