Your tour begins with pickup from your hotel in Aoraki Mount Cook Village and a short transfer to Aoraki Mount Cook Airport to begin your aerial adventure. After meeting your pilot and listening to the safety briefing, jump aboard an A355 Twin Engine Helicopter and take off over the Mount Cook National Park.

Marvel at the spectacular scenery as you soar over the Tasman Terminal Lake and the jagged ice formations of the Hochstetter Icefall, then fly around the dramatic east face of Mount Cook.
