Lisbon sightseeing in taken to new heights by this helicopter flightseeing operation. Flights take in some of the Portuguese capital's most emblematic points of interest, and depending which tour you opt for include fly pasts over monuments like the fabulous Mosteiro dos Jeronimos, the iconic Ponte 25 de Abril suspension bridge and the landmark Castelo de Sao Jorge. Departing from a helipad in Alges, the flightseeing experience varies in duration from 10 minutes to 1 hour. The helicopter's range stretches beyond the city limits to destinations like the coastal resorts of Estoril and Cascais. It's also possible to reach places like Sintra to hover over stunning attractions like the ancient Castelo dos Mouros and the beautiful Palacio da Pena. Tailor-made itineraries can also be arranged to fly to other parts of Portugal like the Alentejo or even as far south as the Algarve.
