Words cannot explain this most spectacular of adventures - blessed with great weather this helicopter flight piloted by Eddie was more than spectacular! Booking was easy (we just turned up) pre booking preferable if you don't want to miss out. Staff friendly and helpful.

What a perfect day! And well worth the cost. Alpine Adventures staff were very courteous and helpful. We received a safety briefing before getting into the helicopter. Our pilot was great, explaining terrain and geological formation. Do This!

Our chopper ride to the summit of Franz Joseph Glacier was one never to forget. The pilot was terrific skirting the glacier as we flew to 6000 feet and above the glacier. It was an amazing experience. I recommend it to anyone who loves adventure.
