Explore the famous traditional fishing village of Elounda from above. Your private helicopter tour will begin from Elounda from where you will fly over the island of Spinalonga, which was an important Venetian fortress that became a leper colony in 1903. Up next prepare yourself to see one of the most beautiful areas of Crete, Lassithi Plateau which is located high up on the Dikti Mountains and is not only an impressive landscape but a unique geological phenomenon.
You will then head over to the South Coast passing by Ierapetra which has always been an important center of the island. Get a unique perspective over Makry Gialos, a popular coastline filled with secluded bays and quieter beaches, flying over Goudouras which is a coastal village located in a large valley surrounded by the rugged mountains and canyons of the area. You will also pass over Xerokambos which is a quiet farming settlement and Kato Zakros which is a small settlement with only 50 inhabitants. Most visitors come here during the day, to admire the Palace of Zakros and to spend a day in one of the most original, unspoilt and non touristic areas of Crete.
You will then fly over Sitia, the main coastal town of East Crete heading to the North Coast. Climb into the skies for a bird’s-eye view of the mesmerising Mirabello Bay and Agios Nikolaos, one of the most popular tourism destinations in Crete. This 60-minute aerial tour ends in Elounda.
