Description

Allow 1 hour

Our Glacier Explorer excursion departs from Queenstown to take you high above the Wakatipu basin to show off all the surrounding beauty. You will then head on a scenic journey towards an ancient glacier which constantly moves under its own weight.

On arrival, the helicopter will shut down on the landing to allow you to enjoy the peace and quiet. Hear the creaking of the glacier, feel the white ice crunch beneath your feet, peer into pure blue crevasses and absorb the stunning scenery of this magical place.  Learn of the glacial recession and monitoring of this permanently frozen world.

Your helicopter will then lift off to bring you back on a scenic flight covering more of the Queenstown area including the main surrounding mountain ranges, Queenstown township and the long thin Z -shaped glacial formed lake known as Lake Wakatipu.

Deep in the Southern Alps discover the blue ice, learn of the glacial recession, and the monitoring of this permanently frozen world.

Fly from our hanger at Queenstown Airport to one of our local glaciers, enjoy views over Lake Wakatipu, Queenstown and the surrounding areas. Your helicopter will shut down after landing on a glacier, so you can enjoy the beautiful sounds of nature.

Either self-drive to our departure lounge at the Queenstown airport where we have ample complimentary parking and aim to be here 15 minutes prior to lift off. Alternatively, we can arrange a pick up from your Queenstown accommodation 30 minutes prior to lift off.
