About
Fly over the city and explore Christchurch from new heights. See the progress of the massive rebuild and the abandoned suburbs from the 2010/2011 earthquakes. Swoop over Godley Heads and then up to Port Levy, the biggest Maori settlement in the Canterbury region during the 19th century. Then touch down next to Mt Herbert and enjoy breathtaking views of Lyttelton Harbour, originally formed by volcanoes six million years ago.

I was gifted this helicopter flight for Christmas... The flight was 45 minutes long so perfect for a first timer like me... Not too long and not too short. We took off over the Christchurch Airport and across the city towards the Port Hills.. Landed next to Mt Herbert where we were able to exit the helicopter and get some photos. One word.. AMAZING! Have included just one of the many photos I took on this flight... I was made to feel very welcome and safe thank you to the amazing staff at Christchurch Helicopters. Fantastic gift idea, am so happy I got the chance to do this...
