Experience the ultimate in culinary and scenic indulgence with our Fly, Lunch & Cruise package. Take off with a flight in our luxury comfortable helicopter along the Abel Tasman Coastline as you marvel at the breathtaking vistas of the park and get a birdseye view of New Zealand’s most iconic national park. Then touchdown metres from Awaroa Lodge and enjoy lunch at the stunning onsite Harakeke Restaurant, surrounded by pristine waterways and native forest.
The restaurant offers indoor and outdoor dining options where you can listen to the magical birdsong and relax in the sun. It has its own organic garden for produce and a selection of fine wines and beers to quench the thirst on a hot summers day. You’ll have all the luxuries of fine dining while feeling absolutely miles away from the busyness of life as you unwind on the beach that New Zealanders loved so much they crowdfunded to buy it back for the public to enjoy!
On return, our helicopter will pick you up from the Awaroa Lodge and you’ll be taken on a new route back through the inland section of the park via amazing waterfalls, swing bridges, and rock formations.
This package is also available from Nelson Airport, with a private car service dropping you to Motueka Airport (included in the price) or the option to upgrade and have one of our helicopters pick you up from Nelson instead!
