This helicopter flight was fantastic - we thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The staff were very friendly and were able to fit the flight within our schedule, despite the morning fog. I would highly recommend going on this tour while in Mount Cook.

What an amazing experience. You do not realise the enormous area of the alps until you can view them from above in a helicoptor. The walk in the fresh snow on top of Mount Cook was exhilarating. A 'must do' if you get the chance, from either Mt Cook (Glentanner), Fox Glacier or Franz Josef.

Stunning vistas, excellent scenic flights and covered lots of area including circling around Mount Cook. Brilliant snow landing too.

It was okay. For the money we spent on this I don't believe they showed all the glaciers they promised. The only think that was shown was the front face of Mount Cook and the glaziers on the same side. When asked if they will show the other side as described, they said wind was not favourable, I don't think we had a lot of wind that day, it is just that they say something on the site, but don't do what they say. Little disappointing, suggest people to ask clearly what they will show just before you give the money.
