A Helicopter Tour to Feel like a Celebrity

Is there someone in the family who loves helicopters? The way they rise off the ground like a magic carpet or can sweep above the ground and turn on a sixpence is captivating. Helicopters are both majestic and mechanical marvels. Luckily for Midhurst families and kids, there are plenty of ways to experience the magic of helicopters in Barrie.

A 60-minute sightseeing tour is a great way to sit back, relax and enjoy the view. Or you can channel your inner Hollywood hero and run to catch a lifting helicopter, with the rotors spinning and the wind pushing your hair back. Sorry to crash you back to reality, you won’t even be allowed near the helicopter on the tarmac and cannot exit the aircraft until the rotors completely stop and engines turn off.

But what does feel magical are the views. The earth will melt away until everything starts to look like Lego houses and Matchbox cars. Gliding through the air feels super liberating. Your chopper takes off from the Lake Simcoe Regional Airport, in 60 minutes you can circle over Barrie and Orillia and still have enough time to click the perfect aerial shot of your Midhurst Valley Home.

You could fly to Collingwood or take the Million Dollar Muskoka Cottages tour. You could fly south to see the city skylines from the North end of Toronto or circle around Lake Simcoe and back to Barrie. The options are endless.

If you want to soak up every last view of this gorgeous landscape and feel like a celebrity, you must try this experience. You’ll certainly be the star in the eyes of your kids and your family.
