Exclusive Helicopter

Enjoy a Aoraki/Mt Cook picnic with a view

Indulge in the silent serenity of the Southern Alps with a private exclusive Helicopter flight including a glacier landing and a private picnic. The ultimate way to see the Southern Alps. Fly over the Main Divide to the West Coast and view the breathtaking landscape of the Fox and Franz Josef Glacier, with a Tasman Glacier landing.

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 native 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, with plenty of time for photographs.

Once you’ve have had your fill of mountain air and food, your private helicopter 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’ll return to Mount Cook airport.

INFANTS: The Civil Aviation Authority stipulates that we operate our aircraft in line with the manufacturers guidelines, one of these guidelines is that there is maximum number of passengers allowed on the aircraft, adult, child or infant. Therefore when an infant is booked on our flights and sits on the lap of a caregiver we are required to leave a seat free for this infant, thus the total maximum number of passengers remains the same. This is why you will see a charge for infants.
