are specific excursions by light aircraft which are intended to provide an aerial view of a particular range of landscapes which may otherwise be inaccessible or remain unappreciated. They typically start and finish in the same location, although may involve intermediate stops for picnics or sightseeing in locations along the way.
They are therefore different from flights which connect you from one place to the next and tend to be booked as an additional paid activity rather than forming an essential part of the journey.
