Flying from Wanaka is a 1 hour, 30 min­utes re­turn flight, giv­ing you un­en­vi­able views of Mt As­pir­ing, the many im­pres­sive glaciers, wa­ter­falls, the Olivine ice plateau and more as you pass through the Mt As­pir­ing & Fiord­land na­tional parks. You can fly the length of Mil­ford Sound be­fore land­ing and join­ing a two-hour scenic boat cruise and re­turn­ing to Wanaka on a dif­fer­ent route - or fly to Mt Cook and the Fox & Franz Josef glaciers or Mt As­pir­ing and glaciers. The op­tions are end­less. If you're feel­ing a bit more ad­ven­tur­ous, try a half day Fly-Walk-Jet­boat ex­pe­ri­ence where you 'll im­merse your­self in na­ture as you fly deep into the Mt As­pir­ing Na­tional Park and land amongst the spec­tac­u­lar moun­tains that are the South­ern Alps. You then set off on a three-hour na­ture hike on a well formed track that con­nects the re­mote Siberia Val­ley with the Wilkin River Val­ley. At the end of the track you'll meet up with the jet boat that will whisk you back to where your ad­ven­ture started this is the Siberia Ex­pe­ri­ence.
