Admire the sights of the Southern Alps on this spectacular helicopter flight. The vast snowfields of Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park, the expanse of the world's longest glacier, and the view of New Zealand's highest peak from amid the snowfields combine for an unforgettable experience.
As the helicopter takes you up over the countryside, you get a sweeping view the ancient waters of Lake Pukaki before flying the length of the Tasman Glacier. Witness the majesty of the beautiful ice formations along New Zealand's longest glacier as your helicopter takes you into the mountains, where you can step out onto snow for a spectacular view of Aoraki/Mount Cook.
Next, the helicopter crosses to the West Coast for a view of the formidable Franz Josef and Fox glaciers. Complete the journey with uninterrupted views of the summit ridge of Aoraki/Mt Cook before you return to the heliport.
