Our scenic flights have just gotten better! Indulge in the silent serenity of the Southern Alps with a private exclusive ski plane flight including a glacier landing and a private picnic.
Take in the endless beauty of Mount Cook and the national park as we take off and fly over the snow-capped mountains. You won’t be able to forget the lush dark greens of the vegetation and the icy blue of the glacier lake below you as you fly through the Southern Alps.
After you enjoy the beauty of the park from the air, we will land the aircraft on one of the many glaciers that can be found here. After landing on the glacier, our pilot will set up a private picnic on the snow for you to eat while you take in the breathtaking views surrounding you.
Once you’ve have had your fill of mountain air and food, your private ski plane will fly you towards Mount Cook to give you a better view of the highest peak in New Zealand. After this incredible 90-minute journey, we return to Mount Cook airport.
