Photo: Cook River New Zealand Aerial

Aboard a helicopter tour, you get an aerial view of the Cook River rushing through the mountainous landscape of Mount Cook on the South Island of New Zealand.

Flying on a helicopter tour with Glacier Helicopters, you will see the area of Mount Cook National Park on the South Island of New Zealand in a whole new perspective. This aerial picture lets you see how the Cook River which originated from the Fox Glacier, meanders its way through the mountainous landscape.

There are nineteen different mountain peaks throughout Mount Cook National Park with Mount Cook being the highest. The Cook River is not the only river that flows through the mountain area as tributaries meet up in all directions.

Nearly half of the landscape is made up of rock and ice due to the glaciers and unique alpine plants flourish in this type of ground. Summer months bring out the Mountain Daisies and other wildflowers as well as the amazing sight of the fast moving Cook River. This is when you will find hikers and backpackers taking to the mountains for days at a time.
