Glacier Country Scenic Flights - Whataroa

Welcome to Glacier Country & New Zealand’s Southern Alps

With the Main Divide of the Southern Alps as its backbone, the Whataroa Valley is the gateway to New Zealand’s spectacular ice age scenery.

From our base beside the Whataroa River you’ll fly into this magical alpine environment, experiencing lush sub-tropical rainforest, amazing rivers of ice, alpine snowfields and a multitude of stunning peaks including New Zealand’s highest mountains, Mount Cook and Mount Tasman.

The Whataroa Valley is one of the West Coast’s largest river systems boasting 455 square kilometres of mountain ranges, pristine glaciers, massive snowfields, ancient forests and raging rivers surging from ‘middle earth’ to the rugged Tasman Sea coast.

With friendly personal service, more scenic variety, and excellent flight and glacier- hike choices, you’ll find Glacier Country Scenic Flights are extremely good value.

Enjoy our special places.

We offer 4 options depending on your time and budget.
