A brilliant family owned and operated heli adventures. The entire staff were professional, personable and gave us a life changing trip up to the glaciers. Very knowledgable and well maintained aircraft. Viewing the beautiful mountains was emotional and definitely a bucket list must. A huge gracias to mountain helicopters.

From the time of making inquiry until our return to the office in "down town" Fox an hour and a half later the team at Mountain Helicopters did a fantastic job. Therese and the office team put us at ease.Michael the pilot did a sensational job of ensuring our experience was absolutely unforgettable....something we will remember for a lifetime. At all times we felt safe and in the most capable hands.We will undoubtedly be recommending Mountain Helicopters as the team to provide an incredible experience for anyone contemplating views of the Southern Alps and glacier country out of Fox or Franz Joseph Glacier.

Terese and Michael and locals with deep roots with the town and couldn’t have been more hospitable. Our 30 minute flight with glazier landing was upgraded to 40 minutes free of charge. Has always been on my bucket list to do so thrilled to be able to tick this off. Couldn’t recommend it more highly.
