The Ultimate Queenstown Helicopter Experience

Stroll on an uninhabited beach, soar amongst mountains on a scenic flight, dine at a remote alpine lake suspended above Fiordland – it’s all possible with Over The Top. We offer more than just a helicopter ride, showcasing the very best of New Zealand scenery, culture, and community to all who seek it.

With the latest helicopters available, our interpretive excursions incorporate Queenstown, Milford Sound and the Fiords of Southern New Zealand, taking you over alpine glaciers and remote lakes with options to include gourmet picnics, hiking, boating, extreme golfing, wine tours, heli-skiing or fly fishing. Explore terrain untouched by man and learn about the history and the people that make New Zealand so great.

Your itinerary is limited only by your imagination.

Our unique experience offers you the chance to meet with genuine Kiwi characters from all walks of life that can open your eyes to new adventures that they get to live out every day.

The land is only as rich as the people who inhabit it and we take great joy in introducing you to the farmers, fishermen, viticulturists, eco guides, chefs, and artists that make up our Southland playground.

When you join us for a flight to a mountain top or an extended excursion, our crew will ensure that your Over The Top experience is safe and memorable. We take pride in our safety record, acknowledged year after year with both national and international awards.

From small beginnings, our continued investment in new technologies has seen our fleet grow to include Eurocopters EC130 B4, the world’s most advanced flightseeing helicopter with its enhanced safety features and incredible viewing. We are also proud to offer Queenstown’s only twin-engine helicopter amongst our ranks.

Our friendly and professional team look forward to welcoming you to our world and taking you… Over The Top!

This was out first heli experience and every moment was amazing. We met Dan and Shannon when we entered the office and knew this was going to be a fantastic experience. Dan was very calm, and walked us through the route he planned for us en route to Milford Sound. We sat up front and it was much smoother than I pictured. Dan gave a a very insightful commentary while we travelled over the Southern Alps and proceeded to land on a GLACIER! Unreal! Took many great photos as the landscape continues to change and evolve as you go. Thanks to Dan for making it a phenomenal ride and we would highly recommend anyone to try it out as it was a one of a kind adventure!
