Time to get in the heli. Your pilot and ground crew will ensure that you are comfortable, buckled in, and have your headset on and ready to go.

The heli takes off, and you’re airborne. Take in the stunning sights of Fiordland as your pilot weaves towards Te Anau, sharing the stories and history of the region as you fly.

Remote landing

Your pilot chooses a secluded spot amongst the peaks to land. They’ll let you out into a remote location, where you’ll be immersed in nature’s incredible views. Be sure to snap some photos.
