A scenic flight allows you to fully appreciate the spectacular landscapes of the West Coast, home to ancient glaciers and snowy peaks.
The West Coast is blessed with mind-blowing topography. Bordered to the east by the Southern Alps, this spectacular mountain range soars into the sky only 30 kilometres from the coastline. Scenic flights offer a breath taking way to experience the West Coast’s stunning landscapes, flying you over huge glaciers, ice caves and snowy pinnacles. There’s also the option of a heli-hike – land on isolated parts of huge glaciers and hike through the snow and ice with an experienced guide. Most scenic flights leave from Hokitika.
