Heli Glenorchy

Heli Glenorchy is a locally owned and operated helicopter company, offering scenic and commercial flights from Glenorchy, the gateway to Paradise and Middle Earth.

Glenorchy Airfield is located at the Head of Lake Wakatipu. The spectacular 45 minute drive from downtown Queenstown to Glenorchy is rated as one of New Zealand's top ten scenic drives, and a must-do for visitors to the South Island.

Glenorchy is doorstep to the Southern Alps, Mt. Aspiring and Fiordland National Parks. It is also the shooting location for numerous films, including the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit movies.

We recognise that for many of our visitors, exploring New Zealand and flying into the untouched beauty of Fiordland and Mount Aspiring National Parks is a once in a lifetime opportunity. So we keep our fleet small, we keep the experience personal, our operation safe, and we deliver that once in a lifetime experience that you will never forget.
