Hi Debra, Sounds like a big tick off the bucket list! The Fox Glacier and Mount Cook flight is a unique experience and we agree that photos do not do it justice. The memories will definitely last a lifetime. We hope the remainder of your holiday was equally as enjoyable as your flight with us, The West Coast Team
