What you can expect

Explore the rugged Ben Ohau mountain range that curves through the Southern Alps on this spectacular helicopter tour. This quick, scenic flight gives you the opportunity to touch the alpine snow and experience the thrill soaring over the peaks that dominate the South Island.

After you take to the air near Lake Pukaki, the helicopter sweeps through the rugged high country of the Ben Ohau range to a landing site on a snowy field high in the mountains. Enjoy the fantastic vista from this alpine setting as you look out to the mountains, glaciers, and valleys that were carved out by ages of geology.

Make sure to get plenty of incredible photographs while you play around in the snow before you climb back into the helicopter. Head back to base as you admire the mountain landscape and reflect on your amazing journey.
