Exceptional views of Aoraki Mt Cook and the Hochstetter Icefall as you fly up the Tasman Valley. Explore the flawless and pristine Tasman Glacier and experience this unique alpine environment with 600 metres of glacier ice beneath your feet. Reserve your choice of ski plane or helicopter. Both offer a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

Tasman Glacier

The Tasman Glacier is New Zealand’s largest glacier and flows from the Southern Alps southeast to the Mackenzie Basin. It is an unforgettable experience to view this glacier both from the air and on top of it, especially when the aircraft shuts down its engine, leaving you in the serene silence that this breathtaking beauty has to offer.
