Best experience of the trip

Awesome is the word. The flight around the glacier and the landing on it inspire awe. This has to be one of the most beautiful spots in the whole country and we will definitely be coming back here again.

Disappointment

We didn't really enjoy our experience because we didn't get a snow landing inspite of it saying so. We also were asked to pay 200 dollars on top of what he had already paid and got a private helicopter but the pilot dint interact much and the whole experience was not that exciting inspite of us spending 758 dollars.

Thank you for your review and flying with us. We do need a minimum of 4 people for a flight to go ahead that states in your booking t&cs. We offered you a private (very cheap to what it usually is as is normally $990) to be able to still fly you. We landed you on the Tasman Glacier, but as we have had an extremely hot summer especially in the last few weeks so where you landed on the glacier the snow was limited due to recent rock falls. We are investigating further with our pilot to how we can improve these experiences from your feedback thank you. Safet travels and we hope to see you again in the future.

A must!!

INFLITE deserve more than 5 stars, their ground service is second to none. Then comes the flite and the whole experience for a first time heli-passenger is beyond words - landing on the Glacier was a bucketlist ticked - the pilot is one of the most experienced of all pilots - truly fantastic!!
