Cecil Peak Heli-Hike

Combine a breathtaking scenic flight and exclusive hiking adventure on this unique half day heli hike experience.

Soar high above Lake Wakatipu, enjoying spectacular views across Queenstown and towards Fiordland National Park before touching down on the iconic Cecil Peak Stastion for a once-in-a-lifetime hiking adventure.

Your heli hike experience begins as we transport you to your privately chartered helicopter at Queenstown Airport. Take in the panoramic views as we fly across shimmering Lake Wakatipu towards Cecil Peak, before landing on the high-country station at a height of 1,978 m (6,490 ft).

Cecil Peak Station offers exclusive access to Alpine Adventures’ unique heli-hiking experience on their 13,000ha working farm. Renowned for their merino sheep and cattle, you will experience the day-to-day workings of this remote alpine station in a rugged part of New Zealand.

Immerse yourself in the secluded wilderness of the station as we begin our hiking adventure. Your personal guide will lead the way across deep valleys, down rugged spurs, through alpine tussocks, discovering sparkling alpine streams and crystal-clear lakes along the way.

Breathe in the crisp alpine air and listen for the sounds of native birds as you soak up outstanding views throughout your hike. Lose yourself in nature and feel a sense of remoteness on this dreamlike alpine station.

Our private helicopter meets us here before we enjoy a scenic descent back towards Queenstown.

Our local personal guides love to tailor each tour to suit your interests and tastes. Get in touch to customise your hike and make your Queenstown adventure one to remember.
