Itinerary
After pickup from your hotel in Queenstown, head to the airport to meet your helicopter pilot.

Receive a safety briefing then board the modern 6-seater Airbus Squirrel helicopter. Lift up into the air and soak in spectacular views of Skippers Canyon, the Wakatipu Basin, and Queenstown.

The route depends on the day's snow conditions. Your helicopter tour includes land in the snow on one of the region's peaks, with snow landings happening year-round. After 30 minutes, return to the base in Queenstown where you are transferred back to your hotel.
