Heli Skiing: The Ultimate New Zealand Experience


There’s no experience quite like our first-class heli skiing adventure across some of New Zealand’s most accessible and mesmerising mountain terrains.

Located a mere 45 minutes away from the famous resort town of Wanaka on the South Island, our surrounding mountain ranges boast the country’s most magnificent views and offer the most spectacular heli skiing opportunities.

As the name suggests, we won’t take you to your heliski on a ski lift. We’ll fly you to the top of the mountain in a fully-fledged Squirrel helicopter.


Heli Skiing New Zealand: No Other Place to Be

When it comes to heli skiing in New Zealand, the Wonderland Makarora Lodge is the best place to act as your base.

At this pristine and stylish resort, you’ll start your day with a delicious (and hearty) breakfast at our main lodge, prior to taking the short stroll onto our onsite heli lounge.

Here, you’ll meet and greet your guides and pilots for the day. They’ll be the ones to take you on your heliski journey.

We’ve partnered up with the legends at Southern Lakes Heliski, who’ll walk you step-by-step through everything you need to know to fully enjoy your unforgettable day.

Your Ultimate Heliski Experience: What to Expect (Hint: Expect to be Amazed)!

When it comes to heli skiing, New Zealand geography offers the most remarkable adventures you’ll encounter around the world.

Our seasoned helicopter pilots will fly you and your group to the head of Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea, where you’ll get some awe-inspiring views of the beautiful landscape, in the west, Mt Albert , The Broome, Mt Turner and the Turrets, in the east Mt Brewster.

Because our lodge is located so close to the mountains, you’ll be on the snow and on your ski in just minutes.

Once you arrive at the mountaintop, you’ll be treated to the opportunity of an electrifying 1,000 vertical metre run – where you’ll feel like a gliding eagle as you soar down New Zealand’s most gorgeous snowy mountain ranges.

You’ll get to experience one of our extraordinary heliski packages starting at $1499 per person (you’ll get between eight and ten 1000 vertical metre runs, with two nights’ accommodation in one of our funky and warm A-Frame Chalets).
