Helicopter For Croesus Track?

Postby Sickman on Sun 29th Jan 6:08pm

Who provides the Helicopter service for biking the Croesus Track?
Has Coastwide helicopters become part of Methven Helicopters?

Anyone know how much it costs and best pick up location.

I think we got picked up from the car park on the road up to the croesus. Twas all good.

Can't remember the operator though.

we used someone from Greymouth, maybe westland choppers. We go picked up at the carpark as well.

For Kirwans we used a guy out of Reefton (who also does Croesus...)
His 500 is able to be seen here

i'm guessing it's AirWest...

Cheers for answers. I forgot Reefton is near by. Airwest and Ahaura helicopters both could do it

We rode the track a year ago. The climb is fantastic - easy gradient and well formed, it would be sad to miss it by sitting in a helicopter. The Ces Clarke hut was a great lunch spot. The next section, across the tops to Mt Ryall required a bit of carrying, but only about ten minutes worth. The track down to Barrytown was really tricky as it was wet and overgrown. Lots and lots of unrideable sections (for us), and a lot of carrying our heavy bikes through jungle up little climbs. Next time we go back we might try the Moonlight track, though that's apparently a big day out.
