Enjoy four hours of unique wilderness adventure in Mt Aspiring World Heritage National Park in the lower South Island by air, land and water.

Meet your pilot at the start of your adventure before climbing aboard a Cessna 185 and take off for an incredible 25 minute scenic flight taking in the most incredible views of the region. Land in the middle of the mountains in the Siberia Valley before setting off an unguided 3 hour walk on a clearly defined track exploring river valleys and native beech forest. If you’re lucky you may even spot native fantail along the way.
