Amaxing unforgettable experience. Staff were all lovely and we were lucky to go up on a clear sunny afternoon. Pilot was great. We weren't sure about spending so much on something that lasted 20 minutes but it was incredible and most memorable part of our month long trip

Hi Eva, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a great review. Your photo of the top of the Franz Josef glacier is stunning! The massive crevice’s and ice falling down the side of the mountains certainly leave lasting impressions. We’re glad to hear you had a great time on one of our tours, you’re right, a flight is the way to go. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your time here on the coast and had a safe trip home. Kind regards, The Helicopter Line

We chose the fox Glacier 20 min flight. Book this for your first day of visiting as there is a chance the flight could be cancelled due to weather and safety (which is fare enough). We were able to reschedule to the following day and it was so worth it! We got lucky with the
