We have some of the most pristine fishing areas in New Zealand right at our doorstep. From high country lakes to rivers and streams, we can get you there, quickly and easily.

If you're a local, avid angler Heli Glenorchy's drop off and pick up service provides quick and easy access to some remote spots, with incredible surroundings and plenty of fish! We'll leave you to fill your boots and pick you up at a time that suits you.

Alternatively, if you want to make a day of it, let us take you away for a full heli fish option where we can provide you with a helicopter all day and access to multiple locations.

Upon request and subject to availability, our local guides can show you some sweet spots. We can also help with permits, equipment and refreshments.

If you want to explore, fly with us. 


Our heli-fishing trips are priced based on your requirements, so please contact us for enquiries and pricing. All quotes will be NZD and inclusive of GST. 


Heli-fishing flights are weather dependent. Weather checks are made one hour prior to departure and where appropriate Heli Glenorchy will offer alternative options. Occasionally flight paths or landing locations may alter at the pilot’s discretion. Phone 0800 4354 49 for a weather check.


We can take up to six hunters in one helicopter, however there are restrictions on weight. Please talk to our team regarding passengers and loads. Groups larger than 6 are no problem, just talk to our team. Until further notice, due to COVID-19 social distancing requirements, some restrictions may apply. Our team will chat to you about such restrictions at the time of enquiry.

What to bring

If you're a keen, local angler, you'll know what to bring! Don't forget your fishing licence!

Otherwise, we can help arrange your equipment such as rods, bait, waders, permits, licences and refreshments. These items are subject to availability. Please let us know what equipment you may need so we can provide you with an accurate quote.
