Max out your senses

The stunning Mt Cook region is one of New Zealand's top attractions and our Tekapo base specialises in scenic flights over the region's spectacular alpine scenery.

One of the most breathtaking ways to make the most of your visit here is by taking a flight in one of our four-seater and six-seater turbine helicopters.

Our pilots provide you with an informative commentary about the area while you take in the spectacular views. You can also enjoy a landing which allows you to experience the beauty of the area up close. Choose your Scenic Flight departing Lake Tekapo below. Walk-ins welcome.

Scenic flights departing Lake Takapo

The Lake Takapo flight office

Our Lake Tekapo flight office is on the main street of the Lake Tekapo township right in the heart of the town. This is your first stop to check in for a flight or make a booking.

Our helipad is 5.2 km from Lake Tekapo on the left-hand side heading towards Twizel on State Highway 8. We provide a shuttle service from the booking office to the heliport.

Our base in the Lake Tekapo township is very close to Aoraki/Mt Cook – one of New Zealand’s most impressive attractions and New Zealand’s highest mountain. We offer flight packages from 20 minutes to one hour, or private exclusive charters across the magnificent Mackenzie Country, featuring the picturesque turquoise waters of Lake Pukaki and Lake Tekapo extending out below New Zealand’s highest peaks.

Fly with us and you can see all the highlights of our region without all the extra driving to get to the Mt Cook Village.
