Fantasy Opportunity

We missed the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers due to bad weather. After talking over our other travel plans with the customer service lady we booked the (Aoraki) Mt Cook Explorer heli flight and glacier landing Weather was so fantastic and well worth waiting for. The pilot, Ben made sure he explained the area and his knowledge was excellent.

Such a highlight!!

We were lucky enough to get a beautiful day to fly out in the middle of winter and what a sight to see! It was awesome to land and have a play in the thick deep snow, our pilot was great and loved going up and close to Mt Cook. Thanks everyone we had such a blast!

Not the best

We were told to bring warm clothes when we make a booking so we had lunch outside then went back to the resort to take wams clothes etc. We we arrived I believe the same guy laughed at us and said we don't need warm clothes as its summer. Why did you tell us to bring warm clothes? -japanese guy at my cook office. We were really squeezed inside the heli as it was a busy season. And the captain told us not to ask any questions during flight as it is busy. Snow landing was disappointing and spend majority of time at the snow we were all staing there for about 10minutes. I do not recommend this
