Hi Gina, Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so thrilled that our staff and Josh gave you a fantastic memorable experience. The Heli Hike is the best way to get up close and personal with the ice. We hope you enjoyed the remainder of your New Zealand Adventure. Kind Regards, The Helicopter Line West Coast.
Hi Ben, Thank you for your wonderful review. We are so thrilled you enjoyed your Heli Hike with us. We are fortunate enough that the area we hike on is able to be free-guided, which allows for the guides to choose the path and direction based on safety. Other areas of the ice require a set track due to the nature of the ice fall. The photos you have shared with us are fantastic. Wishing you a safe journey home. Kind Regards, The Helicopter Line, West Coast
