Helicopter Flight - Glacier Landing Queenstown


Latest Questions about Helicopter Flight - Glacier Landing (Queenstown)

Hi, may I ask what is the difference between the alpine snow heli-landing tour and the glacier-landing tour?

Will both tours have snow landings on top of a peak? I see more pictures of the glacier tour landing near water areas than snow capped ice.


There are a few differences between these two helicopter flights in Queenstown. The Snow Landing flight is only about 20-30 minutes in duration and takes you to the nearest snow capped peak to Queenstown, where as the Glacier Flight is 50 minutes and you fly to an actual Glacier. Both offer the opportunity to get out and walk around for a few minutes on the snow but only the Glacier flight allows you to land and walk on a glacier. There is a big difference in price and this reflects the extra flight time in the helicopter. The Glacier flight is widely regarded as the most scenic flight in the Queenstown area.
