Soak in the awe-inspiring sights of the Cornish coast by both land and air with a sightseeing experience which is sure to be remembered for years to come. Start with a scenic six-mile hike through St. Ives and along the sensational Cornish coastline and take in the areas outstanding natural beauty on foot. Next, board a five-seater Jet Ranger helicopter and marvel at bird’s-eye views of Lands End and the St. Ives coastline while whizzing through the sky. Back on terra firma, sit down to a lovely cream tea to wrap up this wonderful summer day out. As one of Cornwall’s most interesting areas, St. Ives is a real picture postcard spot, so there’s plenty of chance to take some stunning souvenir snaps during the day.
