Ker & Downey’s Guatemala and Honduras helicopter tour first begins in the magical town of Antigua. Over two days, discover why this is one of the best preserved and most beautiful colonial cities in the Americas. Immerse yourself in Guatemala’s Spanish and Maya heritage, and set out on a guided walking tour through the city. Along the way, pass by breathtaking monuments and explore an authentic coffee hacienda.

Lake Atitlán

Then board your private helicopter for a stunning flightseeing transfer over the Guatemalan Highlands and Lake Atitlán. Upon landing, enjoy a private boat ride around Lake Atitlán’s villages. Moreover, stop to learn about the multigenerational weaving techniques of San Juan la Laguna. Plus, visit Santiago’s pagan saint Maximon.

Copán, Honduras Helicopter Tour

From Lake Atitlán, your Guatemala and Honduras helicopter tour transports you across the border to the famous Copán Valley of Honduras. Indeed, Copán serves as the home to one of the largest and most elaborate centers of the Mayan world. Explore this lush UNESCO World Heritage Site and retreat to your accommodations for authentic Maya cuisine and the enveloping calm of the forest.

A private helicopter will then transfer you to Petén in northern Guatemala. During your two days here, tour the peaceful ruins of Yaxha and the fascinating archaeological excavations of Tikal. Tikal, of course, is the city and ceremonial center of the ancient Maya civilization and the largest excavated site in the Americas. Enjoy a plethora of eco-adventure activities from your jungle-clad cabana before flying to Guatemala City. Upon arrival, enjoy a special guided tour of the city and the indigenous clothing collections of The Ixchel Museum.

Pico Bonito

Finally, your Guatemala and Honduras helicopter tour concludes back in Honduras within Pico Bonito National Park. Indulge in two days of tropical fun: raft down rivers, hike to waterfalls, visit manatee refuges, and luxuriate in The Lodge at Pico Bonito’s 400 acres of pristine wilderness.
