This truly is one flight “to rule them all”. It’s awe-inspiring flight that will take you over the Canterbury Plains and into the heart the Southern Alps up to the majestic Aoraki Mount Cook.

Aoraki Mount Cook is New Zealand’s highest peak standing at 3,724 metres. There are 27 other mountains in this alpine range that peak at over 3000 metres which combine to make a landscape of truly epic proportions.

However, it’s only when the helicopter lands on a near by mountain top and you step out, that the magic truly begins. Breathe in deeply the fresh alpine air that carries a slight chill from the nearby glaciers, as your mind struggles to comprehend the natural beauty that surrounds you. Seasonal snow.

Fly home through Lord of the Rings country and follow in the footsteps of Gandalf at the spectacular site of Edoras, the capital of Rohan. This once-in-a-lifetime adventure will create memories that will last “an age of

middle earth”.
