Admire the glittering lights of Budapest from above on a private 25-minute evening flight. Settle aboard a private plane, and soar along the illuminated River Danube as its winds through Hungary’s capital. Gaze down at floodlit landmarks including the Parliament building, Chain Bridge, and Castle Hill, and take in views of the Gellert Baths, Gellert Hill, and Gellert Citadel bathed in lights. Pre-flight Champagne and hotel pickup and drop-off are included.
Sunset is the best time of the day for flight
Begin your flight experience with a pickup from your Budapest hotel before sundown. Your time of pickup will vary according to the time of year, and accordingly, the time of sunset.
Settle inside your private, air-conditioned vehicle, and relax as you journey through the city streets to the airport. On arrival, be welcomed with a glass of Champagne to celebrate the occasion. Then, after savoring the bubbles, meet your pilot, and climb aboard your modern private plane.
Listen to a safety briefing, fasten your seat belt, and take to the skies for your unforgettable 25-minute flight. Take-off will be timed for exactly an hour after sunset, when the city’s lights are illuminated and begin to look their best as the dusk sky fades into black.
Your plane will trace the River Danube as it winds through the city, flying parallel to the water and over the beautiful Buda side of the city. Taking this route showcases incredible views of the sights of both Buda and Pest, as well as the illuminated bridges that span the famous river.
Admire the floodlit magnificence of the Hungarian Parliament Building with its lights reflected in the river waters, and gaze down at landmarks such as the Chain Bridge, Castle Hill, Royal Palace, Gellert Hill, and the exquisite Gellert Baths, all of them aglitter with lights. In addition, enjoy wonderful views of the Danube as its winds into the distance, marked out by the glow of Budapest's lamplit waterfronts.
After about 25 minutes in the air, touch down at the airport, and enjoy a convenient transfer back to your hotel, bringing your experience to a close.
