Take your adrenaline to wild new heights!

The stunning Haast World Heritage Area is one of New Zealand's top attractions and provides a once in a lifetime opportunity to experience stunning and incredible views of New Zealand’s last frontier.

We specialise in scenic flights over this region’s spectacular and varied scenery, including alpine areas, waterfalls, hidden lakes and the stunning West Coast of the South Island.  Haast has a temperate climate so hunting is available all year round. We specialise in hunting and fishing trips and we customise every trip to meet your needs and offer guided trips.

Choose your Scenic Flight departing Haast below. Walk-ins welcome.

The South Westland and Fiordland regions are within reach for us, and Red Deer, Chamois and Tahr are accessible in these areas. The Haast area has an abundance of chamois which makes for successful and enjoyable hunting, or a good opportunity for amateur hunting trips.

We offer premium flight packages that include a 60-minute tour to Mount Dechen or a premium two-hour Milford Sound excursion. HeliServicesNZ Haast also offers four-hour private fishing tours into remote wilderness areas only accessible by helicopter.

We work with rafting and kayaking companies who will organise your rafting adventure down our local rivers, such as the Landsborough River, including overnight camping.

From October-April our professional fishing guide can provide every opportunity for the fishing connoisseur to experience the Haast World Heritage area while casting for the elusive freshwater Brown Trout at one of our exclusive, secluded river sites.

We provide one of the most breathtaking ways to make the most of your visit here. Our pilots provide you with an informative commentary on the area, and a landing that allows you to experience the beauty of the area up close. Our fleet of three-seater and four-seater helicopters ensure every passenger has a stunning view of this ever-changing landscape.

Our Haast office is also available for charters, filming, lifting, heli-picnics, weddings, aerial photography, remote tramping and search and rescue. Contact us to enquire.
