Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters


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

Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters operated by Helicopters Queenstown Ltd offer a selection of scenic Queenstown helicopter flights which can fly you over the high points of Lake Wakatipu, The Remarkables, Coronet Peak, Kawarau Gorge, Shotover River, & Skippers Canyon. Experience the thrill of landing on snow and glaciers deep within the alpine ranges and there is plenty of Middle Earth to see for Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit fans also.



By helicopter is truly the best and only way to experience this amazing World Heritage Area.

Milford Sound helicopter tours offer a trip of a lifetime with wilderness forests, pristine lakes and waterfalls and jagged mountain peaks to be experienced.

All of the Milford Sound flights include a glacier landing on stunning Mt Tutoko glacier in the heart of Fiordland National Park. Start with the Milford Sound 201 or choose to add a 2-hour boat cruise (Milford & Cruise Flight 202) or extended flying time (Milford Extended Flight 203) to really experience everything that Milford Sound has to offer.



Flying like Gwaihir around the Southern Alps on your own Middle-earth adventure is a very special experience, one that comes highly recommended and is sure to be the best part of your Middle-earth New Zealand tour.

At Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters Queenstown, pilot Alfie Speight was the principal film pilot for both The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit trilogies. You may even fly with Alfie, or one of the pilots who can share stories with you from life on the film sets!

Experts in the field, they now know this part of Middle-earth intimately, and their experienced pilots can transport you to the many different film locations around Queenstown and the Southern Alps.
