Mt. Cook & The Glaciers Scenic Flight ex Queenstown

Experience aerial views of the spectacle that is Aoraki / Mt. Cook plus three of the country's most spectacular glaciers, all in one breathtaking flight from Queenstown...


  • A once in a lifetime adventure flying across New Zealand's entire Southern Alps
  • Depart Queenstown Airport to take in the incredible glaciers of Fox, Franz Joseph and the Tasman Glacier
  • Views of the summit ridge of Mount Cook; New Zealand's highest mountain
  • Landing within Mount Cook National Park to enjoy a coffee with unbeatable views
  • Create memories that will last a lifetime shared with people that you love the most

Embark on an adventure with us and encounter real mountain flying from the window seat of our fixed-wing aircraft. Your knowledgeable, highly skilled local pilot will provide interesting and informative commentary.

Marvel at the most remarkable glaciers New Zealand has to offer - Fox and Franz Josef glaciers on the west coast and the Tasman glacier within Aoraki Mount Cook National Park; the largest glacier both in length and in width. Enjoy uninterrupted views of the summit ridge of Mount Cook; New Zealand's highest mountain standing at 3,724 metres. Experience aerial views of Lake Pukaki, arguably New Zealand's most beautiful lake. The glacial feed into the lake gives it the distinctive blue color it is most famous for.

We then land at an airstrip within Aoraki Mount Cook National Park to spend approximately 30 minutes on the ground to indulge in a coffee or a bite to eat from a local cafe with unbeatable views of Mt Cook from the ground before another epic 1-hour return scenic flight to Queenstown.
