    Took the Mt Cook ski plane and helicopter tour which was fantastic! The reception lodge is cozy and well organized, the pilots were great and the flights were smooth and exciting. It was amazing to land right on the glacier. A first class tour and highly recommended.

    Absolutely loved this activity. Unfortunately it was called off on the day we were due to fly due to weather, but luckily they were able to reschedule us for later in the week. And thank goodness we could get re-booked as it was a fantastic trip and the sun was shining. Our pilot was super friendly and informative and kept the helicopter very steady and we felt very safe. You have the opportunity to land on the mountain and walk in the snow and have pictures. At points we were knee deep it was fantastic. And then on the flight back we went very up close and personal to the tip of Mount Cook, the only way to really get the scale of the size of the mountain. Highly recommend and worth every penny!

    Amazing experience, guide was very informative and flew the helicopter well and made sure everyone had the chance to see things. Shame the sea plane wasn’t working but pilot made up for it with close up views of mount cook and time spent on the glacier. Well worth the money.
