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 a flight over to Milford Sound from Glenorchy with Heliglenorchy. The pilot was very informative and made sure we saw some fantastic scenery. We landed on the Glacier which is an experience never to be forgotten. Highly recommended go for it.
