Mt Aspiring and The Glaciers
From $459 per person

Fly back to the ice age that still grips the Olivine & Marion Ice Plateau. These plateau still look today much like the areas around Queenstown & Glenorchy would have looked 15,000 years ago!
Explore from the air the dazzling Passchendaele Icefall, the white expanse of the Bonar Glacier and the perfect symmetry of Mt Aspiring, the Southern Alps’ most beautiful mountain which rises majestically two miles high. Your return flight passes via the gold mining area of the Skippers Canyon.
