Fantastic trip with fantastic weather (sunny day and blue sky). Our guide was very knowledgeable and made it possible to walk through a spectacular ice cave/tube.
The real hiking time was a bit too short in my opiniion, but nevertheless a great adventure.
Heli Hike tour was cancelled due to weather conditions. The Helicopter Line let us transfer our booking to a flight over Mount Cook when we were at that location the following week. The snow landing and flight over Mount Cook was one of the highlights of our trip to NZ.Reviewed by: Margaret G, March 2014

Wow! I did the helicopter tour around all three glaciers and it was awesome! The drive from Christchurch was not good though so if your going to do it drive from queenstown!Reviewed by: jason h, January 2014

Fantastic...Really enjoyed the whole trip as the guides made the extra effort to bring us through the caves during the hike. Highly recommended.Reviewed by: Chin It T, December 2013
I would recommend this trip to anybody as it was one of the most amazing experiences I have had. The helicopter ride was enough of a thrill in itself, but the hike too was just a fantastic experience. Our guides, San and Lauren, were knowledgeable, professional and sympathetic to the needs of our group which had varying degrees of ability. I was given all the equipment I needed before I left and felt warm and comfortable the whole time. The only regret I had was having to come back down!Reviewed by: Stephen L, Singapore, November 2013
