Helicopter Rides in Switzerland

If you’ve always dreamed of flying in a helicopter, My-Mountains can help.


You may think of your helicopter as mere transportation, taking you from one location in and around to another. Imagine flying over the mountains, seeing the bird view of a lake or wherever your dreams and your budget takes you. 

A helicopter excursion offers an amazing picturesque view of the landscape while providing an experience you will never forget. The helicopter or as it was known as a rotary winged aircraft, has come a very long way since the days of the simple Autogyro.  

Choose the longer tour. The longer tour is a better deal.


Don’t bother with the so-called front-seat upgrade. You can book the seat in advance, but there is no guarantee you will get to claim it. Seats are assigned based on passenger weight, not on who buys the front-seat upgrade. That way the weight will be divided evenly in the helicopter. By pure dumb luck, you could wind up in the front without paying for the upgrade (likewise, you could pay for the upgrade but end up sitting in the back).

You’ll regret it if you don’t bring a digital or film camera with you on your tour or at least a fully charged mobile phone to help you remember your trip.

Vacationers often opt for an exciting day trip of sightseeing on Swiss helicopter rides. The air tours provide thrills, chills, and an adrenalin rush. If your budget is tight or you don’t have a ton of free time, helicopter tours are a great way to see the Swiss landscape. To many people, tours on helicopters are a unique and most remembered way to explore a region and fly above the stunning scenery.

Here are a few tips to keep in mind when you begin planning your tour:

  • Of course, keep in mind what you would like to see. A mountain like Matterhorn or Eiger and Jungfrau, a city Like Lucerne or Bern.
  • Take your time. The helicopter ride may be short but it takes a while to get ready for it. Be sure to be there on time. 
  • Make sure your phone and camera are fully charged. 
  • If you have time, plan a land Tour as well. Getting to know the ground with a local guide before flying is a great way to enjoy most of your flying time. You will see the landscape from the air and also close up from the ground. 

Enjoy your next Helicopter Ride!
