What you can expect

New Zealand’s pristine Fiordland National Park is all yours to explore from every angle on this exciting helicopter and jet boat combo. Hold on for a fun and informative tour travelling down Upper Waiau River to Lake Manapouri- one of New Zealand's most beautiful lakes. Experience 360 degree views as you zip across the crystal clear waters surrounded by lush forest-covered mountain ranges.

The pristine wilderness is one of a few untouched locations in the world and you'll get to see it up close when you enjoy a guided forest walk before jumping back in for more jet boating thrills. Returning back to the boat ramp, a helicopter will land in true VIP style ready to take you up in the air to experience the grandeur of the Fiordlands from the sky. The helijet combo is an exciting way to experience the incredible natural beauty of New Zealand and is likely to sell out quickly. Get your tickets online here for an unforgettable Fiordland experience.
