Impressive scenic flight

We booked at 3PM but the staff allowed us to join 1PM flight then they could fulfill the flight capacity and we did not have risk from 3PM flight cancellation on unmet minimum flight capacity. While I was there, they allowed only to fly from Fox. There was no flight from Franz Josep anymore so I needed to change my plan to Fox earlier to catch the flight even I booked Franz Josep. Stunning view during the flight for both Glaciers in departure and returning. The snow landing on Mt Cook was magnificent. we landed on fresh snow with clear blue sky. 10 minutes there was worth.

A day to remember....

It was one of the best days of my life... My son, his fiancé, my husband and I were flown up to Franz Josef and Fox Glacier, we landed on the snowfields up there, had chance to chat to our pilot. He was informative and knowledgable. Thank you for a perfect trip.

Fantastic experience

Wow this was a great flight over Fox Glacier and a snow landing with a view of Mt Cook. We lucked in with a blue sky day after Cylone Gita passed. We fell into fresh snow when the helicopter landed. NZ you are bloody beautiful. Helpful staff at Mountain Helicopters. Great fun, totally recommend.
