Tenerife is an island filled with contrast, from the bright colours of the golden sand or black volcanic beaches, verdant green palm trees, brilliant blue ocean and sky, vast pine forests and the absolutely stunning Teide National Park with the enormous Mount Teide as the centerpiece, dominating the middle of the island at a height of over 3,700 metres!

If you think you know Tenerife from spending a week at the beach here though, then you really haven’t experienced much of the island at all. Even if you have taken the time to explore and seen more than just your hotel and local beach, there is another unique perspective of Tenerife that you really must experience. We recently took to the skies with the brilliant Helidream Helicopters for a helicopter flight and it was absolutely amazing. The views were seriously stunning and really allowed us to appreciate the beauty of this incredible island.

Tenerife is our home and we have seen so much of the island already, that we must admit even we sometimes take for granted how truly great it really is. This can happen even for the best places like Tenerife, when you’ve seen many of the same views multiple times. Sometime it takes experiencing somewhere in a new way or trying something new to remind yourself again how lucky you are. Almost all of Tenerife is beautiful or has something of interest to see, but viewing it from the air will really show you how it is as you will be treated to a bird’s eye view.

If this is your first flight in a helicopter which for most people it likely will be, then you can be forgiven for feeling at least a slight twinge of nervousness. This is completely understandable at it is a new experience that for many is out of their comfort zone. You will be flying up into the sky and soaring above the land below in a form of transport that most people never get to experience. Once you arrive at the Helidream heliport though you will meet the excellent team that works there, including the friendly manager of the company Luciano. Before your flight you will be shown a short safety/instructional video and the team will be more than happy to answer any questions you have.

Shortly afterwards you will head out to the helicopter, where you will be strapped in safely and be given your headsets. While you may still be feeling a little nervous at this point, your safety is of utmost importance to the team who thoroughly check everything which should completely ease your fears. Once the pilot is ready and the rotor blades up to full speed, the helicopter will ease off the ground and off you go up into the sky.

The sensation of taking off in a helicopter really is incredible and any last nerves you may have had will immediately turn to excitement, as you feel an amazing rush of adrenaline. It offers a totally different flight experience to that of being in a commercial plane as you feel far closer to the action.

While the helicopter does fly at an incredible speed and high above the ground, it is really exciting rather than scary, as you zoom rapidly through the air taking in Tenerife’s incredible sights from the air. The best part of the trip is being able to marvel at the island from perspective that normally only birds have. We opted for the South coast tour, taking in familiar sights but from a totally different perspective.

You can see straight down into the impressive gorges and ravines, look down at all the beautiful villas and their palm tree lined gardens with bright blue swimming pools, view the verdant green golf courses which are in stark contrast to the volcanic landscape, and fly straight over the vibrant, colourful coastline with stunning sandy beaches, bright blue ocean and La Gomera in the distance. You will also catch a glimpse of Teide in all its splendour surrounded by the giant Teide National Park when you head back to the heliport.

The South coast tour is just one of the brilliant flight options which you can choose to take with Helidreams Helicopters who offer an absolutely fantastic service. When you are holidaying in Tenerife or even for those that live here looking for something new to try, you should definitely experience a helicopter flight with Helidream Helicopters. The flight may be over relatively quickly but the memories will last for a lifetime, plus of course your photos and videos will make everyone back home just a little bit jealous!
