Heli Glenorchy is a locally owned and operated company offering scenic flights across the stunning Mt Aspiring National Park and Fiordland.

Based in Glenorchy, a scenic 45-minute drive from Queenstown, the company operates a fleet of modern helicopters designed for both small and large groups to travel in comfort, flown by a group of experienced pilots, each with thousands of hours flying time.

Scenic flight options:

Glacier Landing
 (allow 40 minutes) - Explore hidden alpine lakes and cascading waterfalls as we head deep into the rugged glacial landscapes of Mount Aspiring National Park.  Look into the depths of plummeting ice-blue crevasses as we fly over some of the region's most spectacular glaciers before touching down for a once in a lifetime glacier landing.

Alpine Snow Landing (allow 25 minutes) - fly over amazing scenery before landing on the snow in the Humboldt Mountain Range to admire the panoramic views over Glenorchy.

The Ultimate Alpine Adventure (allow up to 6 hours) - begin your Alpine Adventure with a scenic drive into historic Skippers Canyon followed by an adrenalin-fuelled jet boat ride through the dramatic canyons of the Shotover River. Soak up the stunning surrounds and old gold mines before being whisked off by helicopter to a mountain top location where the land meets the sky.

Mt. Earnslaw Glacier with Snow Landing (allow 35 minutes) - head into Middle Earth to see the majestic Mt Earnslaw and the hanging Earnslaw glacier before landing on the Upper Humboldt Mountains to enjoy the snow.

Milford Sound Flyover & Snow Landing (allow 50 minutes) - Fly across the Southern Alps discovering native beech forests, towering peaks, spectacular glaciers and hidden lakes before soaring above Mitre Peak and the famous waterfalls of Milford Sound. A snow landing is included on the return trip.

Milford Sound Heli / Cruise / Heli (allow 5 hours) - The ultimate way to experience Milford Sound and Fiordland. Enjoy spectacular aerial views as we fly from Glenorchy to Milford Sound before taking to the seas for a cruise across the world-famous fiord. A snow landing is included on the return trip.

Fiordland - Milford, Beaches & Glaciers (allow 1hr, 15 minutes) - fly the whole length of Milford Sound and land on a remote beach on the West Coast. Take in the fresh sea air and then get back on board for a flight through Fiordland including a glacier landing on the return journey.

Fiordland - Milford, Lakes & Sutherland Falls (allow 2 hours)- head deep into Fiordland and see the mighty 1900ft Sutherland Falls. This trip includes a short nature walk at Milford Sound and a snow landing on the return journey.

Heli Glenorchy also offers bespoke private charters for a special trip. Guests can create their own itinerary with help from Heli Glenorchy's experts who know the area like the back of their hand.
