Barcelona Helicopter Tour – BCN Travel

28 Jun 2018

If you’re after a truly unique and unforgettable experience in Barcelona then what better than a bird’s eye view of the city with a helicopter ride.  Offered by BCN Travel it offers 3 different tour choicest varying tour length and price points.

The one we were able to experience was the Costa Tour, the shortest of the 3 lasts 6 minutes and is priced at €79 per person, you have the choice of booking a single seat and sharing with other passengers or buying the 3 passenger seats available for a private trip.
With only 3 passengers (and the pilot). eat means everyone gets a prime window seat, so perfect to capture the best images of your adventure.

Located in Barcelona’s cruise ship terminal the heliport is a short walk/cab ride from the beach. Upon entering you have to register and get get your weight taken (there is a 110kg limit) and after a short induction you’re ready to go. You are given a headset to wear to protect your ears from the loud sounds made by the helicopter.

While 6 minutes may seem like a short time you actually get to see a lot, the day we visited had fine weather so views were amazing.  All the famous monuments are visible ad the views make for great photo ops.  An unforgettable experience.

If you fancy going on longer trips then there are two further options.

Sky Tour – The summer version of this tour (there is also a winter one) lasts June to October and the tour duration is 12 minutes,  starting with the port along the old town and the beaches to Diagonal and Port Forum and from here we will continue further along the coast and the beaches. Priced at €125.

Montserrat – Priced at €340 but lasting a whopping 40 minutes this tour takes you over all of Barcelona’s highlights and onto Montserrat, which is known as the most sacred place of Catalunya.

So if you’re looking for something a little bit extra while on your visit then a helicopter is a well justified splurge.
