Embark on an adventure with us and enjoy a breathtaking scenic flight ex Queenstown landing at Mt Cook where you have the option to double the days adventure and choose how you'd like to spend your day.
Enjoy uninterrupted views from your window seat of of our fixed wing aircraft as we orbit the summit ridge of Mount Cook; New Zealand's highest mountain standing at 3,724 metres. Marvel at the most remarkable glaciers New Zealand has to offer - Fox and Franz Josef glaciers on the west coast and the Tasman glacier within Aoraki Mount Cook national park; the largest glacier both in length and in width.
With a flight time of approx. 60/70 minutes, our preferred route heads directly up the spine of the South Island for you to enjoy panoramic views of Lake Wanaka and Lake Hawea one way and arguably New Zealand's most beautiful lake, Lake Pukaki, the other. The glacial feed into the lake gives it the distinctive blue colour it is most famous for.
Touching down at Aoraki/Mt. Cook Airport on the outskirts of Mt. Cook Village spend up to 4 hours on the ground to explore. Enjoy lunch at The Hermitage Hotel, check out the Sir Edmund Hillary Centre, walk the Hooker Valley Track or, in partnership with our friends at Mt. Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters by INFLITE add on the 'Tasman Experience' and land on New Zealand's largest glacier.
We're all here for the view and every seat on every plane is a window seat.
