More detailed description >


Lake Lanier and the Chattahoochee River form some of the most scenic landscapes in the Atlanta area, and there's no better way to take in their beauty than from the sky.

Lake Lanier has 1,200 miles of shoreline, multiple islands and two magnificent rivers, the Chattahoochee and Chestatee, that join together to flow into the Lake.

Site of the rowing events for the 2006 Olympics, the 38,000 acre Lake Lanier has many marinas and is extremely popular with boaters, houseboats and jetskiers.

After circling the Lake and its islands you'll pass over the dam and proceed towards Atlanta following the river. You'll fly above some of the area's most beautiful homes lining the rivers banks as you make your way back to land.

A scenic flight not to be missed!

"Absolutely loved it, and it's mainly because of Anne Paya, the pilot. She was such a pleasure and made the experience great for both of us. The tour was for my husband as a Valentine's Day gift. Anne is top-notch and it was greatly appreciated. It was beautiful over Lake Lanier and very enjoyable. Only drawback was it ended way too soon for the distance we drove to get there from Ellijay, GA. Would have been great to be able to leave from Blue Ridge and fly down to Lanier and back."
