  • Mount Cook & The Glaciers

    Fly to where only the very few would consider climbing and where we get our wilderness fix every day. First fly over Tasman Glacier Lake before following the path of the Tasman Glacier, New Zealand’s longest. Land in snow with Aoraki/Mount Cook before you. Next traverse the rugged Southern Alps to the West Coast and see the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers before coming full circle with views of the summit ridge of Aoraki/Mt Cook.

  • Mountain High

    This flight takes you past the Hochstetter Icefall on Aoraki/Mt Cook and the upper Tasman Glacier before a thrilling alpine landing in the snow. You’ll fly home through the remote Burnett Mountains with the expansive and arid Mackenzie Basin below you.

  • Aoraki /Mt. Cook Discovery

    Take a flight to the awesome South Face of Aoraki/Mount Cook. Your helicopter will fly you to the heart of the Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park via the Ben Ohau Mountain Range, viewing spectacular hanging glaciers and rivers of moving ice. On your way home enjoy a snow landing, marvel at the mountains soaring around you and take that special snapshot. Then descend beside the beautiful turquoise hues of the glacially fed Lake Pukaki to complete a flight we promise you will never forget.

  • Southern Alps Experience

    Fly over the Mackenzie Basin into the Ben Ohau mountain range.  Take in views of glacial carved river valleys and towering mountain peaks.  Surf the main divide alongside hanging glacial ice before landing on the Glenmary Glacier.  Spend your time on the snow capturing the experience with photo opportunities of hydro lakes, canals and vast river valleys before the return flight brings you back down to earth.
