Remarkables Mountain Range Helicopter Flight from Queenstown

Select Date and Travelers
From
$177.15
Date
2 travelers
Overview
The Remarkables Mountain Range dominates the eastern skyline of Queenstown. You will appreciate first hand how these peaks have earned their name when you land 1538 meters (5046 feet) above Queenstown, where you can stand in the snow during winter and admire the stunning views across Lake Wakatipu to the Southern Alps.
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.

One word - breathtaking. The pilot, Hamish (I think) was informative and down to earth (pardon the pun). He is a great credit to your company. The views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu were stunning. Thank you for the experience. Trent & Casey
