Queenstown scenic flights

The magnificent scenery and views around Queenstown can only truly be experienced from the air via a scenic helicopter flight.

Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters have been delivering such flights in the Southern Lakes since the 1980’s and offer a number of options to see the Wakatipu.

Flights start from 20 minute excursions to the mighty Remarkables for the best views and photo opportunities in town.

The Skippers Express flight shows off all of Queenstown with a flight over Coronet Peak skifield and a landing in Skippers Canyon.

It then completes the circuit by returning over Queenstown and along Frankton Arm.

To feel snow under your feet, even in the middle of summer, try the Alpine Scenic flight which has a guaranteed snow landing all year round. Or for the ultimate in snow experiences try a 50 minute flight to a glacier.

Enjoy an exhilarating flight into Mt Aspiring National Park past spectacular mountains and valleys, view blue-green ice falls clinging to the mountain-sides and deep ice crevasse’s from the air before landing on the glacier itself.
