Mt Cook Experience
Named after the famous explorer and navigator, Aoraki Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest peak. Surrounded by glaciers, this alpine environment is truly spectacular. Once there, transfer to either a ski plane or local helicopter service and land up on the Tasman Glacier. Then enjoy a scenic flight back to Christchurch over dramatic mountain ranges and extensive farmland.
Our pilots will personalise this experience for you by sharing their local knowledge and insights of our big backyard as you fly over remarkable sights and landmarks, including the Central Plains Water Scheme, Lily Bank Station and the Tasman Glacier.
We have plenty to share with you and can’t wait for you to experience it.
Bring a camera, sturdy foot ware, and warm clothing – especially for the Southern Alps Tour.
