The scenery, situation and the fact that you are flying through it make this trip. The fact that the pilot was terse and almost incommunicate could not detract. My 2 questions once we had landed on the snowfield were replied with a grunt and a...More

Well organised office made booking easy as I had to add in on another group as I was alone. They rang me in enough time for me to get to Twizel for take-off. A wonderful experience walking on top of the glacer covered in snow.

Hi CS 17983, We stayed at Aoraki Court Motel, heated floors for winter, can highly recommend it. Better book early because it is very very popular. The Hermitage Hotel Mt Cook is also excellent but can be a bit pricey. Just... More
