What You Can Expect
Step aboard your twin-engine copter and look out from the six-passenger open cabin to an incomparable aerial vista over the Southern Alps. Hover above fascinating ice forms as your pilot provides interesting narration on the ever-changing glacial landscape.
After a remote landing, step out onto a snowfield above the icefalls. You’ll be captivated by your natural surroundings, including views of Mt Cook/Aoraki, which towers at an elevation of 12,217 feet (3,724 meters).
Back on firm ground, you’re transferred from the tour base to your hotel.
Heli trip of a lifetime .Pilot was great and his comments only added to the experiance .
The staff was very helpful and efficient. Pilot did an excellent job. Loved being on the glacier, getting photos.
Amazing! We took our family of 5 on this flight and it will be a favorite memory for us. The helicopter office is right on the main street and within walking distance of one of the larger camper van parks. We took heavy coats, gloves and scarves, but those were not needed. We only needed gloves so we could throw snowballs at eachother.
If they had said it was this good we would not have believed them.
The weather forecast was not good but it turned out a lovely morning (at least when we flew). Enough safety management to give confidence but not boring. We had walked to Fox glacier the day before but it did not prepare us for this amazing flight and landing on the Glacier. Can't think of words good enough to describe the experience of helicopter flight, close views of the mountains and glaciers and a great pilot making it exciting but not frightening. Go and experience it if you think this is an exaggeration.

Whole family loved it. Weather perfect on the day. Views amazing. Pilot and team made the whole process easy. Walking on the glacier one of the highlights of our trip.
Infact they did not do everything they promised. They did not give us a hotel pickup, and 10mts time to spent on the glaciers was cut to 5 mnts. The pilot too wasn't very friendly or informative. It was a bit disappointing.
