Heli skiing with Harris Mountain Heliski

The South Island of New Zealand is widely regarded as one the best locations in the world for outdoor sports. The unique natural environment and stunning locations form a memorable backdrop to your endeavours.


Many parts of the South Island, often where sports such as hunting and fishing are at their best, are only accessible by helicopter. For more information on hunting, fishing, or other outdoor sports available then please .
