This flight leaves from the Mt Cook Airport, a 5 minute drive from the Mt Cook village. If you are coming up to Mt Cook and are enjoying all that the surrounding area has to offer, then this flight is for you.
This is a 30 minute flight that encompasses all the main geographic features in the Aoraki Mt Cook National Park by circumnavigating Mt Cook, our highest peak at 12,349 ft. Mt Cook is the centre of the national park and this circular flight takes in all the iconic geographic features that this region of NZ has to offer.
You will see the longest glacier in NZ, the Tasman, on the eastern side of the main divide, we will then cross the main divide to the West Coast and take in the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers. We will circle back onto the eastern side of the southern alps into the Hooker Valley before returning back into the Tasman valley to land back where we started.
This is a fantastic flight that condenses the best of NZ’s scenery into an unforgettable experience. We look forward to showing you!

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.
