Private Helicopter Charters

Private Helicopter Charters

Discover the beauty of the Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park with a private helicopter charter. The helicopter is reserved exclusively for you and your party. Enjoy the individual commentary provided by your pilot, while being expertly flown amongst glaciers, mountain peaks and blue ice.

We can customise all our scenic flight options to add on additional time, landings and routes. Or choose to create an entirely bespoke helicopter package instead. This allows you to take advantage of both the scenery and our knowledge. If you are travelling in a group and/or do not want to share the helicopter with other paying clients a private charter is the best option.

Tailored Scenic Itineraries

For example we can fly you to a remote mountain where you can enjoy a glass of bubbles and a gourmet picnic. Then you could be whisked away to circle round the summit of Aoraki/Mt Cook. Next experience landing on a glacier in a winter paradise. Or fly the whole length of the Tasman Glacier from terminal lake to summit. Whatever your dream, Heliworks can create a tailored helicopter itinerary for you. We are also renowned for providing a level of individual service that means your experience will be nothing short of perfection.

Please get in touch with our Mt Cook base team to discuss your personal requirements. Our helicopters can carry up to 6 people (dependent on weight restrictions).
