Get Up Close with the Aurora Australis

There is so much to love about the New Zealand’s skies. They are some of the purest in the world, offering the chance to witness the stars, the mountains and other brilliant gems nature has to offer.

One of the most spectacular of the displays though, are undoubtedly the Southern Lights and at INFLITE Mt. Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters we’re lucky to be located in one of the best places on Earth to see them. Mt. Cook village and Lake Tekapo are nestled under the Dark Sky Reserve, free from the light pollution that makes it difficult to see the aurora with the naked eye.

We recently shared our advice on how to enjoy your quest to see the Southern Lights with Expedia. Getting the opportunity to see the lights, you are sure to gain a totally new – and deep – appreciation for the glittering, starry sky above. When the solar winds are active enough to cause a geomagnetic ‘storm’, the emerald, rose and purple hues will dance across the horizon in an unforgettable spectacle.

As Expedia explains, ‘star gazers can charter a craft to visit one of Mt Cook & Westland National Park Alpine Huts for the perfect way to view the Aurora Australis in New Zealand. Read the article, 'Chasing the Southern Lights in New Zealand', for more information on seeing the Southern Lights with Mt. Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters.
We look forward to sharing with you all that the South Island has to offer – it will be holiday that truly changes your life.
