What you can expect

Sensational. Photographers speak of the magic or golden hour — the first hour after sunrise or the last hour before sunset — magical moments as the light changes and the snowy peaks and sky appear bathed in pink and gold. As the sun rises, take flight with Mackenzie Helicopters for an extraordinary opportunity to experience New Zealand’s highest mountains at their most breathtaking. Don’t forget your camera to capture the memories, the gorgeous golden glow and pretty pink hues. Perfect for a special or romantic occasion; even more fabulous combined withlanding for a champagne breakfast or visit to The Bad Decision high-altitude whisky bar.
