Wow, we booked this months ago and was worried that may be the weather may get in the way. Well we couldn't have picked a better day. Beautiful blue skies.
Picked up from our accommodation on time for the 10 minute drive to the airfield.
Signed in and weighed and had our safety briefing.
Had around a 10 minute wait for another trip to finish.
Our pilot Stu came in and we were all introduced. Made our way to the helicopter and Stu strapped us all in.
There were 5 of us so 1 seat was empty up front. Stu told us we'd all swap places to get a chance of a window seat.
Took of and we set of for the mountains, absolutely amazing views. Photos cannot do the view justice. Stunning.
Really smooth ride over the peaks and then we put down on a dry mountain top. Views were superb.
Then we all changed seats as promised and then flew upto the snowy peaks.
Just amazing views, such a privilege.
Landed on the glacier, funny when you sink into the snow upto your knee.
Stu took photos for us all and then took his own.
The flight back to the airfield was just as good as the journey up.
We passed over several lord of the rings locations. Big fans so that was a huge plus for us.
Landed back at the airfield and got to see the photos Stu had taken.
Taxi was organised for out return..
