Overview
Fly over the high peaks of the Remarkables Mountain Range on a sightseeing helicopter tour that includes an alpine landing. Seeing The Remarkables by helicopter gives you access to the mountains' most remote snowfields, rugged terrain, and backcountry glaciers, hovering above Lake Wakatipu for spectacular views.

Highlights
  • Take in a dramatic mountain landscape from above
  • 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
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.

Myself and my partner Ethan had a wonderful trip with Ben the pilot taking us up the Remarkables mountain range, and a very gentle landing on some lovely snow. All the staff were very friendly and professional, a big shout out to the fabulous Ivy who booked and checked us in

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.
