Scenic Flights Across the Top of the South with Helicopters Nelson

There’s no better way to experience the amazing National Parks, golden coastlines and spectacular mountain scenery of our region than with a Helicopters Nelson scenic flight.  The Top of The South boasts some of the most beautiful and varied scenery in New Zealand, so whatever your time frame or preference, we have the perfect scenic flight for you. Drop in for a gourmet lunch at one of our boutique vineyards, immerse yourself in the magical scenery brought to life by Peter Jackson in Lord of The Rings, or take to the skies to see the clearest lake in the world – Rotomairewhenua (The Blue Lake), in the Nelson Lakes National Park. Adventure into pristine back-country rivers for a spot of trout fishing or even enjoy a three course lunch prepared by your personal chef on D’Urville Island.

Your scenic flight adventure starts here… the only problem is, which flight to choose?
