This short scenic flight option is ideal if you are looking for the opportunity to touch snow and experience the thrill of a helicopter flight. Sweep through the rugged high country landscape of the Ben Ohau mountain range to a landing site on a snow field high in the mountains. Enjoy the fantastic vista from this alpine setting as you look out to the mountains and glaciers, and down to the valleys that were carved out by glaciers centuries ago.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The scenery on the short helicopter ride was spectacular. There were longer and more expensive options, but we found that the short ride was long enough.
