Book - Heli Glenorchy Snow Landings

Prepare to be wowed. Taking off from the top of Lake Wakatipu in Glenorchy, you are hit with views instantly.

Steep snow capped mountains plunge into the lake as you climb away from civilisation into pure New Zealand. As you fly up to your own snow capped mountain top, enjoys views over the rugged Dart River as it disappears into mount aspiring National Park. Feel dwarfed by Mt Earnslaw as a sea of mountains surrounds you from all directions. 

Then as the helicopter lands in the untouched snow and gently winds down, find yourself in pure solitude. Armed with only your camera and a smile for what will ultimately be  a real once-in-a-lifetime, "on top of the world" photo.


  • Snow Landing: 25 Minutes - The most popular flight. Fly over some of the most iconic scenery in New Zealand before landing on the snow up high on the Humboldt Mountains for panoramic views of Glenorchy, Paradise and beyond. 
  • Mt. Earnslaw Glacier with Snow Landing: 35 Minutes - The flagship local flight into Middle Earth and towards the majestic Mt Earnslaw. Fly up close to the unique 'hanging' Earnslaw Glacier before flying over the Dart River and landing on the Upper Humboldt mountains for a Snow Landing.
  • Glacier Landing: 40 Minutes - Fly over hidden alpine lakes and waterfalls into the glacial landscapes of Fiordland. Get close enough to see deep into the ice blue crevasses of the most stunning glaciers in the Southern Alps. Land on a glacier for that “Bucket List” photo.
