50 Mile Helicopter Tour of Undiscovered Wales
Discover the hidden Wales known by so few from a Jet Ranger Bell 206 or Robinson R44 helicopter, taking in panoramic views that are simply unforgettable. From mid Wales airport, head over the sandstone Powys Castle towards the beautiful Lake Vrynwy and over the village of Meifod, said to be the resting place of many Powys royals. Look down at the stone dam over the lake, the first of its kind in the world, and try and spot the 31 rivers and waterfalls which all run into the lake. Continue into the wooded hills towards Pistyll Rhaeadre waterfall, the highest in England and Wales, before returning over the serene Berwyn mountains and down the Severn Valley to Welshpool. Simply breathtaking.
