fall foliage in the Hudson Valley

See the Hudson Valley’s fall foliage in blazing color!

Book your flight time now to reserve a private helicopter tour during peak foliage season for the ultimate leaf-peeping experience or enchanting getaway!

There’s no better way to witness the Hudson Valley region’s beautiful fall foliage than from the sky on a private helicopter tour. Blazing orange, red, and yellow leaves offer unparalleled sights for all to see during leaf-peeping season which lasts from September to mid-October. As the leaves change, the rolling hills paint a tapestry of vibrant colors along the region’s scenic landscape.

Take in aerial views of some of the Hudson Valley’s must-visit spots, including Mohonk Mountain House and the Walkway Over the Hudson. Marvel at the magnificent Hudson River as it winds down the valley, and see the Shawangunk Mountains, lovingly referred to as “The Gunks” by locals, standing high above the basin as you fly through the sky.

The 360° view of the Hudson Valley’s fall foliage during peak leaf-peeping season sets a picturesque backdrop for a romantic getaway, iconic proposal, or an unforgettable adventure.

Tracy Minnich Neer View from the Helicopter

“The pandemic forced us to find an alternate way to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary and Heather turned out to be the silver lining on our silver anniversary. Now we can’t imagine having spent it any other way! Seeing the brilliant fall colors enveloping the Hudson River, Mt. Beacon & West Point from this viewpoint was utterly fascinating. We highly recommend booking a tour with Independent Helicopters. Heather’s company is top notch and you will not be disappointed. Kudos to you, Heather! Thank you! We’re still smiling!”

“I had the pleasure of going up with David. The scenery from above is breathtakingly beautiful and honestly I can’t wait to do this again! David was informative and knew all the good spots to see. Thanks to him, I was able to take some gorgeous pictures. I was very at ease for my first time in a helicopter and had a wonderful time. Highly recommend taking a tour with Independent. Keep up the great work all. :)”
