From Auckland’s rugged West Coast beaches to the City Skyline icons, an introduction to Sheep Shearing and lunch at island Vineyard, this Heli-Tour has it all. Start your day with a courtesy vehicle transfer from your Auckland CBD hotel to the Heletranz Heliport in Albany. Depart Heletranz and head out to Bethells (Te Henga) Beach on the West Coast flying over some of New Zealand’s finest grape producing regions. We track south to follow the coastline viewing surf-pounded cliffs and black sand beaches, unforgettable scenery and only visible from the air! Fly the beautiful native bush of the Waitakere Ranges before entering the city suburbs with their buildings, marinas, motorways and greenbelts that all take on a different perspective from above. From the City we fly out to Rangitoto Island before heading up the East Coast en-route to rural Wellsford.
Landing at SheepWorld experience a live-action sheepdog display, sheep-shearing, bottle feeding lambs and more. Also learn first-hand about New Zealand's sheep farming and wool industry in a fascinating one hour show.
Afterwards fly to Waiheke Island, landing at Mudbrick Vineyard & Restaurant for a superb three course a la carte lunch with a glass of bubbles on arrival, while enjoying the magnificent views back to Auckland City.
After lunch, vehicle transfer to Matiatia Wharf for return ferry cruise to downtown Auckland or by helicopter to Heletranz Heliport.
