On your journey you will take in the unique views of Canterbury, the Banks Peninsula, and the Canterbury Plains. You will have views of snowy mountain peaks and crystal-clear lakes. Upon landing at Mount Cook airfield you will be transferred to an iconic ski plane, the mode of transport for the late Sir Edmund Hillary on some of his trips into the National Park. The flight will take in views of the Tasman Glacier, the longest in New Zealand.
On completion of your ski plane flight you re-board your helicopter to depart to a resort for lunch (lunch is not included in cost). After lunch, you return to Akaroa wharf to board your ship. Your pilot will inform you of the interesting facts & historical features of our region. Allow 6 hours this.
