Top Cities of Israel to Tour by Helicopter


When planning a tour to Israel, one is always encouraged to “pack comfortable shoes” because “there will be plenty of walking.” Naturally, the shared experience of every tourist is to travel by foot and bus, but with the time you have, you can only cover so much of the beautiful scenery this land has to offer!

Maybe the lust for adventure will catch you upon seeing the view from high places like Mt. Precipice in the north. Standing on tip-toe on the edge of the rocky mountain, surrounded by the modern city of Nazareth and the fields beneath, you’ll be thinking, “I wish I could see more.”

The good news is, with our one-of-a-kind helicopter tours, that dream can become a reality! With just a little courage, you’ll be elevated (literally) to a whole new view, one uninterrupted by buildings, traffic on busy highways, or time. Completely and utterly free as a bird!


Caesarea, Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee


Firstly, as you soar safely into the sky, you’ll lay eyes on the shimmering blue-green water of the coastline and the ancient ruins of Caesarea, the Roman and Crusader city.

Next, you’ll feel one with nature as you hover above the rich agriculture of the biblical Megiddo and the Jezreel Valley. You’ll be in awe of the vast plains that stretch below – the results of Israeli farmers’ hard labor, waiting for the harvest: wheat, watermelon, oranges, chickpeas, cotton, sunflowers, and corn.

From there, you’ll witness the great Mt. Tabor towering in the distance and the humble and beautiful city of Nazareth, Jesus’ hometown. Follow the footsteps of Jesus to the Sea of Galilee and the Golan Heights. All that raw beauty is bound to inspire you as you hear the history of each unique place; you’ll never again look at them the same way.

Jerusalem, Judean Desert, Dead Sea, and Ein Gedi

The capital of Israel, Jerusalem, is also known as the City of Gold. You’ll discover just how true this is from a birds-eye perspective as the sun reflects off the stone from which the houses and buildings are constructed, creating a golden light. Watch the city go about its daily life as you overlook the modern neighborhoods and the old city from a distance.

Moving south, you will immediately find the magnificent and breathtaking Judean desert and the Dead Sea, surprising with shades of color one can only see from above. When you then encounter Ein Gedi, a desert oasis, you’ll know you’ve hit the jackpot – palm trees, rivers, and waterfalls. It’s a popular tourist spot and home to mountain gazelles and hyraxes. You’ll be astounded at how Israel has managed to make the desert flourish!

Golan Heights and the Chateau Golan Winery 

You’ll start your journey flying over the white beaches of the Mediterranean Sea shore, then turn east along the Kings Route to the Sea of Galilee. As you hover over the lake, you’ll learn how Israel maintains and preserves its primary freshwater source. Proceeding to the magnificent Golan Heights, you’ll hear a thorough explanation of the Syrian-Israeli conflict and how Israel’s I.D.F. protects its borders and people. Then, take a refreshing break at Chateau Golan, one of the finest wineries in Israel. Be part of the culture as you sip on the best of high-class wines, leaving you with a taste for more! 

Our helicopter tours are a dynamic, memorable, and time-saving way to see the land. During these part-day trips, you will ascend to great heights and descend again to eat lunch and drink wine, take a dip in the water, and see the sights before taking again to the skies. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see Israel from a perspective most never will!

But don’t take it from us; listen to the words of the famous aviator and world traveler, Amelia Earhart: 

“Everyone has oceans to fly if they have the heart to do it… What do dreams know of boundaries? No borders. Just horizon – only freedom.”
