Overview
Fly over the high peaks of the Remarkables Mountain Range on a sightseeing helicopter tour that includes an alpine landing. Seeing The Remarkables by helicopter gives you access to the mountains' most remote snowfields, rugged terrain, and backcountry glaciers, hovering above Lake Wakatipu for spectacular views.
Highlights
  • Take in a dramatic mountain landscape from above
  • Land high in the mountains to see The Remarkables up close
  • Enjoy 20 minutes of flight time in a maneuverable copter
  • Convenient pickup and drop-off at Queenstown hotels
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your Queenstown hotel for transfer to the helipad, where you’ll board a helicopter that seats six passengers in an open plan cabin that’s ideal for views. Lift off above Lake Wakatipu as the pilot points out landmarks on the ground, and look for the peaks of the Southern Alps on the far horizon. Watch the mountains approach as you fly over the Remarkables Mountain Range, then return to earth for a high mountain landing. You’ll have time to take a few memorable photos before climbing back in the helicopter for the beautiful return flight to Queenstown.

Nothing compares to the sensory extravaganza I experienced standing on top of the Double Cone in The Remarkables and absorbing the majestic and mind-blowing view that can only be accessed via helicopter. That was next level!! Thanks to The Helicopter Line, New Zealand my 13 year
