Without any need to move from our seats and feeling we are floating in the air, this unusual point of view lets us get immersed in the landscape.
Taking into consideration that the Ushuaia is beautiful from any perspective, we can be sure that seeing it from above will take our breath away. A flight on board a helicopter reaches every corner of the bay, the lakes and the surrounding hills.
The meeting point for our outing was the office of Heliushuaia in the center. Logically, our expectations responded to those of a person who had never boarded such an aircraft. In a few minutes, we were taken to the old airport of Ushuaia on a truck. Once everything was ready and each of us got on the helicopter, the action began.
The roaring engine let us know we were taking off. We ascended quickly almost vertically and flew over the bay. It was a wonderful show. We continued gaining height and entered the Olivia River Valley, where Mounts Olivia and Cinco Hermanos boasted their summits. The pilot told us the hues usually change according to the season.
