Amazing view from the helicopter and breath taking glaciers. Because of global warming, you can only hike in the Glacier via helicopter. Guide is friendly and places participants and #39; safety as priority. Very memorable hike.
It was espectacular!! I know is a bit expensive but it really worth it, is the best way to experience the Glacier!! If you go on your own you won't be able to see the Glacier like this, only on the distance and can be disappointing, but the views from the helicopter are amazing and walking on the glacier leaves you speechless. The guide was also really nice and we enjoy it a lot!
We arrived well before the scheduled time my 2 Daughters where so looking forward to walking and climbing a Glacier.
We where weighed kitted up and placed clothing on. Then we where told we could not go as the ice was too slippery for my youngest to go on. I am glad that safety is the first concern and the company did go out of there way to get us on at a later time.
I cannot rate the trip but my rating is for the company.
I am sure the trip would have been amazing.
Well organized, good guide, great experience.
Loved it, and would highly recommend as a way to get up close and personal with a glacier. Educational and spectacular.
Very good experience ! It was a beautiful day with a clear blue sky and almost no wind.
The helicopter ride to go onto the glacier could be a little bit longer ... The scenery is so wonderful !
The pilot is great !
Our guide, Nick, on the glacier is a very kind man with touches of humor !
Don't forget to bring some energy bar and some water or at least an empty bottle to drink pure water from the glacier ! We took the tour around 9 o'clock
This tour was one of the best things we did in New Zealand! It is very much worth the money and the tour group did a great job from providing appropriate warm jackets and boots to having very knowledgeable guides on the glacier! Be sure and take your camera as you will take TONS of great pictures!
Excellent trip. Well organised. Knowledgeable and helpful guides Good value for money.
Only criticism is that we would have appreciated more information before arriving for the HeliHike in relation to the clothing and equipment provided by the tour operator. It would have saved us time in preparing for the trip and saved us bringing our own clothing and shoes that was unnecessary.
Exciting and somewhat difficult for a 79 year old - -but doable. I highly recommend it.
