Your Heliski Base

Just 45 minutes from Wanaka, our surrounding mountain ranges offer some of the very best and most accessible heliskiing terrain in New Zealand. And it’s all right on our doorstep. Start your day with a hearty breakfast in our main lodge before taking the short stroll to our onsite heli lounge where you’ll meet your guides and pilot for the day.

We work exclusively with the team at Southern Lakes Heliski offering you a fantastic, guided experience all just a few minutes flying time from your Wonderland accommodation base.

And what’s even better, at the end of your day you’ll land back at Wonderland Makarora Lodge where you can enjoy a well-deserved refreshment in our bar and restaurant.


Your Heliski Experience

Starting at just $1499 pp you’ll get between eight and ten 1000 vertical metre runs along with two nights accommodation in one of our funky, warm and cosy A Frame chalets.

Our terrain is located at the head of Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea offering you a fantastic variety of untracked powder with breathtaking views as well.

Because Wonderland Lodge is situated right amongst the mountains you’ll be on the snow just minutes after leaving in your helicopter.

The season runs from mid-July to end of September and places will fill quickly.
