Hello, I was just reading some reviews and we're wanting to see the mountains and the glaciers and see a review from someone saying this flight was amazing. We'll be there in September 19, 20 and 21st. Will there be snow and glaciers at this time of the year? Also, what if the weather's bad - what's your cancellation policy? 07/31/2017 10:35:54

We are interested in taking one of your mail flights but would like to know if we see everything that is shown on the video on your website? Please can you let us know as it will determine whether we book something else along with your flight?

Assuming we would need to book in advance also, rather than the day before say - I am concerned about weather.

We will be there 19, 20 and 21st Sept.
