Lord of The Rings + Glacier Explorer

Flight 107 - The ultimate Middle Earth helicopter tour

No one knows Middle Earth like we do.

Time Away1hr 10mins
LandingsAlpine & Glacier

Our most experienced pilot, Alfie Speight, was the principle filming pilot for the famous Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies so our team have first-hand knowledge of these impressive movie locations. You'll fly over the Shotover River gorge recognisable as the 'Ford of Bruinen' as well as 'Isengard', 'Lothlorien' and much more. Land high on a glacier alongside the 'Misty Mountains' and get a sense of what it might be like to cross 'The Redhorn Pass' and enjoy a second alpine landing to really put yourself in the picture.


Please note: between January and June, due to the summer conditions such as snow cover changes exposing crevasses, we may not be able to land on a Glacier as our landing locations are limited. In such instances, you will always flyover the Glaciers, but we can’t guarantee a Glacier landing. Your pilot will choose the next best alternative such as landing close to the Glacier or opting for an Alpine landing, either of which will have spectacular views.
