Scenic Flights

Every flight over the Southern Alps and our beautiful turquoise glacial lakes is absolutely breath taking. We highly recommend this opportunity during your stay in Lake Tekapo. 

Air Safaris is a family owned business and has been part of the fabric of Tekapo since 1970. Their most iconic scenic flight, the Grand Traverse, provides the opportunity to view New Zealand’s highest peaks and longest glaciers. You can choose from a number of different flights and helicopter options. The friendly narrative of knowledgeable locally based pilots will keep you entertained.


Mackenzie Helicopters are the go-to helicopter operator for heli-skiing, hunting and other backcountry pursuits.

Their pilots operate across all sectors of helicopter operations, including private charter and scenic tourism, backcountry adventures, commercial flying and aerial lifting, agriculture, conservation and fire fighting.
