Description

Our most popular scenic helicopter tour flies over the Queenstown Basin, Paradise Valley and Mt Aspiring National Park. Enjoy an exhilarating helicopter flight over spectacular mountain scenery, impressive ice falls and multiple glaciers before landing on exclusive alpine terrain and stepping out to breathe in the back country wilderness. When conditions permit* you'll land on the glacier itself for once in a lifetime photo opportunities before heading back to Queenstown over hidden alpine lakes and historic Skippers Canyon. *Please note: between January and June, due to the summer conditions such as snow cover changes exposing crevasses, we may not be able to land on a Glacier as our landing locations are limited. In such instances, you will always flyover the Glaciers, but we can’t guarantee a Glacier landing. Your pilot will choose the next best alternative such as landing close to the Glacier or opting for an Alpine landing, either of which will have spectacular views.
