Highly recommend!

The trip is fantastic, you can see the glacier and mountain view on the helicopter. The guide will also lead you to explore some amazing ice holes. It is definitely my best memory in this trip!

Such a shame. Could have been fantastic

So check in was fun. The staff were super chill good people.. We boarded the Chopper. Again the staff and pilot were real nice folk. Then we landed on the Glacier and the Helicopter flew away. Oh dear. Our guide who looked like he had just turned 25 had a real chip on his shoulder. He acted like he did not want to be there. The group was about 12 people. Elderly folk. Overweight folk. As we did not have ski poles to walk, i think this was the issue. We just did not have enough time as no one could walk on the glacier with there snow spike shoes.. So it was a real issue. We were not really allowed to take photo's as the guide was hostile, as every thing seemed by the miniute for Helicopter pick up. Very annoyed with myself. As i did read reviews and some other customers wrote what my experience was like. Guide just seemed like he wanted to be some where else. I intend to go back to Glacier end of the year, and fly with a different Company. As i won't let this one off bad experience put me of..

Amazing heli hike

Had a great experience. The staff were friendly and very helpful from start to finish. Great heli hike in ice caves with guide Sam who looked after the whole group, including two young children (not ours) admirably. Easy to walk with the crampons. Take water. They supplied sun screen, small packpack, socks, boots hats etc if needed. If any any doubt weather to do this, just do it, you will not regret it.
