Canigou Helicopter Tour
At the time of your choice, we'll take off from Perpignan airport to head for the most beautiful areas of the Eastern Pyrenees.
We'll start the helicopter ride by flying over Castelnou, one of the most beautiful villages in the Occitan region. This picturesque village, which extends across the valley at the foot of the Canigou massif, is noted for its imposing medieval castle, and we'll have a bird's eye view of this fortress!
We'll continue the helicopter ride by flying over the famous Saint Martin Abbey. The monastery stands on a rock of the Canigou massif, which is situated at an altitude of 1055 metres. From the air, the panoramic views of this place are extraordinary!
The route through this beautiful part of the historic Roussillon region will continue on to the castle of Corbère. Did you know that the origins of this bastion date back to no less than the 12th century?
Finally, after a 15-minute flight, we'll end the helicopter ride by landing at Perpignan airport.
