This is a must do! We had a fantastic time! Scott made the trip fun and informative. We did the hour flight to Mount Dechen. There was beautiful scenery. We saw several glaciers, mountain lakes, several of the tall peaks in the area, and wildlife. We were concerned about the cost, but in the end it was worth every penny. My husband and I agreed that this might have been the coolest thing we've ever done. Thank you Scott for such a wonderful time. Book a tour with Haast Heli. You won't be disappointed.

We had planned on a helicopter charter from Queenstown but saw this outfit when we decided to stay in Haast after the great drive down the west coast. We booked a private charter to Milford Sound.

The lady in reception was very pleasant and extremely helpful, Scott the pilot was outstanding and we had a wonderful time. Not to be missed is my advice.

We saw the mountains and glaciers, had a walk at Milford sound then flew the coast on the way back seeing dolphins and a seal colony.

Our Heli-flight was, without doubt, the highlight our trip to New Zealand. From the initial contact through to the flight itself the experience was personal, relaxed and highly professional.
Due to the overcast conditions that morning Scott, our pilot, flew us up through the Landsborough Valley and on to tour Mt Hooker, Mt Dechen and the mountain ranges in all their glory.
Scott was personable, accommodating and knowledgeable. The views were astounding, the wildlife astonishing and the 'not perfect weather' just added another layer to an amazing experience.
Our fortune persisted to a landing beside a pristine glacier lake where Scott cooked up a feast of sublime whitebait patties. These were wolfed down while keeping an eye on the Alpine Chamois silhouetted against the skyline. All at the top of the world!
My partner and I cannot thank you enough for a truly grand experience Haast- Heli, one that we will, no doubt, revisit in our memory often.
For those out there thinking about doing a Heli-flight in NZ, I would suggest, don't mess about, just pick this one.

Scott took me on a hunt flight and we went to a great place. He pointed out various options and possible game sights. We landed in this fantastic valley, only accessible by helicopter. The view was out of a book, waterfalls, trees and tussock grasses. It took a while but we disturbed a 10 pointer and enjoyed a successful hunt.
On the return flight Scott took me on a scenic tour of the local area.
It was a fantastic few hours and I totally enjoyed the chance of viewing country that you could never see outside of flying.
Great pilot and knowledgeable guy .
Thanks Scott and Haast Helicopters.

Jaine C, thank you for your great review. Pleased to hear you had some success and that Scott was able to give you a scenic tour of the Haast area. It certainly is a very scenic part of New Zealand, as you have said "just like out of a book" with the waterfalls, trees and tussock grasses. Thank you for flying with Haast Heli.

Thank you car0linenz for your review. The Coastline and mountains are most definitely stunning, and a bonus to spot the dolphins. Thank you for the recommendation.
