Harris Mt Cook Heliski Packages
The Aoraki Mount Cook ranges are not only the home of New Zealand’s highest peak, but also some of the country’s most exhilarating ski and snowboard terrain. Harris Mountain Heli-Ski has access to some incredible heli-ski territory in this extraordinary region.
Harris Mountains Heli Ski offer Mt Cook packages that include gorgeous scenic flights between Queenstown or Wanaka and Mount Cook. However if you are staying in or near Mt Cook, you don't have to miss out as you can drive directly to the staging area (heli pad) and save yourself several hundred dollars on the flights.
Various options are also available for private charter and multi-day packages at Mt Cook. Enquire above for an accurate quote.
