    What to Expect
    This 20-minute scenic flight sweeps over the rugged high-country landscapes of the Ben Ohau Range, including a brief snow landing. After hotel pickup, you’re transferred to the helicopter base in Mt Cook village, where you’ll board a twin-engine helicopter that seats up to six passengers.

    Look out over a panorama of mountain peaks that surround the valleys of the Canterbury region, carved out by glaciers centuries ago. See the glacial waters of Lake Pukaki from above, and look north for a glimpse of distant Aoraki/Mt Cook, New Zealand’s tallest mountain, which towers 12,217 feet (3,724 meters) above sea level in the UNESCO-listed national park.

    Listen as your pilot delivers expert commentary en route to one of the mountain peaks, where you’ll experience a soft landing in a snowfield. After some fantastic photo ops, you’ll fly back to the tour base for a ground transfer back to your hotel.
