Take a helicopter ride through the rapidly changing landscape of Christchurch to see its unique and dramatic history. The tour's aerial perspective gives you an astounding view of the varied environment below you, as well as the developments that are reshaping the look of the city.

You begin by meeting your pilot, who takes you through the flight path you are about to take in the helicopter. After a safety briefing, sit in the passenger seat of the aircraft, ascend into the sky, and get a bird's-eye view of ChristChurch Cathedral, the brand-new stadium, and all the amazing sights the region has to offer.

Learn about the city's most important features while seeing one of the most picturesque and exciting landscapes in New Zealand. Your pilot helps you understand the widespread impact of the earthquakes in 2010, with hundreds of buildings coming down and being rebuilt as part of the ongoing reconstruction effort.
