As a solo traveller this company offers flexibility to ensure you can get in the air.

With minimum numbers required for a helicopter to take off, the office was very helpful in co-ordinating my request for a 45 minute tour (including snow landing) with at least two other people (the minimum number required).

Exceptionally safety focused, the van driver and helicopter pilot went out of their way to offer commentary and answer questions, take photos, and ensure everyone was safely buckled in.

Highly recommended. Great views. To top it all off, a family run business putting money back into the community.

Magnificent.
From contacting the office to the end of the experience, they couldn’t have done more to make the experience better.
Obviously these trips are expensive, but you get what you pay for.
Do it once and do it well is our attitude.
If you want to experience the glaciers from the sky with the panoramic views across Mount Cook and Mount Tasman, then book with this company.
They will only fly if it is safe.
The pilot gives a running commentary during the flight, we felt informed, safe and exhilarated.
Enjoy it and remember the camera!

This company professional, but very friendly and thoroughly informative. Megan a gem, who comunicated well and Gus (owner) gave us a superb flight into the mountains. If you're looking for a glacier flight, then look at this company

Family owned and run business so they have an interest in making it run smoothly and we were very happy with what we got.
Nice helicopter, good ground staff and a knowledgeable pilot who made an effort to talk to all the passengers.
Would recommend this company to anyone wanting to do a scenic helicopter flight in this area.
