  • Location: Mount Cook, New Zealand
  • Duration:  45 minutes (approx.)
The premier flight over this amazing alpine region with vast snowfields, glaciers and a spectacular view of New Zealand's highest peak, Aoraki/Mount Cook. Fly towards the Tasman Glacier and land high above it where you can step out of the helicopter and experience what it feels like to stand on snow atop a mountain. Enjoy the incredible vistas and a close up view of Aoraki (Mount Cook) from your landing site, then take off again and traverse the Southern Alps to view the mighty Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. Marvel at the huge expanses of snow at the head of these crevasse-filled rivers of ice, as they journey slowly down towards the native rainforests of the rugged West Coast.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2014

A HUGE highlight of our honeymoon. Unfortunately, our camera was stolen a couple of days later before we had a chance to download our pictures, but as my wife says, "that just means we have to go back!" What a HUGE trip this is. Stunning scenery and landing on the glacier is a highlight. The only downside is that not all the headsets were working, so the pilot commentary wasn't heard by all. But that's a minor point.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2013

This excursion was a big thrill for us as we expected it to be. Our son is physically disabled and we were nervous about getting him into the helicopter but we managed by using a small step stool and some good old elbow grease .i.e. lifting. The scheduled ride was tentative due to strong winds in the mountains but we made a slightly modified run, landing on a field of ice rather than a glacier. The thrill factor was present throughout the flight as the mountain and glacier scenery is simply amazing. The pilot was very informative and accommodating asking us if we wanted to stay longer in some areas. There were four of us and we will never forget this spectacular New Zealand experience.
