"We flew over glaciers while circling Mt. Cook, eventually landing on the Tasman Glacier. Many thanks to Heliworks and our wonderful pilot for making this one of the highlights of our trip to New Zealand."

"Don't know where to start…! This was an experience we will never forget, it was incredible! We took a helicopter flight which included landing on the Tasman Glacier.
Our pilot was fantastic and was able to calm any fears we had beforehand. The flight was smooth and the scenery was spectacular.
This was definitely our number one highlight from our New Zealand trip! Thank you to everyone at Heliworks for making it happen!
