25 Mile Helicopter Tour of Snowdonia
Known as home to Wales's tallest mountain, Snowdonia National Park is also the home of amazing myths, legends and giants! Hop into a Robinson R44 or a Jet Ranger Bell 206 helicopter and fly over some fascinating sites, starting at the Riverside Inn at Bettws y Coed. Go over Chapel Garmon, a Neolithic burial site, then onto Fairy Glen, a scenic gorge rumoured to shelter the mystical creatures it's named for. Pass over Conwy Falls, where ladders are installed to help salmon migrate, and fly over the stunning castles of Dolwyddelan. Go north over Capel Curig, famed for its natural beauty, before returning over Llanrwst, home to giant Ifan Groch, and pass over Swallow Falls, Wales's highest continual waterfall, before landing. Magical.
