Scenic Helicopter Rides

Experience the Ruapehu district as you never have before, as you helicopter over breath-taking, panoramic, aerial views from the Whanganui River to historic farmsteads and bush.  The views are incredible, from pristine native forest where the awa winds its way through deep bush-clad canyons to rocky whitewater rapids.  For no extra cost you can experience the river a little closer up and combine a helicopter and jet boat experience, complete with lunch!  Bookings are essential as we need to provide plenty of notice for the helicopter pilot.

Clay Bird Target Shooting

Experience the traditional rural fun of clay bird target shooting at our private shooting range with our entertaining tutor, Tony Brogdan.  Tony has been involved with disabled shooting for many years attending international Para trap shooting competitions from 2011, gaining three golds and one silver from 2011 – 2017. He has been a two-time member of the NZ Open Clay Target Shooting Team and member of the NZ Paralympics team in 2019.
