Flying like Gwaihir around the Southern Alps on your own Middle-earth adventure is a very special experience, & one that comes highly recommended as a climax to any tour of Middle-earth New Zealand.

At Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters, pilot Alfie Speight provided most of the aerial filming for both The Lord of the Rings & The Hobbit trilogies. Experts in our field, we now know this part of Middle-earth intimately, & our experienced pilots can transport you to the many film locations around Queenstown & the Southern Alps.

We offer two flight options which combine the best of Queenstown & Middle-earth. To venture further afield & experience even more of the environment that forms the backdrop to Peter Jacksons movies & brings Tolkiens visions into reality, ask us about designing your own Middle-earth private charter.

By flying with us you will also receive precious behind-the-scenes insights from our expert pilots who were members of Peter Jacksons production crew.
