Discover one of China’s greatest historical treasures from a bird’s eye view with Four Seasons Hotel Beijing. As part of the Four Seasons Extraordinary Experiences program, guests can soar above the iconic Great Wall at Mutianyu in a private helicopter, taking in panoramic scenes of one of the most impressive man-made architectural wonders of the world, from the air.
Guests can enjoy refreshments en route from Four Seasons Hotel Beijing to Mutianyu Great Wall as they ride in a luxurious private limousine. Mutianyu, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is the only place along the Great Wall with a helicopter launch pad for aerial excursions. Upon arriving at the lift-off location, guests can relax in the private resting area while sampling delicious dishes from the Hotel’s exclusive catering service.
A professional go-pro camera will set up in the helicopter to record this extraordinary flight, while guests receive an audio tour via headphones. After the helicopter touches down, guests will receive a Certificate of Completion, complete with a photo and official chop, as a memento of the flight before enjoying a lunch box or picnic lunch on-site, courtesy of Executive Chef Jackson Wu and his talented culinary team. Guests should contact the Concierge at least ten days in advance to enjoy a picnic lunch, or two days in advance to enjoy lunch boxes.
“As a Beijinger, I am proud to provide guests with a unique aerial view of this extraordinary historical site,” says Peter Tang, Chef Concierge at Four Seasons Hotel Beijing. “Mutianyu is one of the best places to see the beauty of the Great Wall. The views are clear and unobstructed, and one can take in views of sections of the original Wall as it stretches through valleys and across hilltops. I truly believe this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience that will create memories that last forever.”
For an elevated experience, guests can choose to follow the flight with a hike along the Great Wall with a dedicated Four Seasons Hotel Beijing tour guide to see the ancient wall up close.
