GLACIER WALKS BY HELICOPTER
Escape routes from ordinary life into a world of exhilarating
challenge and environmental immersion.
From the thrilling heights of your helicopter, the wild mountainous wonderlands of New Zealand’s rugged Southern Alps will surge into focus. The vivid scents and sounds of these remote alpine areas await to sharpen your senses, bringing you into peaceful alignment with the present moment.
Heli Glacier Walks combine two complementary activities: a daring encounter with majestic glaciers with a gentle walk amongst dramatic scenery.
Equipped with an ice axe, crampons, and a rope attaching you to your qualified Mountain Guide, you’re set to explore the blue crevasses of icy giants usually the preserve of professionals, after which your feet will connect with the earth for a walk like no other.
A gourmet picnic lunch accompanied by a selection of Central Otago red and white wines and New Zealand craft beer allows for the perfect pause in which to savour the fruits of your remarkable day.
Having witnessed the paths these rivers of ice have forged in our landscape in such an intimate way, you’ll gain perspective on the things that truly matter.
