A Great Introductory Queenstown Helicopter Tour:
- Amazing Bird’s Eye view of Queenstown
- Views of the historic Skippers Canyon
- Views of The Remarkables Mountain Range
The perfect way to see the highlights of this spectacular area and its’ most iconic sites.
Lift off across Lake Wakatipu to Cecil Peak and enjoy a helicopter landing with spectacular views of Queenstown and Lake Wakatipu. Your helicopter will shut down here so you can enjoy this spectacular vista in pure peace.
Continue your helicopter flight past Queenstown itself and over Ben Lomond into Moonlight Creek and the famous Skippers Canyon. This area is steeped in the rich history of gold mining and is best viewed from the air.
See the renowned Shotover River winding beneath you through the steep canyon walls as your pilot points out some of the key sites and settlements remaining from the gold rush era.
Returning to our Queenstown heli base we will fly past Coronet Peak, with views of the skifield and the Wakatipu basin.

"My first helicopter trip. Dave Butson was a superb pilot, skilled and gave us the ride of a lifetime. The new helicopter with huge windows all around was amazing. I was scared witless and it turned out to be one of the best experiences of my life. Thanks Dave and Heliworks!"
