Incredible experience!
Feb 2020
I had a perfect experience with this company. The welcome and check in from Dior and the team was friendly and efficient, the flight was fantastic in perfect weather conditions. The commentary and service from the pilot, Simon, was spot on! Would certainly recommend, and believe it is well worth the price point.

Heli-Tour and Glacier Hike. Once in a lifetime experience.
We worked with InFlight to charter a helicopter from our cruise ship in Akaroa/Christchurch across the country to Mt. Cook. There we boarded another helicopter up onto the glacier. The flights and views of the New Zealand Alps were spectacular. Our guide on the glacier loves his job and his enthusiasm Is infectious. He took us on a fascinating hike around the glacier, pointing out stunning crevasses and moulins.

This was truly a “peak experience”. We’ve recommended to InFlight to do more to promote this option - it was expensive but worth every penny.

Tasman Glacier Heli Hike
Feb 2020 • Friends
We did the heli hike yesterday with our guide Sam who was very informative and made the whole experience so much more fun! We were even lucky enough to walk through the ice caves which was our favourite part!! The pilots were also great as they took us on a scenic route back through Mt Cook. Thanks so much for the best experience in NZ yet!

One of the best things that we did on our honeymoon!
Dec 2019
Will always remember this experience. It was one of the highlights of our Honeymoon in New Zealand. At first I thought it was a little bit expensive but it was worth every penny! You get beautiful views from the helicopter ride and once you land on the Tasman glacier it is even better. Walking over deep crevasses and exploring the ice caves! We had some kids on our tour and they did fine. We got lucky and even had a helicopter for the two of us because that is just how the groups got split up. It makes me smile just thinking about it :)

This was a beautiful way to view the NZ glaciers and mountain ranges. Well worth the effort (I hate heights). Thanks to our very knowledgeable pilot Simon. The snow landing was a fun chance for an impromptu snow fight.

Amazing experience!! Special call-out to Duncan!!
Our first time flying on a chopper and it was amazing!! The flight was delayed by 30 mins, but the staff was corteous, friendly, and gave vouchers for free coffee for the three of us. Other than that the whole experience was smooth ana AMAZING (I know I said that a lot), but it really was. Pilot (Richard) was informative and helpful. We got to land on the snow too! Stayed for 5-10 mins there. Weather was perfect on that day. I’m not good with height or flying, but the excitement helped me overcome the fear. To other aerophobia suferer, the flying part wasn’t so bad. The view and experience are worth it, so try it! And go with The Helicopter Line.
On a separate note, I’d also like to genuinely thank Duncan from The Helicopter Line Mt. Cook. He checked us in for our flight on Nov 4. Then on Nov 6, when we got a punctured tire at The Hermitage we met him again (probably he didn’t remember). He helped us changed our tire in the rain without hesitation. We didn’t even asked for help, but he helped anyway. It took 20+ mins. That was one of the nicest thing someone has done to us. So I just want to say thank you to him as a side note here.

Absolutely incredible! Once in a lifetime experience
Aug 2019
I went out on the 'Mount Cook and The Glaciers' 50 minute tour and it was one of the most incredible experiences! I've been on a few helicopters in the past, and this flight and the scenery was in a league of its own.
To land in such a remote area on the top of a mountain was completely surreal and overwhelming. The views of the mountains and glaciers were absolutely amazing, haven't stopped telling everyone about it.

The staff were also great - super helpful and informative. 100% recommend this to anyone traveling to Mount Cook.

Must do excursion in the Mt Cook area!
Dec 2018 • Couples
We went on the Mt Cook Helicopter Flight and Tasman Glacier Walk. Our guide Simon had great glacier knowledge, a good sense of humor, and was an excellent host during our tour. We had very gusty winds, and weren't sure if we were even going to be able to fly, but our pilot Alex maneuvered the heli in a way that made us feel safe and relaxed. Our time exploring the glacier was enthralling. I was surprised by the beauty of the variations in the ice, and how there was such a contrast in colors. This is a must do excursion if you're in the Mt Cook area.

Exceptional memories
Feb 2019 • Family
Ice cave. Massive crevasses. Walking at the foot of Mt Cook, in crampons. Being on the longest glacier in New Zealand. And doing it via helicopter. Rating writes itself. Add on super service and guide...it’s not a rating. It’s about creating a memory which can’t be rated. Incredible time!
