Watch as the magical scenes of the Lord of the Rings unfold before you during this helicopter flight. Fly over the Kahurangi National Park and land on Mt Olympus to admire the unusual pinnacle rock formations that were used to portray the rugged country "South of Rivendell."
Seize the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness one of the most remote and inaccessible areas on the planet during this spectacular helicopter flight. Lifting off from Nelson Airport, you will fly northwest over the Kahurangi National Park and into Golden Bay, where Mt Olympus awaits your arrival. Land on this rocky landscape and view the remarkable pinnacle rock formations that were used to portray the rugged country "South of Rivendell" in the Lord of the Rings films. Over time, the rocky outcrops have been eroded by weather to form its distinctive columnar shapes. After much admiration, hop back on the helicopter for the return flight to base.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
