New Zealand Scenic Flights

New Zealand from the skies... It would almost be a sin not to include at least one scenic flight in your trip around NZ. You will find some in each region in a helicopter, a light plane, a water plane or a hot air balloon. The options are numerous and the landscapes are incredibly varied from the seas, lakes and coastlines to the glaciers, volcanoes and mountains.

Because scenic flights are a well-developed activity in NZ, the tariffs are more affordable than in some destinations and the safety measures are very strict so you can be assured of flying securely. The flying possibilities do depend on the weather but our guests should feel assured that if their scenic flight happens to be cancelled we can replace it with an alternative flight in a different destination during their trip.
