Mt Earnslaw Glacier

Experience

Mt Earnslaw Glacier

Discover Middle Earth on our flagship flight as we soar over a remote high-country station towards towering Mt Earnslaw. Experience a close-range flyover of the breath-taking "hanging" Earnslaw Glacier before touching down in the lower basin to enjoy this incredible spot.

If one landing isn't enough, upgrade your flight and add a second landing!

  • Add an alpine landing and enjoy panoramic views of the Dart River and Lake Wakatipu - $100 per person
  • Or go a little further and land on a glacier - $185 per person 

**Please take note that during the winter months the Earnslaw Burn does not have as many fast flowing waterfalls compared to the spring/summer/autumn months. This is still a stunning and magical location even in the winter months however we would like you to be aware of this.

 

 

What to Bring?

As you will be enjoying an alpine environment we recommend you to please: 

  • Wear sensible comfortable covered shoes.
  • Wear warm clothing and windproof jacket.
  • Remember to bring your camera, sunscreen, sunglasses and insect repellent.
