Experience everything Mt Cook National Park has to offer.  Be captivated by the rugged mountain terrain, and ever changing glacial landscape of the Southern Alps. Fly over the Tasman Terminal Lake and discover the stunning ice formations of the Hochstetter Icefall as you fly beneath the east face of Aoraki Mt Cook. Land in the upper reaches of the Tasman Glacier and enjoy the natural quiet of the magnificent Southern Alps.
There are two options on this experience:
Flight Option 1: 45min chartered flight in a ski plane
At sunrise(or sunset) to catch the first low light on the alps and Mt Cook We have shot a lot from these planes, through the windows (see below photos, taken from this flight from the windows) with the high wings are good for photography.
Flight Option 2: Chartered flight with glacier hike
As above, though we would then land on the snow in the heart of the alps with a qualified alpine guide and all safety equipment (crampons, ice axe and rope if necessary) 1+ hour landing to photograph snow filled and the blue ice of the glaciers
