Enjoy a scenic adventure that includes a snow landing on the Tasman Glacier!

Fly in a ski plane and a helicopter on the same day for an unforgettable experience of Aoraki/Mount Cook. Enjoy a scenic adventure that includes a glacier snow landing on the Tasman Glacier.

From takeoff to landing, you will enjoy spectacular views! Fly up the Tasman Valley over the breathtaking blue glacier lake. See the Hochstetter Icefall and the cloud-piercing Aoraki/Mount Cook before landing on the upper snowfields of the Tasman Glacier. 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 so you can enjoy the peace and quiet of nature. You’ll also see Tasman Terminal Lake, Grand Plateau, Plateau Hut, as well as the full length of the Tasman Glacier.


  • Experience spectacular views from above in a ski plane and a helicopter.
  • Land on New Zealand’s longest glacier – the Tasman Glacier.
  • Enjoy beautiful views of the Tasman Terminal Lake, Grand Plateau, Hochstetter Icefall and cloud-piercing Aoraki/Mt Cook.

10/10 – Most amazing experience and one anyone in the area should get to experience for themselves. Especially the landing on the glacier – just phenomenal to experience being up that high on the mountain and flying straight past the peak of Mt Cook! – Meghan Maloney. Nov 2018, Christchurch


Ages 0-10 years are charged children’s price, 10 years and older require an adult priced ticket.

INFANTS: The Civil Aviation Authority stipulates that we operate our aircraft in line with the manufacturer’s guidelines, one of these guidelines is that there is maximum number of passengers allowed on the aircraft, adult, child or infant. Therefore, when an infant is booked on our flights and sits on the lap of a caregiver, we are required to leave a seat free for this infant, thus the total maximum number of passengers remains the same. This is why you will see a charge for infants.
