Everything Travel Group Review

The Remarkables mountain is one of the most dramatic and stunning views around. From the landing point you can see for miles in a 360 degree view. Look back accross Queenstown to the houses and famous golf course - Kelvin Heights or the other way to some spectacular remote scenery, and the beautiful Lake Wakatipu. It's hard to believe you are only a short flight away from Queenstown.

I am looking for a helicopter flight to a nice scenic location to
propose to my girlfriend. What are my options and prices please?

Also, if we can't fly because of weather and if I can't reschedule the flight, will I be entitled to a full refund?

Thank you

Hi Aline, yes you certainly will be given a full refund if your Remarkables helicopter flight is cancelled due to weather and you can't reschedule.

Hi,
Two questions:
1. my family (me, wife and two kids age 4 & 1) - would we just need 2 adult tickets for this?
2. will there be a snow landing in the last week of September?
Thanks,

Comments

Children under 4 years of age travel for free on the helicopter flights in Queenstown so you would need to pay for 3 people and your 1 year old travels for free.  There is usually plenty of snow around in September but there are no guarantees. If you want to guarantee a snow landing at any time of the year then I suggest booking the Alpine Snow Landing flight which has a special at 3pm each day also.

Hi

We are looking at coming to Queenstown late January, we are 3 adults and 2 children. Children are 3yrs and 4yrs
Interested in doing your 1530 special but we aren't sure on dates, we will either be there 25Jan - 29Jan or 01feb16-05feb16.
Would the children be free or would there be a charge for them?

Approx weight 115kg 113kg 65kg 25kg 22kg

Cheers
Keryn

Comments

Yes kids 4 years and under are free of charge on the Remarkables helicopter flight in Queenstown so you would just need to pay for 3 adults. If you're not sure on dates I suggest booking for one of your first days in town so that if the weather is no good for flying you can reschedule to another day. If you book now and then decide later than you want to change the date then you can just contact us and we'll do it for you free of charge. Once you book online via our website we will email your booking confirmation straight back.

Hi, my partner has a cast on his leg and is on crutches. Is it still possible to do this?

Comments

I have just spoken with the helicopter pilots and your partner is certainly able to do a scenic flight in Queenstown with his leg in a cast. The back door of the helicopter is quite wide and the pilot will take care helping your partner in and out of the heli. What date are you thinking of booking for?

Hi ,

Does your snow landing on the remarkables
operate late october ?- we will be in Queenstown 22-29 October .

Thanks

Comments

Hi Cleo. The Remarkables helicopter flight from Queenstown operates all year however it only lands in the snow when there is snow around during the winter months. In late October it is possible there will be snow on mountains but there are no guarantees unfortunately. If you do want a snow landing for sure then you can book the Cecil Peak snow landing helicopter flight that guarantees a snow landing all year.

can this fit 7 person?

Comments

Hi Jessica. The helicopters that fly the scenic flights in Queenstown can only hold up to 6 passengers so if you have a group of 7 then we would have to spread you out between 2 helicopters. This is not a problem but it just means that you wont all be in the same helicopter.

Hi,
Is the 330pm special only online or can I book this when I arrive on Friday?
Thanks

Comments

Hi Rochelle. You wont see the 3.30pm Remarkables helicopter special advertised in Queenstown as you do need to book in in advance. There are limited spaces available each day so I recommend booking asap. If the weather is no good for flying then you can reschedule to another day, use the credit towards another activity or receive a full refund.

Hey Im really interested in booking this but just wondered why in particular 3.30pm there is a special? Is there not clear visability at that time due to clouds or something? Also the helicopter is obviously a weather dependant activity, what happens if we arent able to fly due to poor weather? - beacause we are in queenstown for a short amount of time

Thank you

Kind Regards


Bryony Nixon

Comments

Hi Bryony. The 3.30pm Remarkables special helicopter flight in Queenstown is exactly the same as the normal flight however it's cheaper at 3.30pm as this is a quiet time of the day for the helicopters and by offering a special the helicopter can get some use. Yes, the helicopter flights are weather dependent so if the weather is no good for flying and you are unable to reschedule then you are eligible for a full refund.

