One of the highlights of our trip!

A wonderful experience with a very knowledgeable pilot! It was an exciting trip and being able to land and walk on the snow was extraordinary. The staff was lovely to deal with, thank you!

Absolutely stunning

Absolutely amazing. The view was amazing during the whole trip. The snow landing was next to fox glacier and was pretty long. Enough time for taking pictures and enjoy the view. During the flight the pilot gave us informations about the mountains around. We flew very close to Aoraki /My Cook, witch is very dependent on the weather. The whole trip was actually a bit longer than 40 min. An amazing experience. Highly recommended 👍🏼👍🏼 (Btw. It helps to be a bit smaller and skinny, so you can sit in the front, bc the seats in the front are very narrow)
