Need to Know
Our hikes cater to all abilities, however a medium level of fitness is recommended.
If you prefer hiking uphill rather than downhill, please let us know as we can rearrange a trip to suit your preferences.
Heli Hike Season
The Heli Hike season is from 1 October to 15 May, weather dependent!
At HeliHikeNZ we have a huge focus on safety from the helicopter to the hike itself.
We’ll brief you on everything you need to know about heli safety before take-off, then just follow your guides lead as they guide you down the hill.
Our guides are all trained in Pre Hospital Medical Care and we are on Worksafe New Zealand’s Register of Adventure Activity Operators and Qualmark rated.
What to Bring
Water and snacks
Hiking poles if used
Feel free to self-drive or take advantage of our complimentary shuttle pick up and drop off from the ilabb shop / Drop Cafe in downtown Queenstown.
To optimise helicopter space, our trips need a minimum of 3 people to go ahead. But if your group is smaller, or you want exclusive helicopter access, please give us a call to discuss.
