Great experience
Mar 2021
My wife and I's first time in a helicopter and we had so much fun. Unfortunately we were not able to make it to Cecil peak because of weather conditions but were taken to another amazing vantage paint between Queenstown and Arrowtown which had some amazing views. The pilot did an amazing job and had complete control of the helicopter which made for a very smooth ride.

An amazing experience, certainly worth doing. Our pilot, Scotty, was great and very informative. The views were stunning, even on a cloudy day and getting to land on the ridge was a real buzz. Loved the whole journey, which went far to quickly.

My Husband and I did the 'pilots choice' option and even though I am terrified of flying am SO glad we did this. We got to do a landing and the views are like no other. The pilot did a great job as it was a bit windy and starting to rain. The way the helicopter lifted up and took off over the side of the Remarkables had me feeling like I was in a video game!

Worth every penny
We booked on the alpine snow landing at NZD350 per person. This was mine and my partners first time in a helicopter. I am both terrified of heights and claustraphobic but I still found the ride really enjoyable. We tried to land at Coronet Peak first which had incredible views. However, it was too windy to land so the pilot flew us to a calmer Vanguards Peak. It was beautiful up here with lovely views of the snowy mountain peaks. We had a total of 20 minutes in the air (10 minutes there and 10 minutes back) and then about 10 minutes on the peak taking photos. While it doesn't sound like that long, it is plenty of time and doesn't feel rushed at all. Our pilot was professional and even took photos for everyone. An awesome experience for two first time flyers. My only comment would be that when wind does hit the helicopter it is really rough (far worse than turbulence on a plane as the helicopter is a lot easier to get thrown around) which can be a little freaky but through this turbulence the pilot was really comforting and calming. He was also able to predict when a roll of wind was coming which helped to prepare us for the jolt - incredibly, his predictions were always exactly right! In total of the whole flight there was probably a total of 10 - 20 seconds of turbulence, so don't let that put you off by any means!

Thank you so much for your kind review. We are glad you enjoyed the Snow Landing. Glad to see you found the pilot comforting during the unexpected turbulence. We look forward to hearing from you again soon.
