Had the great pleasure of a Heli Flight up to Mt Cook and was extremely happy we did. The pilot was wonderful, explaining the key features and history as we flew over. He piloted us into the snow line where we got out and had about 15mins playing. Such a wonderful experience.

Wonderful ride with the friendly pilot. Each of us got either a turn up front or a window seat. The view on top was spectacular (albeit short) and we had a chance to take a photo against the helicopter. The ground staff were super friendly as well despite the fact that we were late for check in.
