Queenstown (Tāhuna), is a place of beauty and provides a landscape like no other.

See the peaks and valleys of Mt. Aspiring National Park in a whole new light as the sun breaks over the horizon. Experience the overwhelming sense of calm that comes with watching the start of a new day and walk away with memories that will last a lifetime.

 

What better way to start your day than experiencing a sunrise like no other from the window seat of this 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. 

 

Depart Queenstown Airport for an incredible scenic flight around Mt. Aspiring, the glaciers of the Barrier Range and the Olivine Ice Plateau. Explore from the air the dazzling Passchendaele Icefall, the white expanse of the Bonar Glacier and the perfect symmetry of Mt Aspiring - the Southern Alps' most beautiful mountain which rises majestically two miles high.

 

This 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 the town while enjoying your scenic flight.  

 

You will not regret your decision to set an early morning alarm to see the beautiful views of this incredible region.
