The tour starts at the heliport in the Port of Motril in the direction of the Alpujarra through valleys and ravines, that descend from the peaks of Sierra Nevada to the Gudadalfeo river basin.You will fly over Motril, discovering the attractives views of the city, Velez de Benaudalla and its castle, the Rules dam and the Guadalfeo river basin. The Alpujarra is an area of great natural beauty and sharp contrasts, with large ravines as the Barranco del Poqueira (declared historical), and its three unique villages Pampaneira, Bubión and Capileira, with fertile valleys with abundant fruit trees and vineyards, such as the Trevélez River Valley, with the small whitewashed villages like La Taha, Pitres, Mecina Fondales o Ferreirola. From here you will enjoy incredible views of the Mediterranean Sea. From the Alpujarra, you will descend to the helipad across the Sierra de la Contraviesa, which will give us a contrasting landscape with rugged and steep ravines, vineyard plantations and almond growing areas. This will be spectacular in January / February, when the almonds blossoms are blooim¡ng and turning the hills white and pink.

The heliport in Motril is the second private heliport authorized by AESA in Andalusia. It is located in a privileged environment, surrounded by mountains to the north (Sierra Nevada and Sierra de Lujar) and the Mediterranean Sea to the South. In fact, it is located by the water, so that take offs and landings are always done over the sea, enjoying spectacular views of the snowy peaks of Sierra Nevada, what makes it unique.
