Christchurch to Akaroa Helicopter Trip

Akaroa Helicopter Trip - Akaroa Harbour & Bays

Akaroa Scenic Helicopter Trip


Enjoy a helicopter flight to Akaroa, a gorgeous French inspired seaside village in the Banks Peninsula.

Trip Overview

The locals will tell you that no trip to the Christchurch area can be complete without a visit to Akaroa, the jewel in Banks Peninsula’s crown. The helicopter flight from Christchurch follows the spectacular rugged coastline until you head inland to Akaroa harbour and experience a sight that will take your breath away. Lush forests and grassland run down the hillsides to the azure water of the endless bays, fed by the Pacific Ocean itself.

Early French settlers gave Akaroa its heritage and distinct French feel that is reflected in the names of the streets and local bays. It boasts a number of excellent shops, cafés and restaurants to explore at your leisure.

Explore this beautiful little town yourself, or let us book you on one of the many award-winning tours available here.

Allow 3 hours (approx 45 min flight). Minimum passenger numbers apply.
