What a spot for a picnic!

Queenstown Heli-Picnic

Thursday, June 8, 2000
Have a romantic picnic 1.5km above sea level and see some of New Zealand's most beautiful scenery from a helicopter.

Over The Top Helicopters know exactly how to please their passengers. They have been flying around the area since 1992, and specialise in exclusive tours such as champagne lunches, fly fishing excursions, heli-skiing, bungee jumping, glacier hiking and boat cruises on Milford Sound. They use Hughes 500s, which take up to four passengers.

The flight to Cecil Peak Ledge takes about nine minutes. But Over The Top are flexible: if you choose another place in the vicinity, and they can land there, that's where you'll go.

They do like to take you to a remote area, so as to make the whole experience more special.

New Zealand's south island.
