This is a great opportunity to capture a close up look at the huge glacial area beneath Mount Aspiring with this unique combination of jet boating, helicopter flight, and wilderness walk.

Board the helicopter from the river bank for a scenic helicopter flight. See hanging valleys where glaciers once lay and waterfalls that cascade from under giants of ice into the streams and rivers that feed into the Matukituki River.

During this unique New Zealand glacier tour experience a high altitude snow landing overlooking Mount Aspiring. Disembark the helicopter for photos before flying down into the Matukituki Valley to join the guided wilderness walk and return leg of the Jet Boat Journey.
