APPROX 15 MINUTE FLIGHT FROM QUEENSTOWN AIRPORT
Magical Places – Earnslaw Burn packages start from $5895
Earnslaw Burn in Mt Aspiring National Park is one of our favourite wedding locations. Our helicopter company holds exclusive landing rights for this incredible spot. Enjoy spectacular views of braided rivers and historical gold-mining sites on the flight before landing on the valley floor. A perfect location for a LOTR elopement as the site was a set location for The Hobbit movie. The bright blue ice of Earnslaw Glacier looms 2000m overhead, feeding multiple waterfalls which cascade down the valley walls. Imagine your ceremony set in this lush valley with the sound of cascading water and the rare view of a glacier directly above.
We recommend a dual landing with a second stop at Earnslaw Tarns/ High above the valley floor with mirror-like glacial tarns (ponds) with Earnslaw Glacier as a majestic background. A great way to capture an icy feel even in the middle of summer.
**Please note that spring/summer/autumn is the best time for fast flowing waterfalls. It is still a magical location in winter however we would like you to be aware there are not as many waterfalls during this time.
