Receive a pickup from your Queenstown hotel or make your way to the tour operator offices to begin your adventure. You can choose between a convenient morning and afternoon departure options.

When you take off, climb rapidly above the scenery of Queenstown before zooming like a bird over Paradise Valley as you head toward Mount Aspiring National Park. Feel like you’re looking down at a real-life postcard as you take in the captivating scenery of blue-green ice formations and majestic mountain spires.

You’ll cap off your flight by landing on top of Clarke Glacier, the largest in the region, allowing you time to take photos to share with friends and family back home. Then climb back aboard your airborne chariot for the ride back to Queenstown, passing above secluded alpine lakes and Skippers Canyon.

Come back to earth by landing in Queenstown, after which you’ll receive a complimentary drop-off back at your accommodations.
