Winter on the Coast

Fly six glaciers with Precision Helicopters

Find the perfect winter wonderland without crowds!

Winter puts an impressive frame on the West Coast. Forget those rowdy winter resorts ... get your winter thrills on the other side of the Southern Alps. Nothing (and nobody) gets in your way here with 600 km of mighty mountain snow tops and glaciers setting a spectacular scene to the east, and oceans of wilderness coastlines to the west.

That's just the start. Follow an endless choice of trails between mountains and sea to discover shimmering lakes, watery wonders, temperate rainforest, palm-fringed sandy bays and glaciers in the snow. Finish off your day with a brilliant sunset. WOW!!
