4 day itinerary staying in Bed & Breakfast accommodation (2 nights), helicopter transfer to summit and mountain top camping (1 night).
Undoubtedly, one of the most exciting ways to explore the skies and reach remote and hidden destinations – helicopters immediately conjure up images of action scenes, excitement and drama. This 3 night package in “Lord of the Rings” country propels you to the summit of one of New Zealand’s most impressive mountains in the Southern Alps. There is no other way to overnight on the mountain itself, than by going up by helicopter and then camping. The privilege of being the only souls and taking time to photograph and appreciate the stunning panorama around you will leave you with an incredible sense of fulfillment. Fitness-wise, with the ascent by helicopter, it is just the 3 hour hike down to do, so some practice walks in advance will be of benefit. This adventure would form a small part of your overall New Zealand itinerary. There is so much to do in this small and dynamic country.
