I use all local Wanaka helicopter companies. All are great with some companies having exclusive landing rights to some spots.
Other options not pictured here are Isobel Glacier and Alta Tarns and many more spots. I love going to new spots for photos and can work with you and the helicopter companies to find the perfect spot.
Close to Wanaka, with interesting moon-like rolling hills with views down the Cardrona valley
Famous views down the lake with many more options for shooting in all directions. Close to Wanaka. Coromandel Peak now has a $500.00 exclusive landing fee with all helicopter companies.
