Overview

Experience the thrill of a helicopter flight and snow landing on a 20-minute scenic helicopter tour, departing from Mt Cook township. You’ll get sweeping views over the Ben Ohau Range in the Canterbury region before touching down on a landing site in a snowfield high in the mountains. Enjoy this South Island alpine setting as your professional pilot narrates the vista, including Lake Pukaki, from above.
  • Enjoy a scenic 20-minute helicopter flight through the rugged landscape of the Ben Ohau Mountain Range
  • Helicopter experience includes a snow landing on a snow field high in the mountains
  • Plenty of photo opportunities
  • Includes hotel pickup and drop off
This 20-minute scenic flight sweeps over the rugged high-country landscapes of the Ben Ohau Range, including a brief snow landing. After hotel pickup, you’re transferred to the helicopter base in Mt Cook village, where you’ll board a twin-engine helicopter that seats up to six passengers.
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.

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.

Re-booking our flight to a later date was no problem at all. Friendly service and a flight experience that I definitely recommend to anyone keen to see some spectacular views.
