TRUE SOUTH MOTHER’S DAY GIFT GUIDE


Posted by on


With Mother’s Day only a matter of weeks away, you’re probably starting to think about gifts and what you can possibly come up with this year that is going to be special. You’ve done flowers and chocolates to death, the foot spa is gathering dust in the garage and with isolation a reality for at least a few more weeks, you can’t just nip out to browse around the shops until you see something that you know she will love.

Well, if you’re looking for the gift of all gifts—the one that will spark surprise, delight and excitement and earn you serious brownie points—stop searching, because we have the ‘mother’ of all gift ideas right here! Give your mother, grandmother, mother-in-law or the mother of your children something to look forward to with the gift of one of our incredible True South scenic flight experiences.

Scenic flight over Milford Sound

She might have already been to Milford Sound. She might have done the cruise, seen the dolphins and felt the spray from Stirling Falls – but has she seen the beautiful Milford Sound from above? Present her with a voucher for a Milford Sound scenic flight, an experience that she will never forget. A Milford Sound scenic flight may not be something she would ever treat herself to—and it should be a right of passage for all New Zealanders and New Zealand tourists… Book some extra seats and bring the family along too!

South Island charter flight

Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Is there somewhere special you would like to take her? Why not go all out with the promise of a charter flight departing from Queenstown. Fly her to the town where she grew up to spend the day reliving old memories or fly the whole family to the alps for the ultimate ski trip. If she enjoys hiking and the wilderness, we can arrange a charter flight into Martins Bay in Fiordland to join the infamous Hollyford Track—one of New Zealand’s best walks. With our South Island charter flights, our versatile planes can access hundreds of small airstrips—so let us know if you have an idea and we will be happy to help turn it into a reality.

Mount Cook helicopter glacier landing

Mount Cook helicopter glacier landing

Combine a Mount Cook scenic flight and an exhilarating helicopter adventure with our glacier landing package. This once-in-a-lifetime experience includes a scenic flight out of Queenstown, up and over the snow-capped Southern Alps to one of the airports located on Mount Cook. From there, a chopper will whisk her up the mountain to land on one of the glaciers—either Tasman Glacier, Hooker Glacier, Lake Pukaki, Fox Glacier or Franz Josef Glacier—where she can step out, breathe in the crisp alpine air and take some spectacular photos. With this offer, we’ll even throw in courtesy transport to and from any Queenstown accommodation to have her feeling like a superstar.
