Overview

Enjoy exclusive and personal helicopter flights in New Zealand with us! We take up to 5 to 6 passengers at a time on our Mount Cook Franz & Fox Magic Helicopter Flight from Lake Tekapo that includes a Snow Landing, perfect for individuals or family groups. 

Marvel at views from a different perspective that flights by helicopter provide. We’ll lift off from Tekapo, then we’ll wind through remote alpine valleys before approaching the majestic Aoraki/Mount Cook standing at a height of 3,724 metres above sea level. Get to know more about our high country areas so you’ll better appreciate them as you make your crossing into the Mount Cook National Park where you’ll be able to view our tallest peaks and longest glaciers. You’ll make a short journey over the Southern Alps for incredible views of the Franz and Fox glaciers, then make your way back east for an unforgettable snow landing on Liebig Dome at 7,700 feet. Depending on weather conditions, your pilot may have to land on a different location; you will be advised on the day.

From Liebig Dome, you’ll be able to look directly back to Aoraki Mount Cook National Park without anything getting in the way of a stunning view. Alternatively, we can take you for a one-of-a-kind landing at one of the remote musterers’ huts of Glenmore Sheep Station in the Cass Valley.

  • Admire the contrast between the fresh spring-fed waters of Lake Alexandrina with that of the glacial-fed Lake Tekapo. 
  • Observe ancient glacial deposits, including huge “erratics” (stones and rocks carried by glacial ice far from its source) that remained as ice melted during the last ice age.

The 60-minute tour leaves Lake Tekapo only and operates after minimum passenger requirement is met. We will work with each person’s schedule to combine groups where possible. A weight restriction of up to 120kg per person also applies, as the helicopter is able to carry only up to 5 or 6 passengers at a time. At the time of flight, the pilot will decide the suitability of passengers considering the aircraft weight limits. Alternatives are offered if necessary. We welcome bookings of larger groups, which we will operate as individual flights.
