Christchurch Helicopter Tour

New Zealand > New Zealand Activities and Attractions
It is only from the air that you can only appreciate the scale of Christchurch City's devastation and recovery following the 2010 earthquake. This 20-minute helicopter tour flies over the crumbled tower of Christchurch Cathedral, the new sports stadium and other signs of the city’s rebuilding as you listen to your pilot's commentary. Your 20-minute flight also takes you to the spectacularly scenic Banks Peninsula, then back toward Christchurch over the suburbs of Sumner and Redcliffs. Taking off from Christchurch Airport, see a bird’s-eye view of Christchurch’s road to recovery following the devastating 2010 earthquake. Your route takes you over the Christchurch city center, with its vacant city blocks and building sites dotted with working cranes. See how hundreds of ruined buildings are being pulled down and rebuilt, changing the Christchurch skyline, and listen to your pilot’s explanatory commentary. Fly over the poignant ruins of Christchurch Cathedral, and see the vision for the future at sites such as the new sports stadium.
