Perfect weather. Staff were friendly. Pilot was amazing! Narrating fun facts on places we hover. Was totally entertaining my kids. Flew through a cloud. Hovered over waterfalls. And made us play on the snow for as long as we can. Also took amazing photo with the helicopter whilst at the glacier. Super amazing experience!!!
