FANTASTIC

Because of the weather we couldn't do the flight that we booked but the company were very accommodating and found a good alternative for us. The flight were wonderful with an amazing view. Everything was done in the best and safe conditions. My best experience in New Zealand!

Fantastic Option: Grand Circle

Truly fantastic trip. Dan was a great pilot. We had trouble with finding a safe way to land given high winds, so that part got cancelled after two aborted attempts, but the flight was extraordinary and well worth the expense. The whole team was very professional and kind. Great experience!

Fantastic Experience

This was a simply incredible experience! If the forecast is fine, the 55 min Grand Traverse on a ski plane is the only one to do. In a plane you go further for less money than a helicopter. The pilot and staff were also great. Flying around Mount Cook and Mount Tasman, seeing the West Coast, all the glaciers and finally landing on the biggest one of them all was the best hour of our trip/year. Like someone else said, if you have to save somewhere else on your trip do it but take this flight.

One of our life experiences

Definitely more than we expected. The day was crystal clear, no clouds in the sky and we had the chance to see everything. Pilot and crew amazing! Will recommend it!!
