Air Safaris Flight Details

Air Safaris are a locally owned and operated flight seeing company offering a scenic flight called the Grand Traverse.

The Grand Traverse flight takes approximately 50 minutes and encompasses two World Heritage National Parks in a tour amongst New Zealand's highest mountains and largest glaciers. Air Safaris operate a large and varied aircraft fleet, which is ideally suited to flight seeing. Every passenger has a window seat for optimum viewing.

From the Glentanner Airport the Grand Traverse makes its way up the Tasman Valley to the Murchison Glacier. From there the flight turns slightly east to see the Godley Glacier, which feeds Lake Tekapo.

The flight then takes a turn to the west, taking in the Tasman Glacier in all its glory and then over to the West Coast where you will see the mighty Franz Josef and Fox glaciers and circle Mount Cook before returning back to the Glentanner Airport..
