      Absolutely unbelievable experience
      This sort of trip has been on my bucket list for a while. I missed out on a ski plane trip in Alaska 2 years ago but I wasn’t missing out this time. We left on the ski plane & returned on the chopper & it was sensational. This is a must do experience. You’ll love it.

      Breathtaking trip
      This is a must do if you are visiting MT Cook. Mark Hayes was our pilot and he is highly skilled and showed us just breath taking views of Mt Cook. You will not be shortchanged for the Flight. Just Awestruck. Capt.D Even Michigan

      Given the weather was crap on the day we originally booked the staff were very helpful with making changes and keeping us up to date. Pilot was fantastic the views where extrodinary, well worth doing.

      I should have done another flight
      I did the 25 mins helicopter flight. The helicopter fly like about 5 mins before it made landing on one of the site which I feel that there was nothing much to see there other than playing with the dirty snow on the ground. Honestly I feel disappointed the moment the helicopter made the landing. I immediately regretted that perhaps I should have chosen the longer flying route and obviously it would cost more but I think the scenery would be a lot different from this flight. Due to my time constraints, I could only do the shortest flight. So my advise that if you have seen snow and would like to see more than snow then choose other flight. After 10-12mins at the landing site. We returned to the helicopter and 6-7 mins later we returned to the starting point.

      Bait and switch ...avoid (scam)
      (1) We booked for 2 adults and 1 child + 1 infant in the lap. We confirmed a week before our arrival that they had registered our infant in correctly. On arrival we were informed that they can take only three of us. We could obviously not leave an infant back and were charged full fair for him as if he were an adult; he sat in the lap all through and did not take a seat. TripAdvisor booking page clearly shows booking fee for 4-12 year olds and adults, but nothing for infants. (a) I checked with another agency across the hall and they confirmed they do not charge for infants. (b) We have done another heli ride at Fox Glacier a few years ago and at that time our then infant daughter was also not charged for. Essentially each helicopter has a 6 person passenger limit, and they decided to knock us off after first confirming everything is ok. If we had been told beforehand, instead of 20 minutes before the flight, at least we could have made other arrangements. And, of course, they were in no way apologetic. The definition of a scam is: a dishonest scheme, and in my opinion the actions here fit the definition. 2. The flight lands on a patch of dirty snow about the size of a small house (see attached photos). There is no glacier involved and the personnel at the counter admitted as much (the listing says Tasman glacier touch down). Having done Fox glacier earlier and comparing to this experience, would recommend booking a proper glacier experience even if it costs more. Overall quite a disappointing experience.

      Fantastic Mt Cook and Glacier Heli Trip with Glacier landing
      We opted for the helicopter ride with glacier landing. Our trip was fantastic. Andrew was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed the views of the glaciers. We got to spend time on the landing, without being rushed. The weather was great. Highly recommended.

      Very short aerial view of Tasman Valley
      Technically only 15 min helicopter ride since you spend 10 mins on a patch of ice on the mountain. The views are outstanding and our pilot was also really great.

      Lifetime Memories of Helicopter Flight
      We booked a heli-hike to enjoy the view of the glacier and mountain ranges at the Mount Cook from a helicopter ride. We managed to witness the beauty of Mount Cook, Tasman Glacier Lake, Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. We even stopped over at the Tasman Glacier to enjoy views from different perspectives. The pilot was very careful and experienced that we felt safe throughout the flight. The company also could arrange a transport to pick us up from our accommodation at the Mount Village. The check-in process was easy and the safety briefing prior to the flight was clear and useful. We were advised to call/ email the company to double check if the flight was confirmed a day before our tour because the flight could be cancelled due to bad weather to safeguard the safety of the tourists. Thankfully, we were lucky that the weather was good on our booking time slot and we managed to enjoy a wonderful flight. It was one of the best experiences we had during our trip in New Zealand. A wonderful memory that’s lasts of a lifetime!

      Magnificent views
      The original scheduled tour was cancelled due to weather condition, but it got rescheduled without issue. Although we didn’t get to be on Ski Plane but on helicopter both way, the scenery is still worth it. Magnificent view from the flight!

      Great experience
      We had an amazing experience flying over Aoraki/Mount Cook. The helicopter pilot Mark did a great job of pointing out interesting features and telling us stories. We were lucky that the weather was so clear. Beautiful place and an overall fabulous experience.

      Amazing tandem sky dive experience
      The team at Mount Cook were so professional and friendly. They went out of their way to ensure I could skydive for the first time on my birthday at short notice. They were so safe in their practice and the easy banter got rid of my nerves within minutes.😁The views, the feeling, the rush and the pride following completing this was incredible. This was my first but won’t be my last skydive and that is thanks to Nick who was with me all the way on my tandem. A must do activity with the best team 😎🪂

      Stupendous views and total serenity on the glacier
      OMG, what an amazing ride in an equally amazing place. The views are stupendous and by landing on the upper glacier, you feel you are in another world. Mark, our pilot, is hugely experienced (never felt unsafe) and knows the Mt Cook area like the back of his hand. Super interesting to hear about the various flights he does in the area for climbers and hikers. The mountains are tall and precipitous, yet the glacier is serene and soft. We did the obligatory snow angels and simply drank in the alpine atmosphere. Highly recommended.

    Thanks to the excellent team at Skydive Mt Cook, I was able to exceed my expectations of a first tandem skydive on my birthday. I decided to go the full Monty and jump from 15,000ft (5kms) up.

    The jump team gave clear and comforting guidance to the 2 of us that were jumping.

    The Mackenzie country is magnificent in summer and we had fantastic views through to Aoraki Mount Cook, and beyond.

    This is highly recommended for young and old.

    A very enjoyable experience! The staff were so friendly and my awesome tandem master was there to reassure me when I felt nervous. Even if you are someone like me who isn’t an adrenaline junkie or you don’t like heights, I think you will still have so much fun. This skydiving experience is such an amazing way to expand your comfort zone. I would recommend this thrilling, fun and rewarding activity to people of all ages and fear tolerance levels. I would definitely like to do Skydive Mt. Cook again!

    This was amazing - what a wonderful location for my first ever jump from a plane (tandem jump). I wasn’t scared for a moment - the staff were so wonderful. If I can do it at my age - 66 and way overweight - anyone can. It was a perfect experience from start to finish and I never felt anything but totally confidence in my tandem mate - and seeing the mountains, lakes and landscape from way up there was just stunning! A huge thanks to everyone at Skydive Mt Cook - especially the young man I jumped with.
