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.

What an utterly magical trip. Perfect flying conditions and the pilot made sure we were super comfortable by keeping out of windy spots. To then land on fresh, powdery snow (that isn't 'wet' in the normal sense) was more than the icing on the cake...More

One of the highlights of our NZ trip. We went for a 2 hour spin, landing on glaciers and near Milford Sound. Heli Glenorchy uses choppers with clear view all around and very experienced pilots. Must do in this area!
