To appreciate the beauty and scale of the Mackenzie region, there is nothing better than seeing it from the air. Air Safaris have been flying aircraft in and around the Mount Cook and Westland National Parks since 1970. Over that period, Air Safaris has grown from a single aircraft operation to operating New Zealand’s largest privately owned fleet of modern flight-seeing aircraft. 40 years later, Air Safaris continues to offer the respected ‘Grand Traverse’ flight from both Lake Tekapo and Franz Josef bases.

The Grand Traverse is a magnificent flight encompassing over 200 km of New Zealand’s most memorable and spectacular scenery. With approximately 50 minutes flying time, The Grand Traverse reveals golden tussock lands, turquoise glacier lakes amongst New Zealand’s highest mountains and largest glaciers.

• Beautiful turquoise glacial lakes, golden tussock lands and braided river systems of the Mackenzie Basin.
• Remote High Country Sheep Stations, glacial valleys and landforms
• New Zealand’s highest mountains and largest glaciers; Aoraki Mount Cook, and the Tasman Glacier
• Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers
