We were extremely lucky to have our 40 min flight before rain and clouds came rushing in. It was an incredibly beautiful trip with a pilot who knew what she was talking about and was a true delight to fly with. We saw all the glaciers, Mt Cook and much more and even had a snow landing on Fox Glacier. Also saw the red colour of all the glaciers, coloured from the smoke from Australian fires. The trip left us blown away and I would definitely say it was well worth the money spent.

We were not sure about doing the flight as we were on a world tour and budget was prime. We got up in the morning and we’re faced with blue skies so we bit the bullet and went for the 30 min flight. It surpassed all our expectations and we are so glad we did it. The pilot Bill was great and explained everything as we flew the glaciers, we were not rushed at the top when we got out. All in all I would recommend this company as it was well organised and did not disappoint.

We took the 30 minute helicopter flight up Fox Glacier, across the face of Mount Cook, then landed on the top of Fox Glacier. Immediately after takeoff the experience seemed surreal as we cruised up the snow covered mountain ridges. The weather was fantastic with clear blue skies all the way. The scenery was stunning at the top of Fox glacier for our landing and 5 minute walk around, then the exciting trip back down as we skimmed the surface of the glacier. A brilliant experience

Best helicopter ride to the top of the world! An Experience we will never forget, flights are on tap at fox glacier. we booked 1/2 hour before and wanted to get up straight away as we could see the clouds rolling in from a distance. Went to the summit landed and back to base before the weather turned. Best photos, videos and so easy to do something pretty extreme!
