Those who have experienced New Zealand will at once agree that it features some of the most extraordinary scenery to be found anywhere. The rugged landscapes from the glaciers of the Southern Alps, to magnificent Lake Taupo with its massive volcanic crater filled with crystalline water, to the serene Bay of Islands, offer endless opportunities for nature lovers and outdoor enthusiasts.

And helicopters are the ideal match to explore this wonderland. Indeed, these are the work horses in transportation for the islands. In agricultural work, emergency rescue, heavy lifting and scenic flights, helicopters are the answer. They also come in handy to get you to the golf course for your tee time or to take you out on a heli-skiing adventure.

Sightseeing by helicopter, also call flightseeing, is immensely popular as it allows you to access even the most remote reaches. Travel by helicopter not only offers the ultimate views of New Zealand’s spectacular geography, it is seriously fun.

Helicopter flights are available in many locations throughout the country, including at the beautiful Huka Lodge near Taupo. See for yourself – go flightseeing on our 16-day New Zealand journey.
