Helicopter Sightseeing Tour (Shared or Private)

Option 1: Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in the North of Mauritius (25 minutes)

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.

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

This package is a fantastic way to enjoy aerial views of the northern islets in Mauritius. Fly over the Coin de Mire (Gunner’s Coin) islet located off the North Coast where the crystal lagoon offers you a clear view of the vibrant aquatic life. Next, you’ll get a glimpse of the famed red roof church as you continue your way across Cap Malheureux village.

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!

End this wonderful trip with a sensational view of Labourdonnais and its lush vegetation, followed by the luxuriant green sugarcane fields and charming small villages with colorful rooftops, before landing at Triolet.

Option 2: Helicopter Sightseeing Tour in the West and South of Mauritius (45 minutes)

Fill up your memories of Mauritius with the best-selling 45 minutes tour, taking off from the north of the island at Triolet base, following a warm welcome by the team.

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. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for the Albion Lighthouse.

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.

Overlooking the south-western lagoon is the majestic Le Morne Brabant, an official UNESCO heritage site. Home to several tropicbirds as well as indigeneous vegetation, this magnificent mountain with a summit of 556 metres 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 famed 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 a 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!
