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 the helicopter, your pilot will inform and entertain, whilst you take in views of the New Zealand’s ‘newest’ city. 

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 splendour of the extinct volcanoes, that make up the Akaroa and Diamond Harbours. A favourite spot for recreational boats and fishing. A coastline view north of Pegasus Bay as you travel over the Sumner and New Brighton Beaches towards the stunning Southern Alps and Canterbury Plains.

Allow 20 minutes.
