St Petersburg Helicopter Tours
Experience Breath-Taking Views of Russia's Northern Capital


Our St Petersburg helicopter tours can be summed up in one word – spectacular! Find out why!

Seeing the ornate and colorful rooftops of St. Petersburg's historical buildings from the sky might not be the most inexpensive way to tour our city, but for those of you who don't mind the extra expense, it can be a lifetime experience!

There is no doubt that a sweeping view from the sky gives you a great chance to capture all the main city's landmarks in one picture. When you're up 1,000-feets you can look down on a landscape that's made up of beautiful rivers and canals, islands, and bridges that connect all of St. Petersburg. For example, the view of the top of the Church of Our Savior on Spilled Blood, St. Isaac's Cathedral, or the Winter Palace is an architectural masterpiece that can only be described as breathtaking.

All our St Petersburg Helicopter Tours focus primarily on sights over the central part of the city but also Tsarskoe Selo, which is home to Catherine Palace; and Peterhof, which is home to the Grand Palace and its famous parks and gardens. Each helicopter can host from a minimum of 3 passengers up to 7 passengers maximum. And the length of tours lasts from 15 mins to 60 mins, depending on the route chosen.

Once you're up in the sky, you won't only enjoy a flight that takes your breath away and makes the hairs stand up on the back of your neck, but also, you’ll get the ultimate panoramic view of our charming and vibrant city.
