Helicopter pleasure flight over Snowdonia and the beautiful West coast of Wales from Llanbedr Airport
Departure Point: Llanbedr airport
Flight Time: 30 Minutes
Max Weight: 17st per person
Your flight starts from Llanbedr Airfield, on the beautiful welsh coast in Snowdonia National Park, heading north along the coast to the magnificent Harlech Castle, a World Heritage site built in the 13th C by Edward I, originally the once sea lapped the cliffs at the bottom of the castle but over the centuries has receded to where you see it today.
Portmerion, the picturesque Italianate village made famous by the Prisoner TV series, looks idyllic as it nestles in woodland off the Dwyryd estuary, and watch out for the Dragons at Castle Dinas Emrys! The two Dragons were captured in a cauldron of beer and buried beneath the castle. Capel Curig and The Ugly House are other landmarks of this tour, but of course it is Mount Snowdon itself at 1085m and the highest in Wales, that is the highlight. Sir Edmund Hilary trained here before climbing Everest, and legend has it that a giant killed by Arthur is buried on its summit. The summit isn’t always clear of cloud of course, but the views of Snowdonia National Park are always magical.
From Capel Curig you will fly south, passing over the castle at Dolwyddelan, built in the 13th century by Llewellyn the Great. The breathtaking range of scenery continues to unfold beneath you as you pass by Blaenau Ffestiniog, before heading back to Llanbedr and great view of Shell Island, a favourite holiday destination for many families.
