Rydges Lakeland Resort Queenstown
Scenic Helicopter Flights
Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters have been operating in the Queenstown area since the 1980’s, pioneering glacier landings and since 2004 has been owned by local pilot, Pat West.
We pride ourselves on professional service and the presentation of our aircraft so that passengers enjoy the most comfortable experience possible.
We operate a fleet of modern 6-seater turbine helicopters serviced and maintained to ensure maximum passenger safety and comfort. All our maintenance procedures comply with New Zealand Civil Aviation safety standards.
We have highly experienced pilots with extensive knowledge of the local mountain environment and high flying hours.
We are Department of Conservation approved and hold concessions to land in Fiordland and Mt Aspiring National Parks. This means that via your fare you are contributing to conservation in New Zealand because the concession fees we pay to DOC go back into supporting conservation work. Glacier Southern Lakes Helicopters are also members of the New Zealand Tourism Industry Association.
Our helpful concierge is more than happy to assist you with your activity bookings.
