Take an amazing scenic flight over the Earnslaw Burn with glacier landing!

Time Away50mins

Whether you’re a Lord of the Rings fan or simply want to discover the unique landscapes of this area, the Earnslaw Burn with Glacier Landing flight has something for everyone.

Depart from Queenstown towards the rugged Skippers Canyon – home of one of the early gold-rushes in the region – before flying towards Glenorchy and over the spectacular Rees Valley.

View the unique ‘hanging’ glacier and numerous waterfalls at the Earnslaw Burn.  If that wasn’t enough of a highlight, your professional pilot flies on to land on the Clarke Glacier allowing you to explore the immediate area and take photos of a lifetime.

Lord of the Rings and Hobbit fans may be lucky enough to fly with one of our pilots involved in the filming of these mega-movies!



Please note: between January and June, due to the summer conditions such as snow cover changes exposing crevasses, we may not be able to land on a Glacier as our landing locations are limited. In such instances, you will always flyover the Glaciers, but we can’t guarantee a Glacier landing. Your pilot will choose the next best alternative such as landing close to the Glacier or opting for an Alpine landing, either of which will have spectacular views.
