OVER THE TOP – more than a helicopter flight. With the latest helicopters available, our interpretive excursions take you over Queenstown, Milford and the Fiords of southern New Zealand. We shut down the helicopter on all of our landings to enjoy quiet beauty of this incredible part of the world. Fly with Over The Top to experience alpine glaciers and remote lakes with gourmet picnics, hiking, boating, extreme golfing, wine tours, fly fishing or skiing. Our selection of relaxed experiences distils the essence of New Zealand’s most dramatic scenery whilst immersing you in the natural history of the area. Meet, friends of ours, local photographers, artists, high country farmers, wine makers, skippers all of whom are delighted to share their expertise and friendliness. Safety is paramount and continued investment has seen our fleet grow to include the Eurocopter EC130, the worlds most advanced flight seeing helicopter with its enhanced safety features and incredible viewing.

Superlatives do not do justice to our experience! Two of the party were disabled and required extra help. This was provided with alacrity. We all had a wonderful trip. Tony Heyes (Dr)
