Queenstown Scenic Flight | Southern Glacier Experience

Queenstown Scenic Flight | Southern Glacier Experience

The majesty of Queenstown is best appreciated from the air. This journey offers dramatic views of the majestic Southern Alps and the Aspiring National Park. Discover the ancient icefalls of glaciers before experiencing an alpine snow landing. Stand in snow surrounded by stunning mountain peaks. Travel through bush covered valleys as you admire unparalleled views of Mount Aspiring and the mighty Rees and Dart River valleys, before traversing Lake Wakatipu’s mysterious northern shores.

The helicopter can hover, and land on some of New Zealand's most remote areas, making it the ideal choice for sightseeing the towering peaks, crevasse filled glaciers and sparkling waterways right up close. Learn about the breathtaking landscape, as your professional pilot delivers an informative commentary en route.
