My wife and I joined two other mountain bikers on a transfer from Karamea to Browns Hut for the Heaphy Track. The bike carriers were quite impressive, but might not be big enough for FAT bikes (worth asking the company before you book). It was...More

Hi Daniel, Thanks for the great review, I'm pleased you enjoyed the service. Good comment on the FAT tires, they do fit into the loops and are no problem to carry! Cheers Mit

Best way to take in the breathtaking wonder that is Tasman & Golden Bay. For such a steal (starting at only $40!!), it is well worth the experience. Your captain will be the affable Mit, one of the best dudes you'll meet. His knowledge of...More

Best way to ride or walk the heaphy. We done the 'full package' flying from takaka airport to brown hut and from karamea back to takaka airport. Good banter and a genius way of carrying bikes under the wing.

We visited recently and had an amazing trip! Brilliant views of Golden Bay, had a good laugh and got lots of information about the area! Would definitely recommend and would love to go back for a longer flight!

Flying back from the end of the Heaphy with Mit was the best decision of the whole trip. Great flight, great chat and we would do it again tomorrow! And the next day :)

Mit picked us up from Karamea and dropped us at the start of the track. Such great flight, service was brilliant. His knowledge of the area was extensive. Couldn't recommend this company enough!

Thanks so much to Mit for flying us from Karamea to Nelson - we were booked with another operator, but they had a breakdown. So Mit to the rescue! Great flight- fantastic views and a hard case commentary. Highly recommend

We are planning to walk the heaphy track and fly with Mit to Browns hut to start the walk. Just wondering how close to the start of the track Mit lands the plane?

The landing strip is quite close to Browns Hut, a 20 to 30 minute walk. To get an exact idea I would advise emailing Mit directly at Adventure Flights.
