      Incredible experience and beautiful scenery!
      Incredible experience! Being able to land on the glacier for photos and it being warm enough to not need a jacket. Incredible scenery and well worth visiting!

      Amazing experience
      The day my husband and I were to take this flight the weather was terrible and The Helicopter Line Fox Glacier contacted me in the morning to cancel our afternoon flight. They were very understanding of our overnight stay in Fox Glacier and rescheduled for the following morning. The flight took place at 10.00am and was shortened by ten minutes due to wind conditions on the mountain. However this did not detract from the experience. There were six passengers on this flight and I was fortunate to be in the front and my husband behind at the window. It had snowed overnight which meant we landed on a mountain with a fresh covering and the views were spectacular. I would highly recommended this experience.

      Amazing
      What a fantastic team we dealt with for our booking. Brad and his team were so helpful and full of information regarding weather and what to expect. We had the pleasure of Cody being our pilot for the day. He’s is a very professional pilot and felt very comfortable on the flight. He was very informative during the flight and knew a lot about the history of the area. We landed up in the snow and we’re lucky enough that he took some great pictures of us. Can’t wait to book another flight with you all in the future thank you so much for having us.

      A must do experience
      An absolutely must do. You need to be flexible as the weather changes constantly. We were booked at 1 pm but had to rebook for 2:30. The company does its best to get you up on the helicopter. The experience is amazing, so cool to be up in the alpine and the landing was magic. You just need to do this.

      Must do
      This is amazing. The helicopter ride and views are spectacular and we also could get out and walk around on one of the glaciers.

      What an amazing experience!
      From start to finish, an absolutely amazing experience. The staff in the office so bubbly and personable, the pilot ‘Pete’ so knowledgeable and most importantly, a great pilot, and the flight, glacier landing and return was magnificent. An absolute must if visiting this stunning part of the world.

      A great flight but no as described
      Great views and definitely worth doing but total flying time 11 minutes from take off to landing (0927 to 0938). They confirmed the flight at 0800 but only after check in, weighing you and giving you wrist tags did they say it's not a 40 minutes flight but a 20 minute one with no landing. It then turned out to be 8 minutes something or other and 12 minutes actusl flight. They tell you this at the helicopter. I appreciate weather changes but even at a 'reduced rate' of NZ 290 each I feel short changed. Especially as it wasn't even 12 minutes. If I was on my own I'd have refused to pay as the service was not as described but with a family sometimes its best just to move on. They seemingly cannot fly through cloud which of course is fair enough so on a poor day I'd cancel and try again later. To be fair the woman at check in said this to some later customers. I suspect the staff are encouraged to get the punters to fly whatever. Pilot was great. I would ask them exactly the route to be taken and actual flying time. As long as you know this it should be fine.

      Excellent service from start to finish
      The staff were very approachable, and made us feel very comfortable and confident. The pre flight briefing was excellent, but not stuffy. We had a delay due to low cloud, and the flight had to be cut short due to the weather conditions, but the staff were quite happy to refund the difference. The pilot was great. We had a wonderful experience flying over, then landing on the glacier. An experience not to be missed.

    My boyfriend and I flew this morning over the Fox Glacier and Mount Cook. We had the absolute best time flying over the glacier! Clark, our pilot, was extremely profesionnal and made us felt safe during our whole trip. The girls at the office (Fox Glacier) were also super friendly! The visibility was incredible and we got the chance to even see the Tasman Glacier! This experience is definitely one of our highlight and we will recommend you to do it, if you are thinking about it! :)

    Hi Storm, Thank you so much for your incredible review! We will pass on your kind words to Clark and the girls in the office.

We're glad you think it is such a highlight and that everybody should be doing it, we couldn't agree more! Thanks again for your kinds words and we hope you enjoyed your time on our stunning West Coast.

    We lucked out with the weather and went on a beautiful sunny day. The staff were great, the pilot knowledgeable and the views were incredible. The southern alps are stunning and this is the perfect way to see them!

    In response to the “not covid safe” review last month. Whilst we weren’t social distanced (difficult in a helicopter!) all 7 of us, including the pilot, were wearing masks. The company also adhered to the usual hand washing/contact tracing rules too.

    This has been the highlight of our trip so far and worth every cent!

    Kia ora Zoe, What spectacular photos you have! The 40 minute Mount Cook Spectacular flight is our premier glacier country experience- I’m sure you can see why. Landing at the vast snowfield of the Geikie would have been stunning with all that blue sky and snow! Thank your for taking the time to leave us a positive review, we hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here on the beautiful West Coast.

    This was the highlight of my holiday and even though I am not a confident helicopter flyer, I was made to feel secure and safe. Landing in the snow was exciting and added to the experience. Totally recommend. We arrived early and our flight was bought forward and this was great as the weather changed later in the afternoon.
