Remarkables Lake Alta Heli Hike – Privately Guided & Private Helicopter

Combining thrilling aerial views with on foot exploration as you discover picturesque glacial Lake Alta that hangs high above the Remarkables Mountains on this heli hike adventure.

Your once in a lifetime adventure begins as we transport you to Queenstown Airport to board your privately chartered helicopter and ascend over the sheer cliff faces of the Remarkables Mountains to the ski area base (1600m).

We begin our hiking adventure by embarking on a steady climb to Shadow Basin. We traverse across the rugged ridge line, through alpine fields and across glacial streams before making the final approach to Lake Alta.

Crystal-clear Lake Alta is a pristine glacier lake tucked up in the mountain range and is hidden under a thick blanket of snow and ice throughout winter. It’s appeared in many films including Vertical Limit, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.

We pause to take in the tranquillity of this remote alpine wilderness and climb towards the ridge line to take in spectacular views across the Wakatipu Valley. Keep an eye out for local wildlife including our cheeky Kea (native alpine parrot), chamois and deer. Our private helicopter will meet us here before flying back to the valley floor.
