BREATHTAKING LANDSCAPES OF COASTLINE, INCREDIBLE VIEWS OF THE ALHAMBRA AND FLY INTO THE TAJO DE LOS VADOS CANYON. WITHOUT DOUBT, THE BEST OF GRANADA!
After having weighted you to make weight and balance of the helicopter and having received the initial explanatory briefing, you proceed to board the helicopter.
We start from our helipad at the Port of Motril towards Velez de Benaudalla, where we can see its castle to then, after crossing Beznar dam and following the foothills of the Sierra Nevada, head to the impressive monument of the Alhambra, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, where you can enjoy not only the wonderful views of the Alhambra Palace, but the Generalife Gardens and the Albaicin.
On our way back to the coast we will cross the Lecrin Valley, with its orange and lemon trees plantations, the Beznar Reservoir, nestled in the Izbor river valley, breathtakingly beautiful and the Sierra de los Guajares, after which the Guadalfeo river Valley appears, providing us a spectacular natural monument, Tajo de los Vados Canyon, a river gorge formed by the Guadalfeo River for millions of years, with cuts of up to 330 ft in which the helicopter will enter for your enjoyment, becoming in one of the most special moments of the flight.
From there we head to Salobrena, beautiful whitewashed village with medieval structure built around the wall and the Moorish castle, which crowns the village, to then head for the coast of Almunecar, the tourist capital of the area. From there we go to the Punta de la Mona, headland above the sea, with its beautiful marina and Playa del Muerto and its incredible mansions, and of course, unusually transparent waters, islets of stone, and a wonderful view of the bay of La Herradura.
We end by heading back to our helipad, watching the famous and gorgeous subtropical fruit plantations of Almunecar.
