Hmm...we can’t seem to find this place. Please check the spelling, or choose another location.

This activity will end right where it started.
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.

Stopping on the top of the remarks amongst the snow was incredible. Our pilot made sure to take some pictures of us, and when we landed the team offered to drop us into town instead of back our hotel which was awesome.

First time in a helicopter and we are hooked. The experience and the views from are unforgettable. Must do in Queenstown. Your hands do get a little chilly up there when taking photos.

Very good experience but poor communication
Don_G
, Jan 2022
There is little missed communication, I inquired using viator whatsapp to inform my place of pickup, but on the day, I had to call them and learned that they don’t pickup on residential. No calls or any form of communication until the app message on the day of schedule. So they expect to use and communicate by app. But overall, the experience was good, this is our first so I can’t compare. The pilot is accomodating, smiling but not jolly which is fine.
