Experience this magnificent alpine environment with a high scenic flight over the Ben Ohau mountains. Watch as the landscape changes from low rolling hills, becoming steeper and more rugged as you rise above scarred ridges left by ancient glaciers. Fly close to the steep ridges and rise over a mountain pass that reveals superb views out to Aoraki/Mount Cook and its surrounding peaks. Prepare yourself for an amazing landing on the Richardson Glacier where you will be able to step out of the helicopter and play in the snow. Enjoy expansive views down the Tasman Valley on your return to Glentanner Park at the head of Lake Pukaki.

With its ability to hover, land and provide access to some of New Zealand's most remote areas, a helicopter is the ideal choice for sightseeing that will take you up close to towering peaks, crevasse filled glaciers and sparkling waterways. Learn about the stunning landscape as your professional pilot delivers an informative commentary en route.
