2. From Lisbon: Estoril and Cascais Panoramic Helicopter Tour
Feel the thrill of flying with a scenic helicopter ride departing from Lisbon. Take in aerial views of Estoril and Cascais, marvel at the striking coastline, and come across Tejo River and Forte de São Julião da Barra. After checking in and the safety briefing, board the helicopter and take off from our heliport in Algés. Fly over the stunning Tagus River Estuary, witnessing the splendid views of the Bugio lighthouse and the Saint Julian Fortress, before embarking on a journey along the entire coastal line to Cascais. Find beautiful beaches such as Carcavelos, as well as steep cliffs, picturesque villages, and places of interest like Estoril's Casino, where Second World War spies for both sides fought for information. Marvel at the charming town of Cascais, the summer holiday location of the Portuguese Kings. See its crystal clear waters, golden sands, and lush green forests. Explore several natural reserves, including the Boca do Inferno Nature Reserve, which features dramatic cliffs and caves. Admire stunning architecture with a mix of traditional Portuguese and modern styles, dominated by the Cascais Citadel, a fortification that was built in the 16th century to defend the town from pirate attacks. Come across several beautiful palaces and mansions, many of which were built in the 19th and early 20th centuries by wealthy Portuguese families.
