Fiordland Heli and Crayfish Experience
Travel from Queenstown by helicopter over the Wakatipu Basin towards Luna Ridge to take in views of Lake Wakatipu and up towards Glenorchy, continuing to Milford Sound. Experience and take in the superb Rees and Dart river Valleys as you fly past Mount Earnslaw to make your way onto Aspiring National park to view the glaciers of the Forbes Mountain range.
Enjoy the unique beauty of this area as you stand on a rarely seen remote glacier. Travel onto a remote West Coast beach to gather crayfish, before continuing and flying the length of Milford Sound and Sutherland Falls and then landing at Fiordland Lodge
Enjoy lunch at the beautiful lodge before setting off and flying over the stunning Southland Farmland before joining the Humbolts mountain range and the Mavora lakes. Before landing back into Queenstown you will land at 5000 ft above the lake at Cecil Peak Ledge!
Viva's Best Bits...
"Crayfish fresh for lunch? Fly by helicopter to a remote West Coast beach to collect your crayfish fresh from the ocean, then fly onto Fiordland lodge for lunch - you couldn't get lunch fresher than this!" Ersan, Team Viva
Land by helicopter on a glacier in Mt Aspiring National Park, a spot rarely experienced by many.
Landing 5000 ft (1524 metres) above the lake at Cecil Peak Ledge will leave you speechless!
