What You Can Expect
With its ability to hover, land and provide access to some of New Zealand's most remote areas, a helicopter is the ideal choice for sightseeing that will take you up close to towering peaks, crevasse filled glaciers and sparkling waterways.
Learn about the stunning landscape as your professional pilot delivers an informative commentary en route.
The scenery during our helicopter flight landing on the Jura Glacier was simply breathtaking. Callum our pilot pointed out local attractions along the way. His landing on the virgin snow was smooth and confident. We witnessed the very rugged landscape up close and got good value for our money. We were picked up from our accommodation and returned as part of the deal. All went like clockwork and our souvenir photo now sits prominently in our living room as a reminder of a truly remarkable experience.
Tour was awesome. Great views, smooth flight, polite staff.
We'd previously been on a helicopter over the Franz Josef glacier but this time we thought we'd try one of the Queenstown flights - we opted for the 50min ride. Dave our pilot was very friendly and informative. It was our son's first ride in a helicopter and he got to sit in front with his grandmoth
Fantastic experience....I'm not a great flyer but the pilot was fabulous, informative and very reasuring
Had an amazing trip, the weather was perfect for a trip to Milford Sound , scenery was unforgetable.
This is a must do on your trip to Queenstown.
When all other companies were offering 8 mins and 3 mins, your flight was 50 mins and it was extremely good value for money. The pilot was knowledgeable and friendly but the main thing is the flight didnt feel like it was over too quickly. It was a memorable experience. Loved every minute of it.
Absolutely fantastic! Not to be missed. Some turbulences to give you just the right amount of thrill and the landing on the glacier just made the best Xmas present ever. Beware of the repeated cancellations due to Queenstown's changeable weather conditions though.
