Mountain Wedding Location
Cecil Peak is a popular landing location for mountain weddings and surprisingly affordable. It is one of the closest with just a short helicopter flight from Queenstown Airport. The Peak is approximately 4500 ft high with large areas of flat rock and tussock.
There are three well-known landing locations. The Ledge is on the north-facing side of the peak. It overlooks Lake Wakatipu towards Glenorchy and back across to Queenstown township. High cliffs and rocky outcrops make for dramatic photos. Island Spurs and Garden Spurs have some flat grassy area and plenty of interesting rock formations. They both have views across to The Remarkables and the Southern end of Lake Wakatipu.
Our Cecil Peak wedding packages are for landings at either The Ledge, Island Spurs or Garden Spurs. If weather and wind conditions are not favourable for landing at one Cecil Peak location, often one of the others will be possible.
Flight time: 5-10 minute flight from Queenstown Airport
