Full description

Enjoy a 20-minute scenic helicopter tour and alpine landing for incredible views of Queenstown from above. Your pilot will choose your flight path and landing location for the best possible experience on the day.

After pickup from your central Queenstown hotel, enjoy the short drive to the helicopter base at the airport. Meet the friendly crew and check in for your flight.

Then, take to the skies to marvel at Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown from above. Your experienced pilot will share local insights with you and point out areas of interest.

Your pilot will choose the best location on the day for your alpine landing. Only a helicopter will be able to land in the remote spot. In winter, you’ll have snow at your feet, and during summer expect stunningly rugged terrain.

Fly back to the helicopter base where your tour will conclude with a transfer back to your hotel.

    It was the most spectacular and amazing thing we have ever done as a family. Our pilot Pete was just so informative and just a great guy. He did a amazing job! We would definitely recommend it to our friends and we would love to come back and do it again.

    The highlight of our trip and an experience we will be talking about for a while. We were so excited to learn we would be landing on snow and were able to get some great family photos in the process. Make sure to bring a phone or camera!! Also shoes that won’t get wet from the snow.
