What to Expect
Travel reference:

Fly in a skiplane and a helicopter on the same day for an unforgettable experience of Mount Cook.

From take-off to landing, you will enjoy spectacular views! First you'll fly up the Tasman Valley over the breathtaking blue glacier lake. Then you will see the Hochstetter Icefall and the cloud-piercing Mount Cook before landing on the upper snowfields of the Tasman Glacier. Here you will take time to enjoy this unique alpine environment before swapping aircraft and returning to Mount Cook Airport.

These mountains are covered in snow and ice all year round, and the aircraft fully shuts down on landing. You'll also see Tasman Terminal Lake, Grand Plateau, Plateau Hut, as well as the full length of the Tasman Glacier.
