We completed the HeliHike with Mike, very knowledgeable guide. Quite pricey but how often do you walk on a glacier and fly in a helicopter in one day. Plus it won't be here forever!!
Very nice staff and the guides (Scotty, Michael and Tom) were very observant of everyone in the group. Amazing but short helicopter ride.
Thank You - to the thousands of travellers that have contributed to our Top Voted NZ Activities Map - it's free from Rankers.
Went on the Ice Explorer trip which was unforgettable. It is an expensive activity but is worth the money. You get 2-3 hours exploring the glacier with an awesome guide plus a short helicopter ride to and from the glacier. It was breathtaking.
This was a great experience. Got to fly in a helicopter to the glacier and back as well as having a few hours on the glacier with a knowledgeable tour guide. Also, complementary hot pools access after was awesome!
Great guide, good organisation and equipment. The glaciers were bigger than expected. Smooth heli ride and plenty of time on the ice.
So it started with a quick helicopter ride which in itself was pretty amazing. Then all the equipment for the climb was provided. It was good fun, never done anything like it before and the views were superb.
Beautiful view over the glaciers and good guided walk. The guide could have given more information on the glaciers, she was quite boring.
Valley walk - this was a waste of money. Apart from a short walk through rainforest on a path not open to the public, the walk to the glacier was on a DOC path with some geological information provided by a guide.
