Where in the world can you fly over the crater of a dormant volcano on a city scenic tour? Auckland was built on the isthmus between the Tasman Sea to the West and the Hauraki Gulf to the East and straddles a volcanic field of 55 volcanoes whose cones, lakes and lagoons are best seen from the sky. Fly from the Heletranz Heliport in Albany to the Harbour Bridge, past the historic Chelsea Sugar Works and on towards Auckland Zoo. Look down on Eden Park Stadium and the now extinct cones of Mount Eden and Mount Albert. Don’t miss the spectacular views of Cornwall Park and Auckland Museum as you head towards New Zealand’s tallest building—the stunning Sky Tower!
As you leave the heart of the city and Auckland’s Viaduct Harbour behind, a panoramic view of the east coast and islands of the Hauraki Gulf appears, with views of Devonport Naval Base, Mt Victoria, North Head and Takapuna beach dotted with multi-million dollar mansions. Chopper out towards the crater of dormant Rangitoto—Auckland’s largest volcano, which last erupted approximately 550 years ago—before turning back inland towards the heliport.
Flight duration approximately 18 minutes.
