No, but there are food options available for purchase when we land in Mt. Cook. You are also welcome to bring any snacks of your own you might like.
If you are keen to do one of the longer walks, like the Hooker Valley Track, you’ll want to have a picnic lunch to take with you as there won’t be much time for you to head to one of the cafes.
You will have approximately 4 hours on the ground to explore, enjoy some of our recommended short walks, or grab a coffee and some lunch. We’ll attach a map to your booking confirmation so you can start planning your day straight away.
No. As we operate fixed-wing aircraft, we are unable to land on glaciers. Your landing for this trip will be on a runway/airstrip on the outskirts of Mt. Cook Village.
We do have options when booking online for you to add on a glacier landing via either a ski plane or helicopter.
