This is a great way to take in the vastness of NZ South Island terrain. Our flight involved two stops, one on top of a glacier and the next a grassed mountain. Our pilot Chris was great in explaining the scenery and pointing out locations that featured in the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy. Our driver Darren who shuttled us to and from our accommodation to the flight was also fantastic giving some good advice for other things that we could do while in NZ.

Thank BIGbUrJe