To Whom It May Concern,

I'm enquiring about your Helicopter flight up to The Remarkables. I am looking at possibly booking a flight for June 7th, 2014, as we're going to be in Queenstown that weekend. With your 3.30pm special, is that $135 per person? How many people are you able to accommodate? I'm hoping for either 3 or 4 people.
Also, do you know if there will be much snow that early in June?

Kind regards,

Jaimee Cutting

Comments

Hi Jaimee. Yes there is currently space for your group of 4 people on the Remarkables helicopter flight in Queenstown on the 7th June. The cost is $135 per person and the helicopter can take up to 6 passengers (depending on weights and heights etc). The weather is pretty changeable that time of the year and we normally get a snow dump early in the season so there is a good chance that there will be a fair bit of snow around but no guarantees. Town will be starting to fill up with the annual winter festival starting on the 20th June so I would recommend booking in advance. If you book via our website you are welcome to change your dates without any additional cost as long as you do it at least 48 hours prior to your flight departing.

How much to hire a private helicopter to fly to the Remarkables on the 20th March 2014 for 6 people.
Thank you
Kay

Comments

Hi Kay. The current cost to charter a helicopter to do a private Remarkables flight in Queenstown for up to 6 passengers is $760. This includes return hotel transfers and a mountain landing during which you can get out of the helicopter and take photos and check out the scenery. You can fly in the morning or afternoon.

I have a group of business people staying in Queenstown and they would like to do the Helicopter flight - 6 people on Wednesday 18th September - is this available. Also what would total cost be? Prefer morning if possible

Comments

Hi Kay. Yes it is possible to take your group of 6 people in the one helicopter on the Remarkables scenic helicopter flight in Queenstown so long as the combined weight for all 6 passengers does not exceed 480kg. There is currently space on the morning of the 18th September and return hotel transfers are also included in the price.

hi there, I am thinking of arranging this as a gift for my partners 40th. Can we take a beer up to enjoy once landed on the remarkables?
Thanks

Comments

Hi there Nic. Yes, if you book a scenic helicopter flight in Queenstown then you are more than welcome to bring a couple of bottles of beer or a bottle of champagne with you in a small bag. You won't be able to consume these in the helicopter but once you land on top of the Remarkbales mountain and disembark the helicopter you will have some time to take in the views and celebrate with a drink if you choose.

I am enquiring about a helicopter flight from Queenstown to any nearby glacier and be dropped off for around 4 hours (my partner and I) with a picnic basket and drinks (supplied by ourselves or you) and picked back up by helicopter and returned to Queenstown. Its my partners 40th birthday and I want to do something private and special. Don't mind if we share the helicopter but just not the private time on glacier. Any suggestions and price for charter? Looking at booking on 18th October 2013.

Comments

Hi Angie,

There is a glacier landing heli experience however this only allows 10 minutes on the glacier and not enough time for you to have a picnic. If you wanted to do this you would need to charter the helicopter and then you could have 30-45 minutes on the glacier as the pilot will then shut down the machine between landing and take off. The cost for this is $1700 and you would have the helicopter (6 seats) to yourself. If this is of interest let us know and we can book for you.

Thanks,

Nigel

Hi, we will be in Queenstown from the 17th August for two weeks, Im just wondering how much is the 3.30 special? Will this be available in a couple of weeks? Thanks for your time

Comments

Hi Nicole. The 3.30pm Remarkables helicopter special is $135 per person and is available every day of the week all year. It is $90 cheaper than the standard price and is exactly the same flight and includes a landing on top of the Remarkables mountain range. It does often get booked up as it is very popular so I recommend booking sooner rather than later.

Hi there,
I am organising a trip for myself and 4 friends in Queenstown at the end of August, and would love to do a scenic flight! I noticed you offer a private charter service for NZ$568.00
Is this the same service as the Remarkables flight?
Thank you

Comments

Hi Russell. Yes the Remarkables helicopter charter flight is the exact same flight as the 20 minute Remarkables flight with a mountain landing except that you get the helicopter and pilot to yourselves. The helicopter can take up to 6 passengers (weight restrictions apply).

