After passing the city of Lucerne, we fly you across the lake of Lucerne to the 5* boutique Hotel Villa Honegg. This nicely located hotel up in the hill of Bürgenstock offers a beautiful view to the lake and most of all a great Alpine panorama. Villa Honegg is known for its world famous outside pool and a great Spa. Therefore you can enjoy a tea or coffee, a typical Apero with local specialities while we’re waiting for you. Depending on the current weather situation, we fly you back to Berne either via the Emmental or via the beautiful alpine area known as Berner Oberland. This route would include passing Interlaken and finally the city of Thun.
Most of all, this event is suitable for all people visiting Switzerland or Swiss locals who would like to spend great moments up in the air. As a result, tons of pictures will be saved in your camera.
Our passengers will be picked up in the City of Berne at a convenient central pickup location. The drive to the Airport of Berne will take approx. 15 to 20 minutes.
Our helicopters can accommodate two (2) to five (5) passengers per flight.

Seating assignments are based on weights and balance for the flight and are determined by the weight of all passengers traveling. However, on our flights with landing, our pilots will attempt to change seating for the return flight in order to provide different views for all passengers. This information is necessary in order to balance the aircraft prior to your flight. You are responsible for providing accurate weights when booking a reservation for a Leocopter flight-based event. Customers might be weighed at check-in for their actual weight.
In order to create an awesome experience for all our passengers, bags are not permitted on our tours within the aircraft. Some aircrafts have a luggage compartment where bags can be stowed. Please arrive as light as possible. No loose items within in the aircraft are allowed. The pilot is going to verify this during boarding.
After the helicopter tour, the passengers are returned to the pickup location, unless agreed otherwise.
