So spectacular

I was very nervous. Very very nervous. But from the moment we met Ben, those nerves went away. He is so reassuring,and I had the utmost confidence in him. Our flight was a day late due to poor weather. Today,itwas glorious, calm and we saw spectacular and beautiful scenery, from the coast farms, to rugged snow capped mtns, glaciers and frozen lakes. We even saw our accommodation!! If I could do it and love it so much, then everyone can, and should do this amazing experience. Thank you Ben!!!

Well worth it

Wonderful short flight giving a taste of snow-capped mountains and glaciers. We had a great sunny day and could see for miles. Our pilot was very friendly and his commentary made the scenery even better. Could pay more and see more, but for the price, this flight was well worth it.

Not to be missed!

We had looked at a number of different options for scenic flights, this one appealed as it wasn't in the tourist hot spot of franz josef but flew over the local unspoilt glaciers. My friend was very nervous on sight of the 5 seater plane but the pilot was excellent. The ride was smooth and commentary very interesting, it was one of the highlights of our trip. We would recommend to anyone considering a flight! Plus you will not great the same quality at this price point else where. So glad we found this on Bm as we would have missed this. *****!
