The Adventurer - Haupapa/Tasman Glacier Heli-hike Mount Cook

Combine the excitement of walking on New Zealand’s biggest glacier with the thrill of breathtaking scenic helicopter fly-bys of New Zealand’s largest mountain, Aoraki/Mt Cook.




You fly in to your drop off point on a remote part of the glacier. Your guide will outfit you with special ice spikes for your feet, called crampons, which are designed for glacier conditions. Then you’ll explore ice formations, following your guide as s/he cuts steps in the glacier, using skills handed down from NZ’s mountain pioneers. Your trip finishes with another spectacular scenic flight back to our Aoraki/Mt. Cook base.

Time on the ice is up to 2 hours, weather permitting. Cost includes two scenic flights, guide, quality leather boots, socks, gators, snow shoes, harness (if required), walking poles, jacket & over-trousers, gloves.
