Direct or Scenic Loop
The flight is just the beginning. Above the Hauraki Gulf you’ll zoom past Auckland’s beautiful beaches and smaller islands before the enchanting Waiheke comes into view with its private, golden sands. You’ll arrive in style with your helicopter landing on the hilltop above the stunning Poderi Crisci winery, before being driven down in a private shuttle.

This is the stunning natural setting for a beautiful dining experience. Poderi Crisci is a flagship for island eateries with many commendations to its name including prestigious Metro and Cuisine awards.

One of the finest examples of a kitchen garden lines the entrance to Poderi Crisci. It is not uncommon to see the chefs in the garden sourcing what are definitely the freshest possible ingredients and herbs. They truly believe you cannot match the goodness that comes when you go straight from the garden to plate. Via the kitchen of course.
