Perfect day

Booked on behalf of my parents for their 50th wedding anniversary. Can’t speak highly enough of the staff I spoke to in the lead up to the flight and I know my parents are still buzzing from their flight. Everything from the pilot putting them at ease to landing on the snow. They loved it all having never done something like this in their lives. Would gladly use them again and highly recommend to others.

Awesome experience!

I took my wife and 9 years old son there and it is way beyond what you can imagine! I can still remember the colour of water is incredible! We landed on top of Glacier and my son is so happy with the whole experience! Highly recommended!
