We loved our trip with Helicopter Line to the FJ Glacier. We did the Heli-hike on FJ which cost $399. The guide from the FJ Glacier Guides, Tai, was very good. Our equipment was serviceable but old. One of the hoods was missing off a jacket and there were holes in the water proof pants. Boots however were very goo. Also there was little explanation on the ground of what would happen when we got to the top. We knew where we were going, but not what we would really be doing. There was also no commentary on the short helicopter tour, which would have been nice for $399 per person. A good amount of time on the ice, good exposure to blue ice, caves and the Victoria Falls. An enjoyable day out.

We are glad you enjoyed your heli hike with us, the time on the ice is very special, we hope you got some great photos of the blue ice caves and Victoria Falls.
We have pass on the feedback to the team regarding our equipment as we are all assessing and replacing it.
Due to the high volume of air traffic on the glaciers there are times when unfortunately our pilots are unable to give commentary, apologies if this was not explained to you, but we do hope you enjoyed the flight.
