Canterbury High Country Excursions


Discover the picturesque Southern Alps, one of New Zealand's most iconic land features. Fly over the immense checkerboards of the Canterbury plains, across the tresses of the braided Waimakariri River, and to the sheer sides of a steep gorge to touch down at Chest Peak. Sitting at just under 6,500ft, this peak dwarfs most other mountains in the region.

Take in a breathtaking 360-degree vista stretching from as far the eye can see, including the blockbuster backdrops of Castle Hill, the Lees Valley, Flock Hill Station and beyond. All our pilots call Canterbury home and will share their wealth of knowledge, and personal anecdotes as you fly near their much-loved and noteworthy spots.
