Southern Tenerife Helicopter Flight: Los Gigantes Cliffs or Lush Low Island
Marvel at the beauty of southern Tenerife on a 20-or 40-minute helicopter tour. As you fly in a shared 4-seater helicopter, enjoy aerial views of Tenerife?s majestic scenery. See the Los Gigantes cliffs and Mt Teide, and watch for dolphins as you sweep along the rocky southwest coast. Upgrade to the 40-minute flight to continue northwest over pretty towns and valleys, and see more of stunning Mt Teide and El Teide National Park. Round-trip transfers from hotels in the Cristianos-Callao Salvaje area and Los Gigantes are included.

Choose from one of the flight itineraries detailed below, and then start your helicopter experience with a pickup from your hotel in the Cristianos to Callao Salvaje area or Los Gigantes. If your hotel is elsewhere, make your own way to the heliport near Costa Adeje.

Meet your pilot at the heliport and get a safety briefing on the round-trip flight ahead. Then, board your Bell 206 helicopter, fasten your seat belt, and put on your headset so you can hear your pilot?s commentary.

After your flight, savor a complimentary drink at the heliport before your experience ends with a hotel drop-off in the Cristianos-Callao Salvaje area or Los Gigantes. Alternatively, finish your experience at the heliport.

Los Gigantes Cliffs (20 minutes):?
Fly north over Tenerife?s rugged coast past the pretty fishing village of La Caleta. Look for dolphins and even pilot whales, if you?re lucky, in the Atlantic as you fly over Playa San Juan. Peer down at the hotels of Alcala, and take photos as you soar around the Los Gigantes cliffs. Reaching heights of 1,968 feet (600 meters), these steep volcanic walls nose-dive into the sea and are especially impressive seen end-to-end from above. Skirt the pine forests of Corona Forestal National Park, and gaze out over UNESCO-listed El Teide National Park to see Mt Teide, a mountain that looms some 11,663 feet (3,555 meters) above sea level.

Lush Low Island (40 minutes):?
Follow one of the most spectacular routes over Tenerife, to explore both the southwest and northwest coastlines. After tracing the same path as the Los Gigantes Cliffs itinerary, hover over the Los Gigantes cliffs and learn about their colors and formations from your pilot. Then, soar over Buenavista del Norte on Tenerife?s northwest tip. Admire green valleys bordered by ocher-colored petrified lava, and pass the towns of Garachico and Icod de los Vinos, both framed by banana plantations and forests. Peer down at Icod?s legendary dragon tree, believed to be more than 1,000 years old, and drift over the craters and slopes of El Teide National Park for views of Mt Teide and Corona Forestal National Park.
