Activity description

Witness a natural wonder from above on this 20-minute flight over the Ben Ohau Mountain Range.

Experience the Mount Cook National Park in style on this helicopter experience in the Ben Ohau Mountain Range. Home to mirrored lakes and stunning peaks, this signature flight will take over Glentanner Park and across Lake Pukaki – heading deep into the Dobson Valley for a once in a lifetime landing high in the mountains!

This activity is operated from Glentanner in Mount Cook National Park. This tour travels through the Dobson Valley and across the Ben Ohau Mountain Range.  Local landmarks include Lake Pukaki, Mount Glenmary & The Hopkins Valley.

Head down to the heli base in Glentanner for this 20-minute helicopter flight over the Ben Ohau Mountain Range. A bucket-list experience to share with someone special, this scenic tour offers an aerial view of Mount Cook National Park – allowing you to experience the mountain range in all its wonder. Operated by an experienced alpine pilot, this short flight combines the scenery of the Southern Alps with a snow landing – sweeping through the rugged high country landscape of the Ben Ohau Mountain Range to a landing site on the snowfield high in the mountains.  Enjoy the fantastic vista from this alpine setting and listen to your pilot as they explain more about the area’s natural features that were carved out by glaciers centuries ago, circling back via Lake Pukaku and Glentanner Park.

This fleet consists predominantly of AS350 Squirrels. They are perfectly suited to scenic flights and the open plan cabin allows for excellent views from all seats. Lap-held children under 15kg fly for free.
