What to Expect
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.

What an amazing experience! Excellent service from start to finish! We were a little nervous being our first time in a helicopter but Gerrard our pilot put us at ease and made it the highlight of our holiday. So knowledgeable about the area.

Great afternoon trip to the top of your own mountain. The views are amazing , the quiet of just your group in the snow. The great guide with a lot of local knowledge. Enjoy the views, the lovely snow and feel very very special.

What a brilliant experience, unfortunately due to weather we couldn't land at Remarkables but our pilot Danny landed at Bowen Peak instead. It was breathtaking to land on the snow and get out for photos & snowballs. Danny was so friendly and made us all feel so welcome and safe.

Nothing compares to the sensory extravaganza I experienced standing on top of the Double Cone in The Remarkables and absorbing the majestic and mind-blowing view that can only be accessed via helicopter. That was next level!! Thanks to The Helicopter Line, New Zealand my 13 year
