What to Expect
Travel reference:

Experience exceptional views of Queenstown and Southern Alps with a scenic helicopter ride, including an Alpine landing!

Departing from Queenstown, you get to enjoy the diverse landscapes of the Wakatipu Basin on a helicopter flight. Choose from a 20 minute, 30 minute or 50 minute scenic flight all with an Alpine landing. You have the chance to fly past the canyons of the Shotover River, the ski slopes of Coronet Peak and rural retreats and villages of Queenstown with the Grand Circle tour. You can see Lake Wakatipu and Queenstown, views of mountaintops and experience an alpine landing with the Queenstown Panorama tour. 

Fly straight up from the base to a ridgeline on the Remarkables tour 1538m above Queenstown. In winter when you land you'll have snow at your feet and mid-summer you'll perch on rugged mountain terrain. Or choose the Southern Glacier Experience with which you can venture from the base to the Southern Alps spiny mountain ranges. You'll witness first hand Mount Aspiring, vast untouched tracts of native forest and ancient glacial icefalls before landing amongst the snow-capped peaks of the Mount Aspiring National Park.
