Winter on the Coast

Fly six glaciers with Precision Helicopters

Find the perfect winter wonderland without crowds!

Winter puts a powerful frame on the West Coast. Forget those rowdy winter resorts ... get your winter thrills in a place where 600 km of mighty mountain snow tops and glaciers set a spectacular scene to the east, then cast your eyes westward to oceans of wilderness coastlines.

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!!

Getting into hot water
