Over The Top’s adventure began in 1986 when Louisa (Choppy) Patterson realised her dream to showcase the secret parts of New Zealand to visitors who desired an experience not normally accessible. To soar amongst mountains, comb a deserted beach, sip pure water from a suspended alpine lake, land on a pristine glacier, meander through a rainforest and enjoy a picnic in a habitat seldom frequented by man.
The essence of our company is about the people and stories of our region as we drop in on some distinctive New Zealand characters in many of our excursions including farmers, whitebaiters, viticulturists, eco guides, chefs and artists.
We offer engaging tours covering the most popular attractions and activities in the region, as well as uniquely designed experiences tailored exclusively to your desires. Your itinerary is limited only by your imagination so enquire with us to find out exactly what dream adventures we can turn into realities.
Over The Top operate the most modern helicopters in new Zealand.
Distinctively ALL BLACK, our fleet incorporates Airbus, Eurocopter EC130 and the Squirrel AS350, as well as the large capacity twin engine BK117.
Our helicopters feature luxurious leather seats, plush carpet and Bose noise cancelling headsets for your ultimate comfort and experience.
