Heli-Hikes

Wanaka

Walking and Hiking Lord of the Rings Tours Tours Mountain Activities

The tour runs from November to April with pick-ups at 8.30am and 1.30pm. Moderate fitness is needed for the hike.

Eco Wanaka Adventure's 'Misty Mountains' Heli Hike is a must for Lord of the Rings fans, and anyone wanting to admire panoramic views of the stunning scenery around Wanaka.

The 4.5 hour guided tour includes three helicopter flights. The first landing on Fog Peak, allows visitors the chance to admire the views, which include Mount Aspiring and the Southern Alps as well as several sites used as locations in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

From there, the helicopter will take guests to a landing site at Treble Cone, another Rings location. After admiring the view, film fans can walk in the footsteps of the characters through the 'Misty Mountains' during a two-hour hike back down towards Wanaka. Rock pillars, glaciers, and canyons can all be seen on the trek.

While film fans will enjoy spotting different locations during the downhill walk, nature lovers are also well catered for with plenty of native flora and fauna as well as the chance to see some local wildlife. Birds are particularly abundant including the falcon and the inquisitive Kea, New Zealand's cheeky mountain parrot.

The tour runs from November to April with pick-ups at 8.30am and 1.30pm. Moderate fitness is needed for the hike.
