Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest mountain, but you don’t have to scale the mighty peak to enjoy the views. This 35-minute ski plane ride takes in the highlights of the Mount Cook National Park, soaring over the Tasman Valley, swooping past the Hochstetter Icefall, and touching down on theTasman Glacier. Hotel pickup and drop-off is included.
What to Expect
Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Aoraki Mount Cook Village and a short transfer to Aoraki Mount Cook Airport to begin your aerial adventure. After meeting your pilot and listening to the safety briefing, jump aboard the ski plane and enjoy unrestricted views from the aircraft windows as you take off over the Mount Cook National Park.

Marvel at the spectacular scenery as you soar over the Tasman Valley and the Hochstetter Icefall, and listen as your pilot points out other natural landmarks. During your 35-minute flight, touch down to experience the Tasman Glacier up close and step outside to walk along the snowfields.

On return to the airport, a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

Great Experience

The flight was great and the views were incredible. Landing on the glacier and playing in the snow was quite an experience. Our only suggestion is to get a sound system with individual headphones so passengers can hear the pilot's description of what we were...More
