Southern New Zealand


Active member
Does anyone have experience with hiring a helicopter to shoot the incredibly beautiful areas south of Christchurch? The charters seem extremely expensive. Thanks for sharing any experiences you have had in southern NZ.


If you're still here, I'm in Queenstown. A friend went up the glaciers, on a sunny day on West Coast, Fox or Franz Joseph Glacier, and much more affordable with a full helicopter of people.

Found a website of discounted flights.

At the moment, a fly-cruise-fly trip Queenstown to Milford Sound & back is NZ$400, save $100 on some trips.
Occasionally I think about having a camera taped or strapped to a wing strut or something & get a photo every few seconds or remote & fly to a few places...
