Although Heli Biking has been around for about 10 years in New Zealand, it’s only just catching on around the rest of the world. So, why not experience this thrilling pastime in its birthplace just outside Queenstown on New Zealand’s South Island? What exactly is Heli Biking you ask? Well, basically, you strap your mountain bikes to the side of a helicopter, are flown to remote mountains and deposited near the summit so you can cycle down at your leisure! Heli Bike NZ organise bespoke half and full-day tours. One of the most exciting involves flying to Crown Peak with 360-degree panoramas of Queenstown. You’ll be transported via helicopter with your bike off-piste for an exhilarating descent towards the old gold mining village of Arrowtown. Alternatively, choose the tour called The Remarkables Double Descent – which involves two helicopter rides and a massive trail descent of 2,900 metres!
