Gain access to South Island splendor with aerial views over Lake Wakatipu on a 20-minute helicopter flight and landing in the Remarkables mountains. After hotel pickup in Queenstown, you’re transferred to the helipad to board your twin-engine, six-passenger helicopter.

Buckle in and soak up the sights as your professional pilot delivers informative commentary en route to your landing site. With its ability to hover, the helicopter is an ideal way to take in the stunning alpine landscapes including the sparkling waterway of Lake Wakatipu below.

Your scenic flight provides up-close views as you soar above the Remarkables mountain range. Then hop out for a alpine landing with a panoramic vista all the way to the Southern Alps. Once you’ve snapped plenty of selfies, climb back into your helicopter for the return ride to the base, where you’re transferred back to your Queenstown hotel.

Absolutely amazing! The staff were friendly and having them pick us up was super helpful. The helicopter ride itself was great and the pilot was informative about surrounding areas. The alpine landing looking over Queenstown was the highlight and 10/10. I would reccomend everyone do this, it’s such a great experience and the views are stunning, you truly feel like you’re on top of the world!
