Unbelievable experience!

This was one of the best experiences I've had in my life. It was unbelievably beautiful being so close to the Glaciers and then landing on them and taking in the gorgeous surroundings was breathtaking. It was truly magical.

Flight of a lifetime

Beautiful trip and flight was smooth. As some reviews have mentioned, it can be quite squeezy in the back with 3 other passangers. Still worth the experience but you are at the mercy of weather. So better have 1 extra day to standby in case flight postponed or cancelled due to bad weather.

Brilliant

Perfect clear sunny day, wonderful views, awesome pilot thx Dan, only thing I would say is it's pretty cramped with 4 in the back and the 2 in the middle have obstructed views.
