Sightseeing in Santorini can be quite exhausting, especially during the summer months when it gets crowded and really hot! But there is an alternative: you can fly over the island and go sightseeing on a helicopter. During the helicopter tour, you will enjoy great views and experience unforgettable moments. The activity is suitable for a group of friends or for those who like to make new acquaintances, true romantics, families, wedding anniversary celebrations, or a marriage proposal.

Our fleet is an Airbus AS350 for up to 5 people and a Bell 206 for up to 4 people.

Tour highlights:

  • Make yourself comfortable on board and prepare for the memorable trip
  • Admire a spectacular view of the caldera and whitewashed villages perched on the volcanic rim during a helicopter sightseeing tour
  • Enjoy sightseeing from a bird’s eye view
  • Capture pictures from an amazing vantage point

How to prepare:

  • Comfortable clothing
    (dark clothing, as light clothing will reflect in the windows and this will affect your photos)
  • We recommend wearing layers
    (even on a warm day, it can be chilly, and the wind generated by the rotor can be strong)
  • Walking shoes (no flip-flops)
  • Do not wear long and loose jewelry
  • Passports and ID cards for all participants

Cancellation policy:

  • 48 hours or less: no refund
  • 48+ hours: 10% cancellation fee

The adventure starts in the south of the island, and the first thing you will see is Megalochori and the famous vineyards. Afterward, you will enjoy the views of Nea Kameni, the volcano, and the famous Caldera before going to Thirassia. Picturesque whitewashed houses with blue and yellow doors rest in the area.

After Thirassia, you will be flying towards Oia, the famous village of Santorini. Blue-domed churches and colorful houses can be seen close enough to the helicopter. In certain cases, it’s possible to fly a bit closer, so you can capture the perfect selfie in Santorini. After a while, you will return to the base in the south of the island.

    Travelers love 105olives

    We are working hard to make sure our guests enjoy their travel experiences with us. We let our customers' testimonials speak for us.

    We went to Crete last year and had the best local experience going through them. Especially the gastro tour, and absolutely loved Chania and the villages! We organized everything with them from transfers to tours and dining - everything went smoothly with great communication. Highly recommend using their services if you want a true local experience with excellent seamless service. Thank you Katerina and team!

    Crete’s top boutique travel agency and personal concierge service. This has been an unforgettable experience for my me and my wife and we cannot commend enough Katarina’s passion for history and her extensive knowledge of the island. Look to her to take you to places on Crete that are rarely revealed to the average tourist.

    We were on a tour through 105olives. I definitely want to share only positive vibes from the communication, service, and experience we received. Katerina is a very friendly, professional, and moreover nice person herself. I have been traveling worldwide and 105olives tour services are one of the best indeed. Highly recommended.
