To appreciate the beauty and contrasts of Kaikoura, there is nothing better than seeing it from the air. Experience for yourself the stunning beauty of a place where mountains meet the sea, and marine life abounds. Scenic flights are an excellent way to experience the majesty landscapes of Kaikoura.
Fly past Mt Fyffe, high above the Kaikoura township, taking in the beauty of the Seaward Kaikoura mountain range and Blue Duck Valley; then do some seal-spotting as we make our way back down the rugged Kaikoura coastline with its black sand beaches and breaking white surf. You may even spot large schools of fish on the way. A great way to view the changes to the landscape caused by the 7.8 earthquake of November 2016.
