Mt Nicholas – Catch & Cook
Catch and Cook – (5-5.5 hour duration and includes 3 landings)
Depart Queenstown on a day of discovery of Fiordland National Park. The first leg of your journey will take you past the Von Valley and Lake Manapouri for Lake Norwest. Enjoy a landing at this stunning high alpine lake before we will head to Mt Elizabeth. Here you will be able to enjoy another scenic landing to have a photo opportunity of the remote and remarkable, Doubtful Sound. This Sound is less visited than its more popular counterpart Milford Sound but we think that makes it even more special!
Next you will fly north along the Southern Alps past rain forest covered valleys and magnificent alpine peaks for Poison Bay and Lake Quill, the source of the Sutherland Falls. Continue past the iconic Milford Sound to view the famous Mitre Peak as you make your way to the spectacular Earnslaw Burn. Here you can take in the beauty and serenity of the Earnslaw’s blue ice hanging glacier and cascading waterfalls before heading to the Old Nicholas Cottage on Mt Nicholas high country station.
Here you can take time out to relax in the unequaled ambience and enjoy a crayfish lunch accompanied by a fine bottle of New Zealand wine or bubbles. On your return flight back to Queenstown via Lake Wakatipu you will be lift pondering on all that can be discovered in the incredible Southern Lakes region!
