Alpine and Glacier Landings

Cover your shoes in snow crystals on our Alpine and Glacier Landings packages. Experience everything our alpine terrain has to offer by stepping foot on snow. Our helicopters and ski planes take you to places that can't easily be reached by foot, so that you have a secluded snow experience.

Choose the landing that suits you best. Some people enjoy the snowy serenity of an alpine landing amongst the peaks of the Southern Alps. Others prefer to slip and slide of the glaciers. Whatever you choose, you are guaranteed to have an unforgettable snow adventure - just don't forget the sunscreen!

Our packages use ski planes or helicopters. Ski planes are a traditional choice - they were born to glide through mountains afterall! Their bright colours provide excellent photo opportunities. Helicopters offer a sleek and streamlined ride. They also look elegant propped against the white snowpeaks, if we may say so ourselves.
