This tour has got it in spades! As if it's not enough to see the magnificence of the Napier region from above, you'll also be picked up from the cruise pier or your hotel in a vintage car. How cool is that?

From its steep cliffs blanketed in green to its deep, deep canyons below, Napier is a region of incredible beauty. Yet it's hard to appreciate its magnificence from land. You've got to get up, up and away and take in the view from the sky. As soon as your helicopter ascends, you'll understand. With narration provided by a local, knowledgeable guide you'll soon be learning all about the history of this gorgeous area.

As the helicopter gently rises, the coastal area of Hawke's Bay becomes visible, with views of Mahia's sandy coves, rocky bays and crashing surf. Above Cape Kidnappers, you'll see their famous golf course, perched high on a cliff, as well as one of the largest Australasian gannet colonies in the world. These beautiful birds, with their golden heads, blue eye rings and blue-gray beaks are known for their dramatic airborne dives as they fish for their dinner.

Next up is a view of Te Mata Peak. At over 1,300 feet, it is one of the most recognizable places in the Hawke's Bay area and an important symbol of both Maori and European history. Soaring over Havelock North and Hastings, the expanse of vineyards and orchards below reveal their lush beauty. Finally, before landing back at Napier, you'll take in views of Bluff Hill and Westshore Beach.

After taking this tour, you'll be jealous of birds who have this view all the time.