Hi, could you tell me how many people can go on the flights please? Thanks.

Comments

Hi Katherine. Up to 6 passengers average size people can fit in each helicopter. The maximum laoding weight per helicopter is 480kgs (1000lbs) plus the pilot. If there are more than 6 passengers or the weight of the total group is too heavy then you can book a second helicopter.

What is the weight limit on the private helicopter charter?

Comments

Hi Briana. If you are booking a private helicopter flight in Queenstown then up to 6 passengers at an average of 80kgs each can go in the helicopter. So the max weight limit for everyone (except the pilot) is 480kgs.

MY daughter and her family are visiting Queenstown in May 2013. I would like to give them a voucher for a helicopter flight for their family of 2 adults and children aged 8,6 and 2. Would they be able to upgrade to a different flight if they so wished? Am I able to purchase a voucher without stipulating a day and time of flight?

Comments

Hi Pam. Yes absolutely. When you purchase a gift voucher for this Remarkbales scenic helicopter flight or any other activity it is open dated. The recipient can use the value of the gift voucher towards the cost of any activities listed on our websites, they don't have to do a helicopter flight. To book an open dated gift voucher for a specific activity on our website simply click on the Book Now button. Then check the box at the top that says "I want this to be an open dated gift voucher', follow the prompts and proceed to the Check Out page. We will then instantly email you the gift voucher.

Dear Sir

What is the difference between the 3.30 pm flight, heli flight and the private charter private flight for six?
If I book private charter heli flight for six, can I set at any time?
Annie

Comments

Hi Annie. The 3.30pm Special is exactly the same helicopter flight in Queenstown except that it operates at 3.30pm at a cheaper price. The Private Charter is the same flight also, it is just a cheaper option if you have a small group or if you wish to do a private flight with no other customers on board. The helicopters take u to 6 passengers so if there are 4 or more of you then it is cheaper to book a Private Charter flight than paying individually for single seats. If you book the Private Charter then you can request a preferred departure time.

hello we have a group of 17 people one being a three year old? do you do large group bookings?
we are going for a 50th birthday and would all like to be on top of the remarkables at the same time? Is this possible? the date would be the 2/10/2012 a morning booking?

Comments

Hi Lee,

Yes we can arrange large group bookings. The helicopter company you are looking at are specialists in moving large volumes of people so 17 in the morning will be no problem as they have many helicopters. The key to getting this organised will be booking in advance.

If you need any further assistance or recommendations please don't hesitate to contact us.

Comments

Hi Rebecca. Yes minimum numbers do apply for the helicopter to run for the Remarkalbes flight. It only requires 2 to confirm the trip though so it is still worth booking as more often than not there will be at least 2 people booked. If not you are entitled to a full refund or the option to reschedule for another day.

Will it land on the ground during the helicopter flight And will the price include a shuttle bus back to queenstown ?

Hi Jeff. Yes the Remarkables Helicopter flight in Queenstown does include a landing on the Remarkables mountain range where you can get out of the heli and take pictures. During winter this is usually a snow landing! You will be dropped back into town or your hotel after your flight.

Does the private charter include the same tour as buying for one person? Does it include the Remarkables landing. We are coming to Queenstown late July and we have six people so am really interested in this package.
Thanks
Karen

Comments

Hi Karen, yes the private charter does do the same tour it just means you are paying for the whole helicopter rather than just one seat. If there are 6 of you wanting to do this trip then it is obviously far better to book the charter flight rather than booking your seats individually.

fauzi

Comments

Hi Fauzi, this is not a problem at all. You can do The Remarkables Helicopter Flight as a private charter. The rate for a private charter is $557 per helicopter and each helicopter can take up to 6 passengers so you would need two helicopters to fit your 11 family members. Without the private charter you are looking at $215 per adult or $150 per child (4-14years).
