Queenstown by Helicopter


Yesterday was Jeremy's birthday and his main present was a helicopter flight over the Remarkables. Which worked out great for me because I got to take part in the experience too! We just did a small route with a quick ascent straight to a peak with a few minutes to get out, rush around and snap a few pictures/ marvel at the beauty. The descent was a little longer with a few big turns and more time to appreciate the incredible view.

All in all I can say it was the best experience in my life (aside from getting married). Seriously!! The view was so breathtaking and having never been in a helicopter before just made the whole thing that much more exciting. We'd definitely jump at the chance to do this again!

Anyway just wanted to drop in to share a few pictures. The weather here today is stunning so we'll be heading up the gondola for a bit of luging in an hour or two. Love this place and all the stuff you can do here!!

  8. I was just in Queenstown a week ago! It really is incredible there, the mountains and lake are stunning. You should pop over to Arrowtown too, it's the cutest, and is beautiful in Autumn!

  16. Wow, I am so jealous! I have never sprung for a helicopter ride, it has always seemed too expensive, but great for a special occasion in a breathtaking location.

    I just discovered your blog, it is beautiful. You have a new follower!
