Welcome to Tekapo Helicopters

Stunning Scenic Flights in New Zealand

Established in 1998, Tekapo Helicopters operate scenic helicopter flights from bases in Franz Josef Glacier, Fox Glacier, Kaikoura, Makaroa and Lake Tekapo in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand.

Scenic flights range from 20 to 60 minutes and take you over the spectacular alpine scenery of the Mount Cook region including Franz Josef Glacier, Fox Glacier and Lake Tekapo. The majority of our flights include a snow landing. It’s an experience not to be missed!
