What to expect
After pickup from your hotel in Queenstown, head to the airport to meet your helicopter pilot. Receive a safety briefing then board the modern 6-seater Airbus Squirrel helicopter. Lift up into the air and soak in spectacular views of Skippers Canyon, the Wakatipu Basin, and Queenstown. The route depends on the day's snow conditions. Your helicopter tour includes land in the snow on one of the region's peaks, with snow landings happening year-round. After 30 minutes, return to the base in Queenstown where you are transferred back to your hotel.

A Once in a Lifetime WOW experience!! WOW WOW WOW!!
Dec 2020
This was one of THE most beautiful experiences of our lives!! Yes this a mind-blowing scenic experience, and yes the Remarkables are truly that!! BUT but to see it all from a helicopter with an experienced, genuine, great guy / helicopter pilot - THANK YOU Jeremy, and to do it as our fun little family, my husband and I, and our 18-year-old puppy dog Brutus was a lifetime memory of WOW!!

Overall, an awesome experience. Purchased the package including the Shotover Jet. Flight was just long enough for my partner who was afraid of heights. We both felt safe with our pilot Andy who was very experienced and had the smoothest landings. Also appreciated the courtesy shuttle and our driver Luke who is a top bloke! Definitely recommend and would visit again.

Matt immediately put us at ease. He obviously loved his job. He took care of us and was engaging. Landing on the snow after a mountain is certainly something to remember. Thank you Matt ☺️

Stunning Flight, great staff
Sep 2020 • Couples
Absolutely wonderful experience, up to the snow line on the Remarkables above Queenstown. Stop off for 15 min and bubbly while we’re there. Helicopter running whilst we walk in the snow and marvel at the scenery. Our pilot, Luke. Was fantastic, great customer service and tour guide. Liv, on the desk was so friendly and helpful too. Highly recommended

Fantastic Scenic Helicopter Flight Experience
Dec 2019 • Family
Thank you for a fabulous Scenic Flight over Queenstown. Our pilot, Matt was fantastic, great commentary and photographer. The customer service of all the staff was excellent, would highly recommend this company for your helicopter flight. First time in a helicopter for my two boys and they were thrilled with the experience. Thanks so much. 🚁💕
