Hands across the Southern Alps
Adventure tourism leaders Fox Glacier Guiding and Mt Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters have teamed up to create a new experience for visitors to Mt Cook National Park.
The partnership company, Mt Cook Glacier Guiding, has its operational base at the Aoraki Mount Cook Airport and offers heli-hiking, snowshoeing and ice climbing on the Haupapa/Tasman Glacier.
Together the companies have 100 years of experience and Rob Jewell, Fox Glacier Guiding CEO, says this made the decision to join forces an easy one.
“Mt Cook Glacier Guiding is a natural fit with our operations in Fox Glacier, giving our visitors real options on both sides of the Southern Alps. It also gives our guiding team members at Fox Glacier the chance to apply their skills in a different location.”
Adam Joyce, CEO of INFLITE which owns Mt Cook Ski Planes and Helicopters, is also looking forward to the partnership.
“Having Mt Cook Glacier Guiding joining us at our airport base will give our visitors the option of incredible scenic flights and glacier guiding. They can really immerse themselves in the beauty and serenity of the area.”
