The most exciting, exhilarating, awesome experience, definitely the highlight of our 3 week trip to New Zealand! The trip was about two hours long, and we went along the edge of the southern alps, down to Milford Sound, then took off through Mount Aspiring National Park and saw a ton of glaciers. We landed three separate times, once at an alpine lake, once at Milford Sound (where we took a short walk to the water) and the third time at the top of a glacier. Our pilot James was wonderful, putting me at ease as I was quite nervous before we took off, having never flown in a helicopter or even a small plane before. I was also concerned about motion sickness, but James said he would do his best to avoid turbulence, and he was able to do so so I was fine the whole trip. He also gave us a running commentary about what we were seeing, which definitely added to our enjoyment. And he made a point of borrowing our camera so we have lots of pictures of my husband and me together! It was definitely worth the money and I would highly recommend the Milford Sound trip to anyone who wants a spectacular adventure!
