    New Helicopter Experience at Carlton Hotel St. Moritz

    Christmas is coming early to the Carlton Hotel St. Moritz: from the beginning of December through to end of March, guests of the hotel can indulge in a new Helicopter Experience.

    Guests will enjoy panoramic views as they soar over the snow-capped Alps and the valleys below. They will experience Piz Palü, Piz Badile, the Maljoa Pass and Piz Bernina, the highest mountain of the Eastern Alps, before stopping on Hüfifirn Glacier for a hot drink (or whatever they fancy).

    It’s an unforgettable way to discover the magic of nature in this winter wonderland – be sure to have a camera on hand to capture this breathtaking experience.

    The exclusive flight departs from Samedan, Europe’s highest airport, and lasts 45 minutes. After the flight, guests can enjoy exceptional winter sports, rejuvenate with a spa treatment, or relax with a cocktail.
