One of the easiest and most spectacular ways of seeing Mount Cook is from the air. On this combined ski plane and helicopter tour you’ll get to see things that you couldn't any other way, such as lakes, glaciers, and hidden parts of Mount Cook. You’ll travel in one type of vehicle on the way up, and the other on the way down, for an exciting and varied experience.
Highlights
  • An ideal tour for travelers with limited time
  • Listen to your guide’s commentary through a personal headset
  • Experience New Zealand’s tallest mountain from the air
  • Enjoy the thrill of both a ski plane and a helicopter ride

A fantastic experience, sadly we were not able to take the ski plane due to low cloud so two helicopter rides instead. We were just a few days away from lockdown so consider ourselves very lucky to have got this in before it all kicked off. The staff are amazing, the views
