Taking to the air is a superb way to view the magnificent Southern Alps and there is a range of scenic helicopter flights available from this side of the mountains. The shorter options will take take you on spectacular journey around both Mount Cook and the Ben Ohau range, with views of turquoise lakes, braided rivers and tussock hillsides. Longer trips take you across the divide to view Fox and Franz Josef Glacier and the Tasman Sea beyond. It’s sure to be a memorable experience whichever way you do it. All filghts include a brief snow landing if the weather and snow conditions permit.
