What You Can Expect

Make your own way to Arcachon Airport in time for a 3.30pm flight departure. After meeting your pilot and listening to the safety briefing, jump aboard the helicopter and take off over Arcachon.

On the 20-minute flight, soar over Arcachon town, then set out along the coast, soaring over the beaches, dunes, and islands of the Arcachon Basin. Along the way, listen as your pilot points out natural wonders and sights of interest, including the towering Dune du Pilat — the highest sand dune in Europe —, the jutting cape of Cap Ferrat, and the national reserve of the Banc d'Arguin.

Finally, swoop low over Bird Island, then gaze out along the Leyre River as you come back in to land at Arcachon airport.
