A Flight over Boldt Castle with 1000 Islands Helicopter Tours

We’ve toured with 1000 Islands Helicopter for Tourism 1000 Islands blogs, so when a guest was coming to visit, I knew a flight would be unforgettable this time of the year.

1000 Islands Helicopter

Amber, Adventures of an Oxymoron, had added a *small* detour to her road trip, lured by the beauty of the #1000islands and the chance to see them from the air. She was coming up through Canada, and we were happy to host her for a little while before continuing on her journey.

Flying Over Gananoque

The tour begins over the beautiful and charming Town of #Gananoque! This is where we get the first glimpse of the frozen St.Lawrence river with minimal snow cover.

Patterns. Texture. Colour.

The winter beauty of the #1000Islands had me captivated – I could not take my eyes off the landscape passing below us. We were lucky that some river areas were clear of snow, giving us uninterrupted views of the dark ice covering the water surface.

Boldt Castle Flyover

Seeing the beautifully restored Boldt Castle is a highlight for me everything I explore the 1000 islands – especially by helicopter! ?? ?

I love an excuse to fly, and that day was perfect for it. Clouds dotted the big blue sky, but the sunlight chased those shadows away for our double sweep around the castle.

Snow Covered Landscape


The afternoon light played over the #ThousandIslands and the St.Lawrence River, shadows danced across the frozen landscape as we wrapped up another amazing tour with 1000 Islands Helicopter Tours / Kouri’s Kopters Inc.

Flying into the Sun

I always come home with a million memories – and just a *few* pictures!

Even though it was mid-afternoon, it felt like we were flying into the sunset – what a superb ending to our day!

Although I concentrated more on taking photos – as you may have already seen – I did shoot a little bit of video!

As always, I wish our flights were never-ending, and the minute my feet touch the ground, all I wanted to do is fly again with 1000 Islands Helicopter!
