The Snow landing is an amazing flight but it is very chilly up there! The views more than made up for the cold I am sure. Thank you for choosing us to fly with and we hope to see you again soon.

This company seems to operate all over the South Island so I imagine they do. I recommend you contact them direct, their customer service is spot on.
