Allow your chauffer to escort you by private vehicle from your Crystal ship to the airport in Basel.

Once aboard the helicopter, fasten your seatbelt and prepare for a thrilling flight over stunning Swiss landscapes. Your pilot will guide the aircraft in the direction of Alsace, soaring over the mountain peak called the Chasseral. Part of the Jura Mountains, the Chasseral overlooks Lake Biel and is one of the most isolated peaks in Switzerland. Continuing over the Jura Mountains, marvel at astounding views of the three lakes below: the Neuenburgersee, the Bierlersee and the Murtensee. Rising in the background, the Alps form a striking panorama. To afford you a different perspective on the scenery, your pilot will make a mountaintop landing.

Disembark your aircraft to contemplate breathtaking views and enjoy refreshments at a mountain restaurant. Enjoy about one hour of relaxation and ogling at the views before rejoining your helicopter and continuing your scenic flight. You will be treated to views of waterfalls and the city of Pratteln, located on the Rhine, as you follow the river and make your way back to the airport in Basel.

An exciting flight drawing to a close, return by private vehicle to your Crystal ship.
