Pilot's Choice Scenic Flight from Queenstown


  • Land high in the mountains to see The Remarkables up close

  • Enjoy 20 minutes of flight time in a maneuverable copter

  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Queenstown hotels


Meet a driver at your Queenstown hotel for transfer to the helipad, where you’ll board a helicopter that seats six passengers in an open plan cabin that’s ideal for views. Lift off above Lake Wakatipu as the pilot points out landmarks on the ground, and look for the peaks of the Southern Alps on the far horizon. Watch the mountains approach as you fly over the Remarkables Mountain Range, then return to earth for a high mountain landing. You’ll have time to take a few memorable photos before climbing back in the helicopter for the beautiful return flight to Queenstown.
