wanted to do a helicopter flight over the glaciers and land on the snow, however the day we were there was some bad weather on its way. called in the air safaris office and a delightful woman at the desk said that they were still flying but had a 6 seater airplane. My partner was a bit apprehensive as she doesn't like small aircraft but was convinced to do it. The lady arranged for us to fly within a couple of hours and off we went to the airport. The guys at the airport and the pilot were really helpful and informative, the pilot gave us a running commentary thoughout and pointed out all the major sites including the franz josef and tasman glaciers and we circled round mount cook as well, there was a bit of turbulence but hell the views and experience will stay with us forever.I believe it is a family run business and if so I would recommend anyone passing through lake tekapo to book this flight. Once again I would like to thank all the staff for a wonderful time.
