Helicopter Sightseeing Shared Tour

Why not make your stay in Mauritius more memorable with a helicopter flight?

So many landscapes are waiting to unfold before your eyes- the island has been beautifully carved by Mother Nature with scenic coasts and rainbow-coloured earth. Start this great adventure and get a bird's eye view of Mauritius from a comfortable, executive helicopter.

This package is perfect for those looking for an affordable but classy way to explore the island, whether it’s on your own or with a partner. A warm welcome awaits you at the base, where you can enjoy the comfort of the lounge while waiting to board the helicopter. You will receive a short briefing about your flight before the wonderful journey starts!

You can choose to either have an express 20-minute scenic tour of the North of Mauritius or explore the West and South of Mauritius from high above for 40-minutes. Let the magic of Mauritius take over with this Shared Sightseeing tour, bringing you the best of Mauritius.


Option 1: Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in the North of Mauritius (20 minutes)

The flight route from Triolet will give you an overview of the magnificent northern landscapes. Admire the swarm of daily activities in the lively coastal village of Grand Bay and the array of fishing boats from high up the sky.

You will also fly over the Coin de Mire (Gunner’s Coin) islet located off the North Coast and get a glimpse of Flat Island (l’île Plate), home to several endemic species. This package is a fantastic way to enjoy aerial views of the northern islets in Mauritius.

Towards the end of the flight, you will fly over Ile d’Ambre, where the Saint-Géran ship was sunk a few centuries ago. This incident was the main plot of the legendary story of Paul and Virginie by the French writer Bernardin de Saint-Pierre and even today, it is believed by some of the islanders to be a true incident!

This Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in the North is the most amazing way to see the northern region from a completely different perspective and appreciate everything this incredibly beautiful island has to offer – beautiful islets, mountain ranges, natural landscapes, and more.

On your way back, you will be able to gaze at luxuriant green sugarcane fields and charming small villages with colourful rooftops.

Option 2: Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in the West and South of Mauritius (40 minutes)

Seen from the sky, the busy city of Port-Louis is a wonderful sight. The sixteen silos of the Moulin de La Concorde and the ships at the dock will mark the beginning of your helicopter tour. Do not forget to keep an eye out for the Albion Lighthouse. You might even get to see the famous race tracks of Champ de Mars, the oldest horse race tracks in the Southern Hemisphere.

From flying over green spaces and blue lagoons, you will soon reach Benitiers Island (Ile aux Bénitiers), a diamond shaped coral island, which should make for quite a sight. Then, overlooking the south-western lagoon is the majestic Le Morne Brabant, an official UNESCO heritage site. This grand basaltic mountain with a summit of 556 metres (1,824 ft.) above sea level, bears an enormous cultural significance as a symbol of the slaves fight for freedom during the colonial period.

You will then fly over another wonder, the Underwater Waterfall. This natural illusion, with its shades of blue and green seem to plunge to infinity while at Chamarel, the kaleidoscope of coloured-earth will leave you in awe. The next site will be the Black River Gorges where you can admire the endemic flora and fauna of the reserve. Nearby you can admire the waterfalls of Tamarin, which appear as just thin curtains revealing rocky plates sculpted by nature.

En route back to the north of the island, the Pieter Both mountain is one of the key mountains of Mauritius. The legend tells of a man who broke a pact with angels and was thus transformed into mountain. Another iconic mountain you will see, is the Le Pouce mountain. If you haven’t been able to climb this mountain, then an overflight will be an absolute delight!
