Ōtautahi, Christchurch, a city of exploration, where urban
regeneration, culture and heritage thrives. It is a city constantly evolving,
giving visitors something new to explore. On board your luxury helicopter your
pilot will inform and entertain, whilst you take in views of the newest city in
New Zealand. See the lush greenery of the “Garden City” from Hagley Park and the
Botanic Gardens to Deans Bush/ Pūtaringamotu, home to native bush forest
featuring kahikatea trees that are up to 600 years old. The central city from
above is a mixture of new urban precincts and old historic buildings that have
been restored after the earthquakes. You will have a great view of the
Christchurch Cathedral as it is rebuilt. Look down on the red zone of
Christchurch, once filled with homes prior to the earthquakes and now a
holistic project to connect people, river and land, now known as the Ōtākaro
Avon River Corridor project. Travel over the Port Hills into Banks Peninsula to see
the splendor of the extinct volcanoes, making up Akaroa and Diamond Harbours. Both
being a favourite for recreational boats and fishing.
A coastline view north of Pegasus Bay as you travel over Sumner and New Brighton Beaches towards the stunning Southern Alps and farmed Canterbury Plains.
