Mt Aspiring Flight
Take in the breath-taking scenery of the Mt Aspiring National Park - a wonderful mixture of remote wilderness, high mountains and beautiful river valleys. Take off from our base at Cromwell and take in the immediate highlights: Cromwell town, Highlands Motorsport Park, Lake Dunstan, the meeting of the Clutha and Kawarau Rivers.
Climb up and over the Pisa Range en route to Mt Aspiring, often referred to as the ‘Matterhorn of the South’. Take in the beauty of the southern end of Lake Wanaka as you veer towards the popular Treble Cone Ski Field in the Harris Mountains which lead you into the Mt Aspiring National Park.
Watch Mt Aspiring rise higher and higher as you get closer to its 3033m (9951ft) peak. Marvel at the Lower Volta Glacier which sits directly under the northern side of Mt Aspiring, and the Bonar Glacier on the southern side.
The extensive valleys of the Mt Aspiring National Park have been carved by ancient glaciers over thousands of years ago. Its lush wilderness is a popular destination for hikers and nature-lovers alike.
