We flew with the helicopter to Fox Glacier and Mt Cook. It was nice to fly over the landscapes and the amazing Glacier. You could see the Glacier clearly, but around Mt Cook there were some clouds.

We did a 40 minute 'Mountain Scenic Spectacular!' flight and it was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of it. It was beautiful to see Franz Josef and Fox Glacier from above. Did a snow landing in front of Mt Cook. Priceless!

A perfectly organised trip to the roof of New Zealand, it was worth every $$, well trained and professional staff.

I spent $500 for a scenic helicopter flight (70min) with a glacier landing (Tasman Glacier). You have to do one scenic flight over the Southern Alps in New Zealand. But the weather has to be stunning!! Do a helicopter flight not just with an airplane!!!

Great experience. We had bad weather but they fitted in a scenic flight as soon as there was a break.

The scenery, situation and the fact that you are flying through it make this trip. The fact that the pilot was terse and almost incommunicate could not detract. My 2 questions once we had landed on the snowfield were replied with a grunt and a dismissive attitude so I simply gave up and absorbed the experience. I do highly recommend this trip but don't expect any commentary, explanation or answers to questions just enjoy the ride!
