    The Picnic on the Peak is one of our most popular & unique excursions, perfect for a romantic occasion, family experience or a group celebration! Queenstown has some of the most breath-taking scenery in New Zealand and what better way to enjoy the remarkable views of Lake Wakatipu and the Southern Alps, than enjoying a champagne picnic perched high up on one of the peaks. Over The Top will fly you from its helibase to a mountainous location which overlooks Queenstown where you will have 180 degree views of the Wakatipu Basin. Here you will be left to enjoy your champagne picnic of meats, cheeses, salad, fruit and a selection of beverages for as long as you desire. The helicopter will return to collect you when you’re ready and provide you with a bird's-eye view of Queenstown, before heading back to the Over The Top heli base.

Absolutely stunning!
May 2021
I booked this trip as a surprise for my wife and it could not have been better. The team were friendly and helpful. The flight itself was comfortable and offered brilliant views over Queenstown, Lake Wakatipu and the Remarkables Range. After a very scenic flight we were landed into an idyllic spot with a spectacular view. We were dropped off and left with an excellent picnic containing everything you could want. We had chosen to stay for around 2 hours, but were told we could choose to be picked up earlier if we wanted or stay longer by letting the team know.
Having such a beautiful spot all to ourselves truly was magic. I can't recommend this highly enough - especially for a special occasion.

Awesome Chopper Experience
Nov 2020 • Friends
Great experience. This is a slick operation with a state of the art chopper and friendly staff. Take something warm as it can get chilly on the peak whilst drinking your bubbles and eating your pavlova. Would definitely recommend using these guys.

Simply stunning. Great, knowledgeable pilot, Brad. Just fabulous. What's better than a helicopter up a mountain to play gold & drink champagne? Truly a special event

Fantastic Tour

Our pilot Ryan was skillful and knowledgeable. First time in a helicopter but put at ease. These helicopters are stable and comfortable. Some bumps and lumps expected in the mountain range of course. I highly recommend the tour.

Exceptional way to experience Queenstown!
Dec 2018 • Couples
The name of the company says it all.... Over The Top, is right, and we loved every minute of it! This experience was something straight out of Hollywood! A helicopter ride to the peak of a remote mountain, a gourmet picnic lunch with champagne, and 360 degree views of Queenstown, the lake, and the surrounding mountains - there is no excursion that can top what you'll experience with this tour.

Thank you SoCalQTPie! We really appreciate your amazing review, we are certainly lucky to have some of the most stunning locations in our backyard and sometimes our pilots feel like they are living in a Hollywood Movie. Glad you enjoyed our gourmet picnic lunch & champagne with stunning views to match. I will pass on your kind words to the team and we look forward to 'topping' that experience next time you visit us.

Could not have planned this any better if I tried
I had planned a trip to Queenstown to propose to my now fiancée and thought that a landing on a remote hill/mountain with a picnic would be a great way to do it, so emailed OTT and was delighted to find that this is in fact one of their options.
I could not have planned this trip any better if I tried!! They picked us up, the flight out was great, they dropped us in a perfect location with wind shelter and great views in mind, and the picnic supply was amazing. Even if I had put the most thought I could imagine into what to include I would not have been able to come up with what they provided, we were blown away. Their flexibility with pickup time was also very nice. I could not recommend these guys highly enough.
We also upgraded the sparkling to Moet for ~$40 more too.

Flight of a Lifetime!
Aug 2018 • Couples
Couldn't ask for a more amazing experience.
I booked this as a special trip to propose to my partner.

Jess at the HQ was amazing in keeping in contact with me, as due to weather we had to change the date of the flight.
They had marked it was for a Proposal, so she texted and emailed me so I wouldn't accidentally be overheard by my fiance.

The whole experience was amazing!
From the Van pickup at our hotel, to the overview of everything at the Helicopter office, to the flight itself and then the drop-off back at base.

It was magical and the scenery where you get dropped is breathtaking, as we were dropped at Cecil peak, about 4000 feet up!

All the picnic gear is dropped off as well, with a picnic blanket, chairs, cutlery, wine flutes - the WORKS!

The platter and spread of food and drinks was amazing! They provided a bottle of champagne and also enough food for 3-4 people!

It was just amazing and couldn't ask for more!

Of course my now-fiance said YES and we have about 200 pictures to remember the whole experience!

Thanks to everyone at OTT for the heli-trip of a lifetime!
