Flying over Mount Cook National Park allows you to see some of the most wonderful scenery in New Zealand from a different and breathtaking perspective.
Stunning Tasman Glacier
Typical trips begin with flying the full 17 mile (27km) length of the Tasman Glacier and passing over Mount Cook (Aoraki). After landing and walking on the glacier, the aircraft returns through the might of the Southern Alps . Other landmarks that may be seen include the Hochstetter Icefall and the Fox Franz Josef Glaciers. The Tasman Glacier is the most frequent stop; however, Fox or Franz Josef may be used instead.
Choice of Experiences
Flights take place within small, light planes or ‘squirrel’ helicopters, with the maximum sized aircraft accommodating 8 people. The aircraft have retractable skis to allow them to land safely on the glacier, as well normal wheels for sturdier ground.
There are, of course, options not to land on the glacier, perfect for those pushed for time or who don’t fancy the thought of skiing in a plane!
For those who are looking for something a little more adventurous, there’s the option to go ice climbing or heli hiking.
