You really need to immerse yourself here at The Glasshouse. Breathtaking natural beauty, immaculate accommodation and priceless time together. There’s so much to love on your private peninsula for two.
For an exclusive couples' getaway, it is very hard to find anywhere more suitable than the amazing Glasshouse at Ara Roa, near Whangarei Heads.

A 40 minute helicopter trip from downtown Auckland, you will fly up the coast to your accommodation for an unforgettable luxury experience. Features include a salt-water reticulated rock pool, a rain shower that opens up to the outdoors with a stunning outlook to the ocean, and an open fire.

This world class setting and architecture comes naturally with the utmost of privacy, as you are staying on your own private and exclusive peninsula, with waterfront access all to yourselves.

This property has a two night minimum stay, but you do need at least two nights to properly immerse yourself in this unique bespoke location.

For larger groups, you can also book the nearby Te Whara Lodge for another 5 people to stay.



Departure Location

This Helicopter Me Experience departs from our City Heliport at Mechanics Bay. Other departure locations such as Auckland Airport, North Shore Airfield and Waiheke Airfield are also available.


When you make your enquiry, please let us know how many people the flight is for. This particular package is generally quoted for a couple, but our luxury Eurocopters can seat up to six adults. 

Passenger weight

Unlike large airliner aircraft individual passenger weight is critical for a helicopter. The average passenger weight for a full flight must generally be 85kg or less. Passengers over 100kg may be required to pay for an additional seat. Depending on the helicopter type there is also a maximum single seat weight. Please let us know the passenger weights when making a booking. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you are unsure about weight restrictions.


The amount of luggage that can be carried is highly dependent on the number of passengers booked and the type of helicopter. In general, each passenger can bring a small carry on bag, and in our large Eurocopters there is limited capacity for suitcases and larger bags as well, please enquire for details.


In the event that the weather is unsuitable on the day then your Experience will be cancelled and rescheduled at no cost to you. When booking please provide us with suitable contact information so we can get hold of you on the day in the event of a cancellation. We suggest you call on the morning of your experience if you have any doubt about the weather suitability.
