Helicopter Flight - Glacier Landing Queenstown
Helicopter Flight - Glacier Landing
The stunning alpine landscapes of Queenstown framed by the jagged magnificence of the Remarkables Mountain Range and buttressed by the turquoise waters of Lake Wakatipu are a sight to behold. Helicopter Line operates flights departing from the Queenstown Airport, situated only 8 kilometres from the city centre.
Embark on a flight that will offer you breathtaking views of the dramatic Southern Alps and the edge of the Fiordland National Park. Explore from above the northern shores of Lake Wakatipu before landing on the snowy terrain of the Jura Glacier. Step out of the helicopter and into the snow, marvelling at the soaring mountain peaks and bush swathed valleys of Mt Aspiring and the Rees and Dart River valleys.

Latest Questions about Helicopter Flight - Glacier Landing (Queenstown)
Hi, may I ask what is the difference between the alpine snow heli-landing tour and the glacier-landing tour?
Will both tours have snow landings on top of a peak? I see more pictures of the glacier tour landing near water areas than snow capped ice.
Good day, I would like to book this trip but would like to get an idea of the likelihood of a Glacier landing in Aug (specfically Aug 11 Saturday). Also to confirm that we will be back in time for our 4pm flight to Christchurch on the day? Looking forward to your response!
