Magnificent activity

After a small discussion on whether the trip would go ahead because of numbers, the trip itself was wonderful. Very professional, knowledgable staff and a longer trip than advertised, seriously with doing

Helicopter flight

Great company would even managed to get us on an earlier flight. It's an experience we never will forget. Pilot took really his time when we landed on the glacier.

A great way to see the glacier!

What more can I add? Everyone has already said it by this point. This was a lovely trip with an awesome guide. It was the one "splurge" for our visit to NZ and it turned out to be one of the highlights. Highly recommended.

Super friendly pilot, and we were so lucky with the great weather and clear blue sky. Have never been on a helicopter before, and I couldn't have chosen a better place for my first time then here. Gorgeous, simply breathtaking views! It is indescribable what it feels like to see the most beautiful nature of New Zealand in all its glory from a helicopter. This is an experience I will remember for the rest of my life when I look back on my trip to New Zealand. Would definitely recommend this to others!
