Highlights
    What to Expect
    Select from several departure times and head to the helicopter base after pickup from your centrally located hotel in Queenstown. On arrival, you'll be checked in before you board the modern Airbus Squirrel. Then slip on your audio headset to hear the pilot’s commentary clearly and take off on a scenic 20-minute flight.

    Soar above serene Lake Wakatipu and the rugged backdrop of the Remarkables, a range in the Southern Alps. You'll land for 10 minutes on a spur overlooking Queenstown, Coronet Peak, and Cecil Peak. Amid the snowy surroundings, snap photos of the panoramic views. Then it's back in the helicopter for your return flight to the base and a transfer back to your hotel.

    My partner and I used these guys for our heli wedding and they were on the ball with replying to any questions I had, organised the celebrant and photographer and made sure the day ran smoothly. Everyone was super lovely and I couldn’t of asked for a better way to get married.

    The most amazing way to see Queenstown. We chose the combo that included the 60 minute jet boat ride and the 20 minute remarkables helicopter flight. Great value for money and would highly recommend it. The staff were all very friendly and knowledgable which made the experience

    We wanted to book a 50 min glacier landing. Our hotel staff phoned and we ended up booking 20 mins. The problem was that the flights aren’t confirmed until an hour before you leave and then you have 40 mins to get to the airport. This threw out or whole day - our flight needed
