Information on the Glentanner Heli Hike:
Travel somewhere new in the Aoraki / Mount Cook region, away from the familiar tourist route. This guided tour grants exclusive access to private land on family-owned Glentanner Station, one of New Zealand’s most historic and iconic stations in one of the country’s most magnificent settings.
The tour begins with an exhilarating helicopter flight to a high point on Glentanner Station. Take in dramatic views of Lake Pukaki, the Tasman River Valley and Aoraki / Mt Cook towering over the landscape in the distance.
From the landing spot, the tour continues on foot with an easy walk down a picturesque farm track. The track descends gradually along alpine tarns and beneath towering peaks. Your private guide will ensure plenty of stops for photography and will share stories of the station’s history, geological features, flora and fauna and present-day operations. The walk also includes a break at an historic private hut with a scrummy morning or afternoon tea provided.
The walking distance is approximately 5 kilometres over a gradual downhill farm track and some off-track terrain. Guests must be comfortable on uneven sloping ground with some loose rocks, tussocks, etc.
A reasonable level of mobility is required for the walking tour but a return flight from the landing site can be arranged for guests who do not wish to walk.
