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 had seen the glaciers in Doubtful and Milford sound, but nothing compared to being flow up close and personal in a helicopter. Our pilot was outstanding and seeing and touching the ice was a unique experience.

Once again I recently accompanied two overseas photo tour clients whilst on a scenic flight with snow landing with Heli Glenorchy and we were all very impressed. The team are friendly and efficient, making the whole experience well worth the visit. Thanks all of you...More
