Depart from Makarora with a breathtaking 25-minute flight, from your unobstructed window seat. Expect to weave through the dramatic Southern Alps in a little yellow areoplane, lovingly named ‘Buttercup’. The 360-degree panoramic views are nothing short of spectacular. 

Once you touchdown in the secluded Siberia Valley, you’re greeted with complete serenity before embarking on a three-hour walk through the Mount Aspiring National Park. Wander amongst rugged mountains, waterfalls and ancient forests – suitable for all ages with good fitness levels. Finish off your adventure with a thrilling jetboat ride.

Southern Alps Air is Wānaka and Makarora’s only locally owned and operated fixed wing scenic flight company. Having operated in this region since 1975, it has a perfect safety record.
