Aviation Adventures is based at Pukaki Airport, just two kilometres north of Twizel on the main highway and tourist route between Christchurch and Queenstown. Our location puts us centrally between three of the South Island's most beautiful lakes (Pukaki, Ohau and Tekapo) and just a short flight from New Zealand's highest mountain (Aoraki Mt Cook) and largest glaciers (Tasman, Franz Josef and Fox).

  • Distance from Christchurch is 285 km (allow three and a half hours driving time)
  • Distance from Queenstown is 195 km (allow two hours fifteen minutes driving time)
  • Distance from Wanaka is 144 km (allow one hour 40 minutes driving time).

At Pukaki Airport, you will find us at 1 Harry Wigley Drive which is the northern section closest to Mt Cook and the highway. After entering the airport gate, turn left and go 800 metres north up the internal road.
