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.

We booked this last minute as bad weather had caused the cancellation of our planned flight at Mount Cook a few days earlier. They collected us from Queenstown for a small additional fee. The pilot and flight were excellent, gave us exactly what we wanted. The flight was about 40 minutes, enough to see much of the area, and all... More

Pleasure to deal with & very professional operators. As we were doing a scenic flight & it had become quite cloudy we were given the option of coming back later in the day or refunding the flight. We went up a little later & had an amazing flight and snow landing even with the cloud.

Definitely the best thing we did while in NZ. We flew to Milford sound and over the glaciers, stunning. We intend on going back in the winter.

Wonderful flight across the mountain ranges to the coast, and Milford Sound. On the return, we stopped at a glacier, had a stomp around on the rocks nearby and took some great pics. Pilot was friendly and very knowledgeable. We had already spend some time in the area, including Milford Sound, and it was great to see the topography from... More

I organised a surprise heli trip for my girlfriend taking in a glacier landing, Milford sound and culminating in a champagne proposal in the stunning Humbolt mountains. Even though I had to organise it mainly by email, with only a days notice, Sonya in the office gave me loads of options and put together an amazing bespoke trip for us.... More
