Zephyr Cove Helicopter Tour

Select Date and Travelers

    What to Expect
    Your aerial adventure starts at the airport in South Lake Tahoe, where you’ll board your Robinson R44 Raven II helicopter. The maximum number of passengers is three plus your pilot.

    As you take off, look out your window to admire the alpine landscape of the Lake Tahoe region. Fly north to the lake shore, and soar over to Zephyr Cove. Then head south and follow the shore to Stateline and Edgewood Golf Course. Fly over the Nevada casinos and along the Tahoe Keys before zooming over to Camp Richardson.

    Next, head over to Lake Tahoe’s crown jewel, Emerald Bay, known for its small island in the center. After this photo op, you’ll return to the airport, where your tour ends.
