Original Ideas for a Special Holiday: Air based Adventures and Tours around Sicily

With all the rich variety of things to see and do in the jewel of the Mediterranean, air tours are the best method to capture as much as possible of the splendour of Sicily and its Aeolian and Aegadian archipelagos, especially if yours is a short holiday trip and time or work constraints will not permit a visit to all the archaeological sites and nature reserves. Photography and videos from above will add a special touch of originality to your holidays in Sicily. With a bird’s eye view of the landscape and panorama around the Mediterranean, Ionian and Tyrrhenian you are bound to have the best memories of your trip preserved forever for everyone back home to enjoy. And who knows, you may even consider submitting footage to some of the best resources like National Geographic and the numerous nature magazines or webzines which offer photo contests. Having your photos published will make your holiday truly unforgettable and is a perfect way to share your experience with others world-wide.

Consider a private helicopter tour of Mt. Etna and its craters, or over the volcanic islands of Stromboli and Volcano; fly over the Greco-Roman temples and ruins of Agrigento and Taormina’s Greek Amphitheatre where you can get a perfect geographic view of their layout without having to travel by car or hike from one location to the next. This will also save you time and money on gas, leaving you more time for your vacation which is always a plus. Hitch a ride on a hot-air balloon from Enna, and thrill yourself with tandem parachute jumps above Syracuse and Ragusa to view the scenery of the Baroque medieval towns of Val di Noto which lie undisturbed and trapped in the medieval past. Tandem paragliding can also be arranged at exotic locations starting from Palermo, Taormina and Caltagirone.
