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 ten scenic drives, and a must-do for tourists visiting the region.

Glenorchy is the gateway to Paradise, and the doorstep to the Southern Alps, Mt. Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks. It is also the shooting location for numerous films, including the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit 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.

Thanks Heli Glenorchy for a truly fabulous experience. Our family had a snow landing and had a ball playing in the snow. The staff of Heli Glenorchy were fantastic and so helpful. And nothing was too much trouble for our pilot Eric. Thankyou very much

We opted to wait until we arrived at Glenorchy to take our helicopter ride and we weren't disappointed. Have never felt so safe, especially when we landed up on this ledge high in the mountain range. The pilot gave us heaps of time to capture photos and was very informative.

So close to Queenstown and such a great experience - so different. The flight only few minutes away from Glenorchy took our breath away. Children were so excited - we will never forget. Thank you for your great service!

We had a fantastic day from the moment we checked in at the office. A very friendly guy took our payment and directed us to the airport. We were given a very thorough safety briefing and then our pilot, Chris, told us what to expect. He was very knowledgeable and gave a great commentary. We landed for a photo op... More

We had an amazing time, in seconds we were off, flew around the delta and landed on a tiny strip of snow with breathtaking views. No problem with the 6 and 3yr old. Great for a family, no training or experience needed.

this was well worth the $! the views were incredible and the pilot was great - he explained the area over which we were flying. the organisation was also v. easy and friendly. also glenorchy itself was such a picturesque town to visit and a lovely not too far scenic drive from queenstown.
