What You Can Expect
Look out over a panorama of mountain peaks that surround the valleys of the Canterbury region, carved out by glaciers centuries ago. See the glacial waters of Lake Pukaki from above, and look north for a glimpse of distant Aoraki/Mt Cook, New Zealand’s tallest mountain, which towers 12,217 feet (3,724 meters) above sea level in the UNESCO-listed national park.
Listen as your pilot delivers expert commentary en route to one of the mountain peaks, where you’ll experience a soft landing in a snowfield. After some fantastic photo ops, you’ll fly back to the tour base for a ground transfer back to your hotel.
Fabulous tour. Highly recommend this. Excellent friendly staff, flight of a lifetime!
This helicopter flight was fantastic - we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The staff were very friendly and were able to fit the flight within our schedule, despite the morning fog. I would highly recommend going on this tour while in Mount Cook.
This was one of the highlights of our trip. The scenery on the short helicopter ride was spectacular. There were longer and more expensive options, but we found that the short ride was long enough.

The view was very good, unfortunately the photo session was too short (not more than 10 minutes) and allowed at 1 spot only.
