MT. COOK & BEYOND

Mt. Cook | Aoraki is the highest mountain in New Zealand, towering above the Southern Alps at 3,724 metres. Mt. Cook is home to the Tasman Glacier, which has NZ's longest ski runs at 8-10 kilometres. We have options for you to ski, snowboard or hike the mighty glacier. From above, you'll marvel at the milky blue alpine lakes that are glacially-fed, dotted high in the mountains. Get taken back to the ice age with Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier and take in the remote wilderness of Mt. Aspiring.

We have multiple trip options to suit everyone's schedule and activities to check off that bucket list! Your friendly and knowledgeable pilot will provide commentary during your flight, pointing out hidden lakes and formations and the history of the areas you're flying over.
