You'll soar through the Southern Alps to see Mt Cook, Mt Aspiring, and the Glaciers. You might even go all the way to see the Milford Sound. This is the perfect opportunity for someone who may or may not already have flying experience to learn how gliders work, and even get some hands on experience at the control with the help of the instructor.
