Such a good experience ! We went with a group of six and were provided with ear muffs for noise reduction & the beautiful snowy landing was topped off with yummy hot chocolates. The 40 mins from queenstown for departure was well worth it !!...More

The best way to see Central Otago, New Zealand is by helicopter. Richard and Yolanda know all the best spots and have a wealth of knowledge... they do scenic flips, biking and any special occasions. I can highly recommend their service and expertise. Awesome!

If you are hiring a car, it is very easy to find helliview. It will however take you about 1 hour to drive to Cromwell. Its a stunning drive.
