About Heli Glenorchy
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 on the doorstep to the Southern Alps, Mt. Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks. 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. It is 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 visitors flying into the untouched beauty of Fiordland and Mount Aspiring National Parks is a once in a lifetime opportunity. We keep our fleet small, the experience personal, our operation safe, and we deliver that once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget.

It was absolutely amazing. I loved it. A few years prior my husband was trying to talk me into going but I didn't want to spend the money. I'm a hand brake :). This time he talked me into it. Oh my goodness, it was amazing. I wont need talking into it next time!

This helicopter trip was recommended to us we were not disappointed I have been lucky enough to have done a few helicopter flights and this was the best We took of and flew over lots of mountain ranges stunning scenery, first landing on a small glacier for photos and see the other Glaciers near by stunning!!! Heading towards Mount Earnslaw and zig zagging down the Earnslaw glacier to land in Earnslaw burn awesome flying so we could all see the glacier. Stepping into the burn was breath taking the most beautiful site I have ever seen, Lots of water falls and glacier high above This trip is a must you will not be disappointed. you can see why they have used this back drop in many movies Thank you to all staff and especially the pilot who took great care of us

We did the alpine landing. Absolutely spectacular trip and definitely recommend it. We travelled with our two children (12&7) - it was their first time touching snow and what a way to do it. The staff were all lovely.

The whole trip to the Earnslaw Burn by helicopter was amazing. The pilot was very gentle. This wasn't about being an adrenaline ride, but a scenic awe inspiring experience. Loved every minute.
