What you can expect

Up in the air is the best way to experience the incredible natural beauty of Aoraki Mount Cook National Park. Book this Ultimate Alpine Experience to enjoy a 45-minute scenic flight over New Zealand’s tallest peaks and largest glaciers with a once in a lifetime snow landing at Tasman Glacier. This is the only place in the world where you’ll get to enjoy flying in a ski plane and helicopter during the same experience.

Take to the skies for an unforgettable ski plane flight over Tasman Valley and the Blue Glacier Lake before landing on the upper snowfields. As the plane shutdowns, stop and enjoy a quiet moment of tranquillity on the glaciers with views of the Grand Plateau before your eyes. After exploring the snow environment, jump in the helicopter to continue the scenic adventure back to Mount Cook Airport.
