Full Description

Experience exceptional views of New Zealand's Southern Alps. There’s nothing like having your feet on the ground at this elevation and really feeling like you’re part of our beautiful landscape. A very popular look at our spectacular glacier landscapes (allow 20 minutes)

Essential gear for snow landings:

  • Sunglasses
  • Covered-in shoes (sneakers or trainers are fine) or hiking boots
  • Wear comfortable outdoor clothing suitable for wearing on the snow. Occasionally the temperature can be 5-10 degrees cooler on the snow than it is in the village. Check with our ground crew if you are unsure of what to wear
  • Plenty of room on your memory card and/or phone for photos.
  • Note: Selfie sticks, especially extendable ones, are a safety hazard and must not be taken
  • Note: due to safety reasons, we do not allow passengers to take iPads onboard as they can impede the view of the pilot and other passengers. You're very welcome to bring along another means of taking your photos (phone, camera or GoPro are all great)

Check-In Time:

Check-in time is 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time. This allows time for payment processing and aircraft allocation.
