A great introductory Queenstown helicopter toup, this round trip takes you over the most iconic, must-see sites in the area, and includes not one but two landings. Soak in the frankly sublime scenery during this 45-minute flight that lives up to its billing as "essential" and then some.
There's a reason this tour has the word "essential" in its title! Cecil Peak, Moonlight Creek, Shotover River, Skippers Canyon… you'll experience all the crowd favourites with this spectacular round trip. Heading down the Frankton Arm, your first touch down is on Cecil Peak where you will encounter sweeping views of the lake, town, and surrounding mountains. When you're back in the helicopter, you will continue past Ben Lomond and into Moonlight Creek, heading towards the famous Skippers Canyon. An area steeped in the rich history of early gold miners, this is another site best viewed from above. You will then follow the winding Shotover River canyon back home for one last landing before swinging past Coronet Peak and landing back at base approximately 45 minutes after you set-off.

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.
