Exciting scenic flights and exclusive helicopter excursions to Milford Sound, remote locations in Fiordland and Mt Cook. We are the only helicopter company licensed to land on the Tasman Glacier at Mt Cook. Fly with the pilots who filmed the Lord of the Rings Trilogy and discover many 'Middle Earth' locations. Heliworks has exclusive landing rights in some of the most spectacular locations around Queenstown - ideal for heli-weddings and private picnics.

We went on the "ultimate paradise picnic'. Landed on a snow capped mountain nearby (they asked us if we would like to land on the snow or grass somewhere). We were up there for about an hour and a half, awesome experience!
