Take a helicopter straight up and over the city from the downtown heliport and see the world aglow with light. The City Lights Tour is perfect for long winter nights and provides a breathtaking experience in any weather. Clear skies are magically filled with stars. Cloudy skies and wet streets make the reflections of the lights even brighter. 
Take in the color and pageantry of Portland after dark!
Portland has its own special mood at night. Bridges and stadiums backlit, skyscrapers glowing, street lamps and car lights leading out into the surrounding hills and valleys. City Lights tours are available in 15 mile, 25 mile, and 35 mile distances, approximately 15 minutes, 20 minutes, and 25 minutes respectively. Choose your preferred distance during check out..
