Great experience although the 30 mins when by very fast, but I think it is an experience not to be missed.

The helicopter flight is too good to believe. This is the best part of our New Zealand trip indeed. The view up to the glacier is too gorgeous to describe. can’t recommend more. Special thanks to the staff Ada and Cameron, super helpful and nice. Love them.
