Heli Landing: Earnslaw Burn

Earnslaw Burn is a fantasy part of New Zealand, set in a magical location where waterfalls flow down huge mountains of rocks. Glacial snow and ice cascades down the mountainside, and the views are breathtaking from every angle.

Created over time, the awe-inspiring Earnslaw Glacier featured in Peter Jackson’s movie, ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’.

Heli Landing: Cecil Peak

We have called this wedding location Heavens Touch as that is what you will feel when you land at 5028 feet above sea level.

Feel the excitement as your helicopter soars through the air, offering amazing views of the mountain ranges that surround Queenstown and the shimmering waters of Lake Wakatipu seeping through the landscape.

You can guarantee snow on this ledge during the winter months.
