weather was terrible

While we didn't get to fly because of bad weather they were very helpful at sorting out our refund and offered to rebook another day which we couldn't do as were flying home the next day. I and glad they put everyone's safety first well before making money!

Breath-taking Views

It was a fantastic experience with breath-taking views. The helicopter flight was vey stable, we also had plenty of time to land and play with the ice on the top of the mountain. There was not a dull moment in the entire flight. Our flight has to be re-scheduled twice due to bad weather, the office kept us updated via email in advance so we could plan for alternative activities. Very happy with the service and the experience, highly recommended! Booking from the Bookme website was easy and we got a great discount.

Helicopter Heaven

We had the most amazing sprints with our children seeing snow for the first time! We had a wonderful flight. Saw the most amazing landscapes. You have ample time up in the snow. Such a special experience! Company is very professional too.

Disappointed

Off course a helicopter flight is cool and fun. However it could have been so much better if the pilot wouldn’t have been so rude. It was obvious that he was doing his work but in the automatic pilot. He didn’t care about his customers. We also stayed to long at the gletsjer so the flight time became very short. He did not warned us for this. His flying was far from spectacular, it was basically dull.
