What people are saying about Franz Josef Town

After two days of the flight being cancelled because of the weather we were able to fly on the third day and had a marvellous flight right over Franz Joseph glacier, over the main divide, over the Tasman Glacier and landed to the east of Mount Cook. Spectacular views all round and good commentary from the pilot. Very pleased I chose a family company and fully recommend them to anyone wanting an excellent experience and much longer than advertised..

What an amazing trip. Megan was excellent with communicating to bring the trip forward to make the most of it before the weather changed. Gus the pilot was amazing, such a smooth flight with great local knowledge and history. Highly recommend this to anyone we had such a great time.
