Full description
What could be more romantic than taking a helicopter to a gorgeous hidden spot in the Southern Alps? Make it happen in Haast, and top it off with a gourmet picnic lunch. Embark on the ultimate romantic experience with your loved one — fit even for popping the question. Enjoy pilot commentary of the major landmarks and history timed perfectly to the flight. Cascading waterfalls and hanging lakes are just some of the visual treats awaiting you as you cruise over South Westland's World Heritage Area. Marvel at snow-capped mountains, the bright blue of the glacier lake, and the lush greens of the vegetation. Discover the true wonders of the Haast region on this stunning flight through the majestic Hidden Valley at 3,000 feet above sea level. Fly over many highlights of New Zealand's back country and then land in the mountains so you can soak up the atmosphere of this isolated region. After you have had your fill of food and wine, your pilot will fly you to the Haast base, concluding the incredible one-hour journey.
