I can’t rate this experience highly enough! We originally booked a helihike at Franz Josef but this was cancelled due to weather (very common due to weather on the west coast) so we booked mount Cook instead. This was a great choice because the helicopter...More

Guys. (And gals.) This experience is one you shouldn't miss. My friends and I did the Cool Climbers Experience in November 2017 and had the lovely Tom as our guide. It was a thrilling experience and one that I was soon forget. They take care...More
