Must do AMAZING experience!

This was such an amazing experience! If you could only get to do one helicopter ride in your lifetime, Queenstown is definitely the best place to do it! The scenery is stunning, and all of the staff at Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, especially our pilot Stu! :)

Breathtaking Views & the Best Flight Ever!

We did the apline scenic flight.This was one of the best highlights of our trip to Queenstown. Our intial booking got cancelled due to weather, however the team were very professional & kind in accomodating us the next day. Andy, our pilot was awesome and very informative. To our advantage our flight was slightly longer to be able to get us a snow landing :). Scenery was absolutely stunning and spectacular - took so many clicks! Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters are the best in business if you are thinking of doing a flight- highly recommend. Thank you to Andy and the rest of the team for helping us create some memorable memories :).

Great flight

This was a brilliant experience and the pilot was friendly. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars was because they changed the time of the flight without discussing it and we paid for a snow landing (as advertised) and then they said there wasn't any snow around to land on. If there is no snow then don't advertise a snow flight! But it was a safe and wonderful flight.
