Premier high-country fishing & ANGLING

We have world class wilderness trout fishing available in alpine high country lakes, rivers and streams. Access is not a problem and we have been locating clients to these wilderness places for 20 years. Your satisfaction of your high country fishing experience is of paramount importance to us.

Hanmer Springs Helicopters is able to offer you ease of access, and a wilderness experience in itself!

  • We offer a daily drop off/pick up option or a full heli-fish option with the helicopter remaining with you all day so you can move around with ease
  • Experienced heli fishing guides and equipment are available upon request, but subject to availability
  • There is excellent accommodation available in Hanmer Springs for stopovers. We can arrange this for you, and, of course, you can soak those aching muscles in New Zealand's premier thermal reserve
