Activity description

Take the ride-of-your-life and discover some Turkish delights in this flight over Istanbul, one of the few cities in the world to extend over two continents!

Your 16-minute aerial adventure over the largest city in Turkey starts from Ayazaga airfield where you’ll get to discover iconic landmarks and cultural treasures that were shaped during the Roman, Byzantine, and Ottoman Empire.

Starting from the Anatolian side of this world-class city, you’ll get to take in unique, unobstructed views from above of F.S.M Bridge, (a suspension bridge that connects Asia and Europe), the medieval Anadolu Hisari Fortress, and Küçüksu and Beylerbeyi Palaces. After, you’ll fly above the Kuleli Military High School (the oldest military school in Turkey built in 1845) before heading to the European side of the city.

On your way, you’ll have spectacular views of modern districts and notable buildings like Galata Tower, the Dolmabahçe Palace, and the medieval Rumelihisari Fortress.
The European side of Istanbul also includes having a bird’s eye view of the historical peninsula of Istanbul that includes the impressive Süleymaniye Mosque, the Beyazit Tower, the Grand Bazaar, the Blue Mosque, and Hagia Sophia (an ancient cathedral that was built in 537 AD).
The final leg of this breath-taking tour will take you over the Gold Horn, Taksim Palace, and İnönü Stadium before you make your way back to the starting point!

Why walk when you can fly? Experience the best that Istanbul has to offer in just one incredible helicopter flight!
