Let us show you this beautiful part of our world from a perspective like no other ... Let us show you this beautiful part of our world from a perspective like no other ... Heli Glenorchy is a locally owned and operated helicopter company, offering spectacular scenic and commercial flights from Glenorchy, gateway to Paradise and Middle Earth. Glenorchy is located at the Head of Lake Wakatipu. The spectacular 40 minute drive from downtown Queenstown to Glenorchy is rated as one of New Zealand’s Top 10 scenic drives, and a must-do for visitors to the region. Glenorchy is the gateway to Paradise, and on the doorstep to the Southern Alps, Mt. Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks. It is also the location for numerous films scenes, including the Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit Trilogy, Wolverine and Mission Impossible 6 movies. We recognise that for many of our customers, visiting New Zealand and flying into the untouched beauty of Fiordland and Mount Aspiring National Parks is a once in a lifetime opportunity. So we keep our fleet small, we keep the experience personal, our operation safe, and we deliver that once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget.

We are a couple travelling to queenstown from india in the first week of november. We are interested in snow landing heli tour. We just want to know, whether we need to book the tour now itself or we can do spot payment on the day of tour. I just wanted to know, if I book the tour now and if our tour gets cancelled because of poor environmental conditions, we will get any refund?
