Myself and a friend are coming to Queenstown and wanting to land in snow or a glacier. My friend has never seen snow... When you land on the mountain is it surrounded by snow all around you and under your feet or is it just bits of snow as you Look around?? Also, is it 50 min flight each way or in total? And how long do you get to spend on the snow when you land ?.

Hello, we are going to Queenstown in August. May I ask how long is the helicopter flight - glacier landing is? Do we have time to have a walk on the glacier? Will we see the green-blue ice there? Thank you.


The helicopter flight from Queenstown and glacier landing is 50 minutes in duration which allows for about a 5-10 minute landing, so you are flying for about 40 minutes in the helicopter. You probably wont see the green/blue ice there as you'll need to go to the west coast glaciers (fox or franz josef) to see that. The southern glacier flight from Queenstown however is still very spectacular with stunning views of the lake, mountains and glacier

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.


There are a few differences between these two helicopter flights in Queenstown. The Snow Landing flight is only about 20-30 minutes in duration and takes you to the nearest snow capped peak to Queenstown, where as the Glacier Flight is 50 minutes and you fly to an actual Glacier. Both offer the opportunity to get out and walk around for a few minutes on the snow but only the Glacier flight allows you to land and walk on a glacier. There is a big difference in price and this reflects the extra flight time in the helicopter. The Glacier flight is widely regarded as the most scenic flight in the Queenstown area.

Weight limits


Hi Serena. The maximum combined weight for all the scenic helicopter flights in Queenstown is 470kg total. The helicopter can take up to 6 passengers as long as their combined weight is under 470kg. So essentially there is no maximum weight restriction for individual passengers as long as the total combined weight is under 470kg.

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!


Hi Liana, the glacier landing is carried out all year round including summer so you will definitely be landing on a glacier in August. Yes, if you book a morning flight you will be fine for your 4pm flight to Christchurch.

Hi, I am coming to Queenstown for a family function over a weekend from Oz and basically have Friday 22nd June as a free day. If I book my 11yr and I a trip and it doesn't go ahead for bad weather or other reasons do we get a refund.

Thanks Wes


Hi Wes, yes if your Glacier Landing Helicopter Flight is cancelled for whatever reason you certainly do receive a full refund or the chance to reschedule if you have the time available

Hi there,

May I know what is the afternoon timing for this?

Thank you.


Hi Clarissa. The Southern Glacier helicopter flight in Queenstown operates on demand every day of the year so we can schedule a flight to suit your needs. A common departure time would be 9am or 3pm however this is flexible. What time and date were you thinking of booking?

Hi there. Do you arrange for pick ups from Arrowtown - where I am likely to be staying?

If it turns out that I'm the only person booked for a particular flight (time and day) do you still fly with one passenger?
I will have limited time in the Q/town area.

How far in advance does it pay to book?


Hi Jacqui. Unfortunately none of the activity operators pick up from Arrowtown as its 20 minutes drive from Queenstown. If you are able to get to Queenstown then you can get picked up from there or you can make your own way to the helicopter base located at Queenstown airport. All Queenstown helicopter flights do require minimum numbers to operate and if you are the only passenger then the flight will not go ahead. If this is the case then you will be given the option of going on a different flight that is confirmed, rescheduling to a different day or receiving a full refund. The helicopter flights in Queenstown are very popular in summer and winter and are often booked out, especially in winter when the helicopters are predominantly used for heliskiing. I'd suggest booking as soon as you know which day and time you want to travel. This will also help to ensure your flight goes ahead as it will allow other people to book on and confirm the flight.

We are coming to NZ in October - do you guarantee landing on a glacier?


Hi Mary. The glacier helicopter flight operates all year in Queenstown. If the weather is poor and there is low cloud or rain then the flight will not go ahead. If this is the case then you can reschedule for another day or receive a full refund. If the flight does go ahead then you will definitely land on a glacier.

How long do you get to spend on the Glacier. and is there any hiking up on.


Hi Jean, you will spend about 10-15 minutes on the glacier during the Glacier Landing Helicopter Flight. The time is generally determined by the weather and the people on the flight as to how long they want to spend there. You can walk around on the glacier but there is no need to do any hiking. Alternatively, if you wanted to do a heli hike it is offerend at the Franz Josef glacier on the West Coast. Check out the following link for more information Franz Josef Heli Hike
