Wanaka Day

Helicopters and Jetboats

Helicopters and Jetboats

This is quite a special one, starting from Silver Pine Lodge, just north of Wanaka.  Board your helicopter with a specialist nature pilot flying low over wild animals for that wonderful photo-opportunity.  After a spectacular flight across the Southern Alps (not far from Mount Cook) and Haast Pass, land at a remote West Coast river, take a jetboat for 30 minutes up to the estuary where your helicopter will be supporting two divers who are gathering a crayfish lunch.  Have lunch around a bonfire on the beach before heading back doing the same in reverse.
