With nearly 300 glaciers in the region, Wanaka is the perfect place to take a scenic helicopter flight to remote glaciers. On this Glacier Experience helicopter tour you will fly above rugged mountain peaks and deep glacial carved valleys. You will also fly across to the border of Mt Aspiring National Park.

Land and stand on top of one of these giant ‘rivers of ice’ for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. At around 7000ft/2300m you will enjoy amazing views and breathe clean mountain air. Your landing will be for approximately 10 minutes. There will be time for photos and a snowball or two before your return helicopter flight.

Check out our Mt Aspiring & Glaciers scenic flight for a 1 hour glacier helicopter experience which includes a close up view of Mt Aspiring.
