Southern Alps Explorer
- Duration: 2 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Christchurch, Canterbury
- Product code: PBLW7I
After take-off you will begin to see the vast tapestry that is
the Canterbury Plains and in the distance your destination,
the majestic Southern Alps. Your pilot will guide you along the
beautiful braided Waimakariri River, over the dramatic gorge
and past Castle Hill, a film location of the first Narnia film. From
here you will pick up the route of the historic TranzAlpine railway
through to the upper reaches of the river and into the epic Arthur’s
Pass National Park.
Experience spectacular mountain scenery, then land on a nearby
summit and breathe in the fresh alpine air as you capture those
precious moments on camera.
As an optional extra, stop off at a high country sheep station for
lunch and enjoy some real New Zealand hospitality.
Allow 1.5 hours. Allow more time if you are stopping for lunch.
Minimum passenger numbers apply.
