Glenorchy Air Mt Aspiring & The Glaciers ex Queenstown

An incredible flight through one of New Zealand’s most spectacular alpine backdrops!


  • Depart Queenstown Airport for an incredible journey through Mt. Aspiring National Park
  • An incredible flight with one of New Zealand’s most spectacular alpine backdrops
  • Soar around Mt. Aspiring, the glaciers of the Barrier Range and the Olivine Ice Plateau
  • Book a sunrise flight to enjoy this spectacular flight as the sun breaks over the horizon
  • Create memories that will last a lifetime shared with people that you love the most

Mt. Aspiring National Park is a top pick for our pilots and this flight is a chance for them to show you their most-loved peaks, valleys, rivers, and glaciers.

Watch Mt. Aspiring transform as you orbit around it and take in the spectacular views of Passchendaele Icefall, the Bonar glacier, and the Olivine Ice Plateau. We'll visit places frozen in time that still look as they did 15,000 years ago, learn all about them, and the rich history of our town.

Discover nature untouched as you fly over the national park and it’s hidden gems such as the Barrier Range and the head of the Arawhata River, points that can only be seen on our stunning scenic flight, or some seriously long hikes.

The area itself is so encapsulating it has become better known for some of its appearances in the film industry; The Lord of the Rings, Mission Impossible Fallout, The Hobbit, Wolverine, and Narnia Prince Caspian being just a few.

If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten track then this is the flight for you.

Add to the adventure and join us on one of our favorite backyard flights at sunrise and experience quite possibly the best panoramic views with the sun rising on the horizon.

Per Adult $399.00
Per Child $199.00
