Mr Charles plans your heli skiing adventure

Flying a helicopter in winter conditions requires skills and experience. Mr Charles pilots will fly you safely over and over again to some of the greatest slopes near Åre, Sweden.

A heli-lift however is always dependent on the weather. During days of snowfall, low visibility, or strong winds the tour needs to be postponed.

When flying with Mr Charles you do not have to plan, stay updated about the weather conditions or keep in touch with a booking agent. We will do the planning and make sure that a helicopter will be ready for takeoff to the best slopes as soon as the weather allows.

Meanwhile you can enjoy one of the various other activities in Åre, or just relax in your private ski lodge.
