Amazing

Amazing! We were very blessed to have perfect weather. From the service at the front desk to our pilot Mike who took us up to the top of the mountain, the whole experience was awesome and the ride was very surreal. Definitely recommend this if you’re ever in Franz Josef. My family loved it and want to do this again when we come back.

Great experience!

Definitely a must do! The 20 minute scenic flight was great. Fantastic aerial view of the franz josef glacier with a brief snow landing for pictures and throwing snowballs at my wife... Worth every cent!

Hi Kuz, Thank you for leaving us an awesome review. We agree that one of our Scenic flights is a must do, as you cannot experience the full extent of the glacial views from the ground. The helicopter affords some incredible aerial views and the snow landing is such a highlight. We thank you again for leaving us some awesome feedback. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team

Breathtaking

What an amazing experience. 20 minutes is probably all you need, the views are stunning. If I’d had more time at the top I probably would have got more creative with the photos, but still enough time to get some awesome shots. Completely different feeling to being in a plane.

Hi Rajit, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review. All our trips are weather dependent but we are glad the weather allowed you to experience the fantastic area we live in. It is such a unique landscape here on the West Coast. There are only a few glaciers in the world where the ice emerges into a rain forest and we are lucky enough to have two of those here in New Zealand. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team
