Great experience

Really fantastic experience with stunning views. Definitely worthwhile. Pilot great and wonderful stop on top of FJ glacier. Just be conscious if you are booking through a 3rd party (like book me) then the allocated times don’t align necessarily with the available slots from the provider, especially during busy times. After booking a slot on Book Me, we weren’t actually able to get onto a flight until the following day as all the slots on the day we had planned had already been taken. Worth checking with The Helicopter Line directly first if you are on a tight schedule.

Hi Alexandra, Thank you for your awesome review. It is very good advice to check with us here at the The Helicopter Line for availability before you book as we cannot guarantee that what is advertised on third party website is what we have available in the office. We do our best to book to the closest time we have if the time booked on BookMe is not available. The views are so fantastic and is one of the best ways to see the Glacier. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team.

Great experience

Great experience - but costs the same from the organizer! Otherwise if you are going in the summer - don't bother with winter clothing and jackets - its hot!! Leave all your bags and any loose staff locked away in a car and bring a camera! Closed shoes are a must and don't forget sunglasses - else you will be blinded!! haha Enjoy :)

Hi Yulia, Thank you for your review. Sunglasses are definitely are a good idea for our flights even on a cloudy day so that is a great tip for future flyers. We are so pleased you had a great experience with us. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team

Fantastic

We were so lucky to get the opportunity to do this. Perfect weather. Awesome views during the flight and nothing can compare to landing on Fox Glacier. Would definitely do it again!

Hi Annette, Thank you for your fantastic review. We are so pleased the weather turned on a great day for you. The landing is a pretty spectacular feature of our flights and we agree there is nothing to compare it to. Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team

Flight

Flight abit short. Make sure you allow 30 minutes for WHOLE experience. However beautiful scenery. Good to experience in Franz Josef. Do the heli hike instead though

Hi Steph, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. The 30 minute Twin Glacier flight allows you to see both the Franz Josef and Fox glaciers and includes the snow landing in that time. It is a different experience from the Heli Hike, which is where you can walk on the Franz Josef glacier as part of a guided tour, rather than flying amongst the mountain tops. We believe both trips offer wonderful experiences. We are glad you enjoyed your flight and appreciate your feedback. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team
