Hi - how long is the helicopter flight on the ice climb please? Is it a tour as such I.e. pointing things out or just a means to getting to a place. How big are the climbs please? What are the group sizes? What is the weather like currently, have the trips been running? Thanks


Heya, The flight will be 10 mins each way approx. I would describe it as more of a transport to the location but the pilot does sometimes point out some of their favourite things and the journey is fantastic! There is a max of 1 guide to every four guests. The trips have been running and the weather has been great!
