We recently had to good fortune to take an hour long tour with our pilot Chris. We spoke to him nearly everyday about our trip. We finally got a beautiful day on Thursday 3rd July. Words cannot really describe the amazing beauty of the views from a helicopter. Our boys aged 10 and 11 had the time of our lives, Mum and Dad too. It is an experience that we will all remember. Chris shared his knowledge with us and answered loads of questions. It was very exciting to fly close to the mountains, see all the places they filmed Lord of the Rings and to land on the mountain. We filmed on our Gopro and Chris took some great photos. The flight back over the Lake was amazing. It was over too soon. It may seem pricey but it is an experience not to be missed. Thanks also to Nikki. I think we were just as excited as the kids!
