Why choose us?

More mountains

From our base in Whataroa Valley West Coast New Zealand, gateway to the outstanding alpine scenery of the New Zealand Southern Alps, we will introduce you to Aoraki Mount Cook (New Zealand’s highest mountain), and the high peaks of Mount Cook National Park where Sir Edmund Hillary trained for his ascent of Mount Everest and for his adventures in the Antarctic.

More glaciers

We will also visit the impressive 29km long Tasman Glacier, the snowfields and ice falls of the Franz Josef Glacier, Fox Glacier and nine other glaciers in the Southern Alps of New Zealand.

More scenic variety

In addition to the magnificent alpine scenery, you will also fly up the giant Whataroa River Valley which is still mined for alluvial gold and you will see the primeval rainforests of New Zealand’s West Coast.

More reliability

Sometimes low cloud restricts scenic flights from Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier townships, but our base in Whataroa Valley is more often quite clear for alpine scenic flights. We operate 7 days a week, subject to weather and suitable flying conditions. You may call us free from anywhere within New Zealand to check weather and flying conditions and for more information — FreePhone 0800 423 463
