Best Scenic Flights in Wellington City
Local Recommendations from our My Guide Wellington team
Get up in the air to find out first hand exactly why this city is the centre of the Kiwi film industry. Scenic Flights in Wellington are a great way of surveying this stunning landscape. A bird's eye view will get that imagination going.
Wellington Scenic Flights offer a fantastic way of seeing the city from a unique viewpoint. It's also the quickest way to see the many movie locations used in films like Lord of the Rings. Queens Wharf has a couple of operators you can just drop into and book with. And it's not just planes, helicopter rides are also available. Trips last anything from half an hour to three or four hours, and some packages have champagne thrown in, so a scenic flight makes a great present, too. Don't just limit yourself to Wellington, either. Many flights will take you out over the Kapiti Coast to the north, and the tip of the South Island and Abel Tasman National Park, to the south. Let your skilled pilot zoom you over this amazing landscape, telling you fascinating stories along the way.
