Departing from Queenstown, enjoy an unforgettable flight into the heart of New Zealand's Southern Alps with unparalleled views from the window seat of our fixed-wing aircraft. Marvel at the immense scale and spectacular grandeur of this breathtakingly beautiful region. Experience the most awe-inspiring aerial views of the summit ridge of Mt. Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain standing at 3,724 metres tall, before landing in Mt. Cook National Park. Your knowledgeable, highly skilled local pilot will provide interesting and informative commentary during this 60/70-minute flight of a lifetime.
Touching down at Aoraki/Mt. Cook Airport on the outskirts of Mt. Cook Village we will team you up with your glacier guiding professional from Mt. Cook Glacier Guiding for your Heli Hike on the Tasman Glacier. Once your crampons or snowshoes are fitted you will be flown by helicopter to a drop off point on a remote part of the glacier ready to explore the amazing ice formations. No two trips are the same - the glacier is ever changing so your experienced guides are always finding something new and interesting to show visitors. Your time on New Zealand largest glacier is finished with another spectacular Heli flight back to the Aoraki/Mt. Cook base where your Glenorchy Air pilot will be waiting for you.
The adventure isn't over yet, boarding your return flight to Queenstown, the breath-taking scenery continues down the spine of the South Island starting with spectacular views of Lake Pukaki, arguably New Zealand's most beautiful lake, the glacial feed into the lake gives it the distinctive blue colour it is most famous for.
This is a trip of a lifetime not to be missed!
We're all here for the view and every seat on every plane is a window seat.
