A short transfer aboard a van brings you to the helipad, located on Barcelona's harbor. Once you have had a chance to get settled into your seat, your expert pilot will guide your helicopter into the air, from where you will admire extraordinary views of the city.

Soar over many significant sights, including the harbor, the city's 19th-century district, Gaudí'sSagradaFamilia, Tibidabo Hills, Barcelona Soccer Club's playing field, Olympic Village and the Olympic facilities in Montjuïc.

At the conclusion of your ten-minute flight, return to the helipad, re-join your minivan and continue on a panoramic sightseeing exploration of Barcelona.

You will first proceed with a drive through Colon Avenue to admire the monument to Christopher Columbus, before reaching Picasso Boulevard by the side of Ciutadella Park. Admire the Arch del Triomf, built for the city's International exhibition of 1888. Arriving on VíaLaietana, you will also see the historic Roman and medieval walls, which still surround part of Barcelona's main Cathedral of Santa Eulalia.

Be sure to notice the striking modernist-style homes along Passeig de Gracia before crossing Diagonal Avenue and heading for the magnificent, unfinished SagradaFamilia. After pausing for photos, you'll continue to Barcelona's modern quarter, which is home to many financial institutions and elite residential properties. You will also pass the Pedralbes Monastery, which dates to 1326.

Finally, you will ascend Olympic Mountain to the Mirador del Alcalde viewpoint to pause for photos before returning to the ship.
