We had the most fantastic experience on a helicopter pleasure flight over the Llyn Peninsula! This is an amazing way of getting the best views of Criccieth Castle ruins. This is not a cheap activity but for a special treat (it was our 25th wedding anniversary) it is on of the  amazing things to do in Criccieth!

I was absolutely mesmerized by all of the toy sheep, the beautiful fields, mountains and the captivating coastline. The  water from above is so clear, you could easily be on a Caribbean island!

Our pilot Daniel was amazing! So knowledgeable and accommodating. He gave us running commentary as  we flew across the Llyn Peninsula pointing out things of interest and made a special effort to spend extra time over Criccieth castle and our cottage. It was wonderful to see our lovely neighbours waving from their back garden. See below for a photo collage of some of the views along the way.

There are various helicopter pleasure flight trips that you can take, each having various costs and trip lengths.

Take a look at http://www.caernarfonairport.com for more information.

The airport is only half an hour from the cottage. There are just so many wonderful things to do in Criccieth!

You can take helicopter pleasure flights, take flight lessons, or visit the museum and cafe. See Criccieth Castle Views!to read the full blog.
