Sunrise Mt. Aspiring + The Glaciers
- Duration: 75 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Queenstown, NZ
Join us and discover our backyard at first light before the rest of the town wakes up, seeing peaks and valleys in a whole new light as the sun breaks over the horizon. What better way to start your day than experiencing a sunrise like no other from the window seat of our fixed-wing aircraft. A chance to truly appreciate Queenstown's beauty and some of New Zealand's most spectacular and exclusive views as the day breaks.
Mt. Aspiring National park is a top pick for our pilots and this flight is a chance for them to show you the reasons they do what they do; flying over their most-loved peaks, valleys, rivers and glaciers.
Mt. Aspiring is a defining feature of the Southern Alps and something we are so fortunate to have on our doorstep. On this excursion watch Mt. Aspiring transform as you orbit around it, take in the spectacular views of Passchendaele Icefall, the Bonar Glacier and the Olivine Ice Plateau. Our flight takes you to places frozen in time that still look as they did 15,000 years ago, learn about this and the rich history of our town on this flight.
Discover nature untouched as you fly the national park and it’s hidden gems such as the barrier range and the head of the Arawhata river, points so far from anywhere accessible by road that they can only be seen on our stunning scenic flight, or some seriously long hikes.
The area itself is so encapsulating it has become better known for some of it’s appearances in the film industry; The Lord of the Rings, Mission Impossible Fallout, The Hobbit, Wolverine and Narnia Prince Caspian being just a few.
If you’re looking for something a little off the beaten track then this is the flight for you. We're all here for the view and every seat on every plane is a window seat.
