What you can expect

They call this scenic helicopter flight the 'Pilot's Choice' and we love this because the locals know best. Come and join some of the most experienced pilots in Queenstown on a mystery adventure. The destination may be unknown but you can be rest assured that anywhere in the air in Queenstown is simply breathtaking with spectacular scenery wherever you look. This 25 minute Queenstown helicopter flight also includes an alpine landing that will see you perched on rugged mountain terrain and in the winter, standing in snow. Don't forget your camera as these views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu are not be missed. If you're ready to let go of the reins and let your pilot call the shots on a spontaneous and unforgettable flying experience, we recommend you book this must do Queenstown helicopter flight here with Experience Oz.
