Def worth the price. Helpful staff and great experience overall.

It is also weather dependent if you can fly up or not.

Snowmobiles are great fun.

A great family trip, fantastic helicopter flight with great scenery. Snow mobiling high in the remote Queenstown mountains was so much fun, a child each as passengers on the snow mobile was no problem for a first timer, easy, no experience needed. Luke our helicopter pilot and Das our guide for the snow mobiles were awesome and made the trip easy. Highly recommend this experience

The trip starts from a breathtaking heli flight to the Gavie Mountain range, the best time to eye witness the beauty of Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkable. We landed on a remote winter wonderland with snowmobiles waiting. Daz was our guide, he was patient and fun to follow the instructions on. The machine was easy enough to control and quick to accelerate. We had gone for so many long runs, it was just so nice to be able to visit the private mountain range.

It is definitely my favorite trip in Queenstown. The heli flight was amazing with the view of Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and snowy mountains around this area. The time on snowmobile brings you unbelievable feeling of freedom and excitement. The guide was professional and made you feel safe. The staff Maddie and Liv were nice and friendly. Suitable for first timer. Highly recommend.

As non skiers we were keen to experience the snow and found this trip online. It was the ultimate thrill and a big highlight of our three week trip around the South Island. Absolutely stunning scenery, fantastic staff, easy to use machines (even for us in our sixties) and just an incredible thrill from start to finish. Absolutely loved it.
