It’s a 4-hour tour of Barcelona and its surrounding areas by strolling through the old Gothic Quarter, gliding the coastline on a Turkish Goleta, and – most excitingly – flying across the city and landscape by helicopter. On the ground and in the air, tourists can spot the hidden areas of the city, including Port Vell, Barceloneta, the Olympic Port, and the Olympic Village from these incredible views that no one can get anywhere else. They give these tours in English, Spanish, French, and Italian.

Catalonia is not just about Barcelona. It is about the nature that surrounds it and the Mediterranean it is part of. Fly over the region on the helicopter tours, see everything at once from the comfort of being inside – and flying in a form that is much cozier than being a massive group of people on a bus. It is much more intimate and it truly shows a corner of Spain that defines Europe’s exterior as a whole beauty.
