A scenic flight allows you to fully appreciate the spectacular landscapes of the West Coast, home to ancient glaciers and snowy peaks.

West Coast
Franz Josef Glacier, West Coast

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.
