"We opted for the Aoraki/Mount Cook Paradise flight, which was 40 minutes. It was absolutely fantastic!
The pilot was a great tour guide, pointing out places of interest on the way up and down. The time on the glacier was just epic! We couldn't believe how deep the snow was!! Really pleased we did the trip!"

"From the moment we left the ground the experience was incredible! Words cannot describe the experience of flying over and up along the Tasman Glacier past the imposing Aoraki.
To land at the top of the Tasman Glacier was certainly a highlight and Scott's commentary and knowledge added greatly to the experience. Even the return flight down was just as incredible!
