Movie Sets, Ski Field & High Country Lakes
Take off from our base at Christchurch International Airport and head for the High Country. Fly over braided riverbeds, through mountain passes, over lakes and high country stations, and take in some of the New Zealand locations that have featured in famous movie sets. It’s the ultimate mid-Canterbury adventure.
Our pilots will personalise this experience for you by sharing their local knowledge and insights of our big backyard as you fly over remarkable sights and landmarks, including; the Lord of the Rings Film Set, the Lion Witch and the Wardrobe Film Set, Lake Coleridge Hydroelectric Power, Russel Flat and more.
We have plenty to share with you and can’t wait for you to experience it.
Bring a camera, sturdy foot ware, and warm clothing – especially for the Rivers and Mountains tour.
Arrive at least 10 minutes before your flight to allow time for a briefing.
