Exclusive Experiences

Discover the ātaahua (beauty) of  Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park on an special tour with a private helicopter charter. The helicopter is reserved exclusively for you and your party of up to 6 people. You will explore the landscape of Aoraki/Mt Cook from above and discover snow-capped peaks alongside New Zealand’s highest mountain, Mt Cook. Fly across glaciers that are dotted throughout stunning rock formations and encounter the majestic beauty of this untouched slice of alpine paradise.

We have a highly experienced team of pilots with specialist skills and in-depth knowledge, allowing us to offer you a variety of private charter flights, catered to your wishes. Above all, our friendly team can provide you with plenty of advice to create an entirely bespoke helicopter package, with excellent knowledge of Aoraki/Mt Cook National Park.

Tailored Scenic Itineraries

We can customize all our scenic flights with additional flight time, landings, and routes to meet your needs. If you are travelling in a group, or prefer not  to share the helicopter with other clients, a private charter is the best option for you. Enjoy the insightful commentary provided by your pilot with anecdotes and funny stories, all while being expertly flown amongst glaciers, mountain peaks and blue ice.

Celebrating a special occasion or milestone, or looking for something a bit extra? We can fly you to a remote and exclusive mountain where you can enjoy a glass of bubbles with a gourmet picnic. Afterwards, circle the summit of Aoraki/Mt Cook to get a 360-degree view of the stunning formation. Experience a once-in-a-lifetime touchdown on the Haupapa/Tasman Glacier – New Zealand’s largest – where you can play in the snow on the glacier, even in the middle of summer! Alternatively, fly the entire length of the Haupapa/Tasman Glacier from terminal lake to summit. Whatever you desire, Heliworks Mt Cook can create a tailored helicopter itinerary for you, to make your dream a reality. We are well-renowned for providing a level of individual service that means your experience will be nothing short of perfection.
