Greenstone Helicopters operates from Haast and Neils Beach, on the South Island’s West Coast. We Operate scenic flights in this untouched World Heritage area range from shorter local tours, with an emphasis on greenstone history, to longer trips to Mount Aspiring and its glaciers, and to iconic Milford Sound. We also specialize in personalised, guided fly fishing charters to many remote rivers and streams and provide hunting trip support with drop offs and pick ups in the West Coast bush wilderness.

Pete took my family of five on the most breathtaking helicopter tour of the west coast of the South Island of NZ. The chartered trip took us from haast, up past several glaciers, mount aspiring, Milford sound, Madagascar beach, and countless other amazing remote places. We landed on glaciers, remote mountain lakes, river valleys, exotic beaches, and at Milford sound.... More

We arrived quite late for our helicopter flight on a Saturday afternoon, but Pete our pilot and the wonderful staff at Greenstone Helicopters waited patiently and made us feel completely at ease. In no time at all, we were up in the helicopter, surrounded by 360 degree views as though we were in a bubble. We scarcely seemed to be... More

Pete made this adventure an unbelievable experience by showing us all his favourite spots in the uninhabited wilderness of Southern New Zealand. Breathtaking views from his helicopter that no aircraft could possibly have shown. A great guy who has has given us an unforgettable memory. Not to be missed when visiting Haast.

OMG!!!! Awesome weather for the most picturesque ride of our lives. Pete was an excellent host and safe pilot. Don't skip this adventure if you're in this beautiful remote area. Three stops: coast , Milford sound and a glacier.

Well worth the money that we paid. Our pilot took us all around the non-designated tour spots, his very own "backyard", he was really at ease and happy to chat to us. Flying was second nature to him as he hovered around landmarks, patiently waiting for us to take photos. We got out of the copter, twice, the first time... More

One of the nicest persons in New Zealand. Nice helicopter and this crazy pilot will take you safely anywhere you want. Reasonable prices and amazing skills to land almost anywhere. Highly recommended.

In just a few words, flying with these guys is going to be one of the best experiences of your life. Not just because you can fly to some obscenely beautiful nz location for an awesome hunting or fishing or tramping trip, but the owner/pilot Pete goes out of his way to help you on every turn.
