Heliworks operates a fleet of modern helicopters from Queenstown airport and provides a full range of tour and charter trips to Milford and Fiordland, heli-fishing, heli-hiking and heli-skiing. Heliworks was contracted exclusively by Peter Jackson for aerial filming and transportation of cast to film locations in Lord of the Rings. Their helicopter pilots have an intimate knowledge of the area and can transport you into 'Middle Earth'.
Fiordland's Finest, including Milford Sound
Fiordland is spectacular and this 135-minute trip shows off the best of it, from the highest peak, Mt Tutoko, to the coastal Fiords, from glaciers to waterfalls. You will be able to stand on the mountain tops, touch the ancient ice of a glacier and chase the waves on an isolated West Coast beach. You will also visit the world-famous Milford Sound, and see the sights of the Milford area, including the second highest waterfall in the Southern Hemisphere, the Sutherland Falls, and the Mackinnon Pass.
