The Southern Alps are longer in length than the French, Swiss and Austrian Alps combined; and much of which is only accessible by helicopter. Monarch heli-ski Safaris combine unique mountain lodge accommodation with days of unforgettable skiing and snowboarding, attainable for all levels. Lodge amenities include full spa facilities such as Finnish saunas and hot tubs, offering the perfect antidote to sore muscles, the ultimate venue for après ski or a place of day time relaxation for non-active friends and family.

Below are sample itineraries of trips we have created with our clients. Your bespoke travel itinerary can be as assisted as you'd like - with an associate Monarch back country local specialist, or with a Monarch guide to show you the really amazing places known to us locals. We are here to help and make your experience as memorable and as seamless as possible, taking the hassle out of organising the finer details. The level of our involvement is at your discretion.

Should you see an itinerary that seems of interest, or you have ideas of your own, start by filling in the enquiry form where we will ask you for some preferences. We will then come straight back to you on your preferred method of communication at a time that suits you and start to shape the most perfect New Zealand skiing safari.
