Wanaka: Scenic Flight with Glacier Landing

2. Wanaka: Scenic Flight with Glacier Landing

To begin your helicopter adventure, take the scenic drive out of Wanaka to the Matukituki Valley. Check-in at the hangar located on Cattle Flat Station, a fully operational working high-country farm. Before you set off into the sky, you’ll receive a safety briefing prior from your expert pilot. All helicopters are fitted with two-way headsets to ensure you can interact with your pilot, as well as enjoy their entertaining commentary during this 35-minute experience. Soaring into the sky, fly over the tussock-covered hills of the farm and into the alps over remote mountain peaks, covered with deep, glacial-carved valleys. Gaze at the otherworldly landscape, with its deep blue chasms and stunning glacial caps. Landing high on a glacier overlooking the Alps, you’ll enjoy a photo stop with guaranteed snow year round prior to returning to the hangar. Marvel at the panoramic views over the braided Matukituki River, flowing towards Lake Wanaka, before you gracefully float back down to the landing strip.

Collect at a central point. We were bad with 2! With a van brought to Lake Hawea. Got a bike there (with bottle cage) and map how to cycle. After 15 km (mainly flat or down) you will arrive in Albert Town. You can eat and / or drink it there. After another 15 km of Wanaka river you will arrive in Wanaka. Nice trip, super quiet and beautiful photo moments!

Top organized, ordered online the evening before, confirmation email and meeting point well communicated, easy guide, great route along the crystal blue river, the flat tire was replaced after calling 10 minutes later! thanks, that immediately brought our good mood back

Were told the upper Clutha River track from Albert Town to Wanaka was closed due to washouts. Detour was through suburbs. We went on the Clutha track anyway. First 50 meters was very rocky, rest was absolutely fine. So glad we did that part as it was the best!

top route, we had a flat tire, 10 minutes after our call we had an exchange bike, THANKS

Beautiful scenery and easy riding beside the rivers from Lake Hawea to Lake Wanaka.
