Mt. Aspiring + The Glaciers
- Duration: 75 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Queenstown, NZ
- Product code: LOCAL2020
Mt. Aspiring located at the heart of the Aspiring National park is often described by our pilots as their favourite flying in the area. If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten track then join us on one of our favourite backyard flights.
This flight is a chance for our pilots to show you the reasons they do what they do; flying over their most-loved peaks, valleys, rivers and glaciers as they take you away from our beautiful town on this 75-minute long scenic flight.
On this excursion watch Mt. Aspiring transform as you orbit around it, take in the spectacular views of Passchendaele Icefall, the Bonar Glacier and the Olivine Ice Plateau. Our flight takes you to places frozen in time that still look as they did 15,000 years ago, learn about this and the rich history of our town on this flight.
Often described as the Materhorn of the South, Mt. Aspiring is a defining feature of the Southern Alps and something we are so fortunate to have on our doorstep. Discover nature untouched as you fly the national park and it’s hidden gems such as the barrier range and the head of the Arawhata River, so far from where the roads will take you that they can only be seen on our flights.
The area itself is so encapsulating it has become better known for some of its appearances in the film industry; The Lord of the Rings, Mission Impossible Fallout, The Hobbit, Wolverine and Narnia Prince Caspian being just a few.
We're all here for the view and every seat on every plane is a window seat.
Flights depart from Queenstown Airport, with complimentary pickups available.
