Here is a recent review from one of our guests:

Absolutely loved my heliski trip! Blue skies, powder snow, no tracks in front of you! What’s not to love. We had great guides Jimbo and Sir Tubington (Mark) who made the day hilarious and helped whenever needed. An amazing pilot Doogle who was very experienced and skilled! I am an intermediate skier and my partner is advanced and was great for both of us. This is my second time heliskiing in New Zealand and I will definitely go again with Southern Lakes Heliski. It is an expensive activity but worth every dollar. Thanks for the memories of a lifetime guys”

With so many activity options in the Queenstown and Wanaka areas, we find TripAdvisor a perfect tool for our customers to get the wisdom they require to book the right activities for their winter holidays. There are over 600 million reviews and opinions covering the world’s largest selection of travel listings worldwide – approximately 7.5 million accommodations, airlines, attractions, and restaurants and the easiest way to make your choice is to see what other people enjoyed or disliked about their experience. Just as the TripAdvisor phrase states “Know better. Book better. Go better “

Thanks, everyone, without you, we would not exist!
