Experience the best view in town and land on the Remarkables Spur, overlooking Queenstown and the Wakatipu basin with Coronet and Cecil Peaks in the distance. Gaze down below at the unrivaled scenery featuring cascading mountains and timeless glaciers.
What to Expect
See how glaciers and the movement of the earth’s crust formed New Zealand's unique mountains and valleys over thousands of years–from the sky! Swoop low over mountain valleys and high above meandering rivers. See ancient glaciers, eternally plowing deep scars into the mountain landscape. Plenty of evidence also remains of the rich gold mining history left by Europeans and Chinese gold miners in the late 1800s.
Today, many of the local landscapes can be recognized because of their use as film locations. You can even fly over where the Lord of the Rings movies were filmed! The pilots regularly work with film production crews and are happy to share plenty of stories of life on the film set. Finally, for the photo opportunity of a lifetime, alight on a mountaintop with panoramic views of the entire range and its lakes, valleys, and glaciers.
These highly experienced, well-known local pilots can’t wait to share with you their extensive knowledge and history of the area while showing you the best of New Zealand's amazing scenery.
