Neve Discoverer - 20 Minute Helicopter Flight

Take to the skies on a thrilling helicopter flight over the Franz Joseph or Fox Glaciers!

Highlights

  • 20 minute scenic flight
  • Snow landing

The rugged West Coast is home to some of the most dramatic landscapes in New Zealand where the mountains meet the Tasman Sea and where rainforests make way to Glaciers.

Only here can glaciers be found in such a majestic setting, in such close proximity to the Sea, making Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers truly unique.

Feel the anticipation build as you board our state of the art helicopter with large viewing windows and gently lift off on your adventure.

You'll experience awe-inspiring views from the get-go as we make our way to either the Fox or Franz Joseph Glacier.

This exclusive flight also includes a snow landing allowing you to play in the snow or simply soak up the stunning views of this untouched wilderness.

Come and experience with us a truly magical alpine wonderland...

Great experience!

Definitely a must do! The 20 minute scenic flight was great. Fantastic aerial view of the franz josef glacier with a brief snow landing for pictures and throwing snowballs at my wife... Worth every cent!

Hi Kuz, Thank you for leaving us an awesome review. We agree that one of our Scenic flights is a must do, as you cannot experience the full extent of the glacial views from the ground. The helicopter affords some incredible aerial views and the snow landing is such a highlight. We thank you again for leaving us some awesome feedback. Kind Regards, The West Coast Team

Awesome Heli Snow Landing

Our flight was postponed due to the weather. Staff changed it smoothly without hassle. With the price in here, worth to grab if you want to land on snow plus a few minutes of flight around.

Hi Nor, Thank you for leaving us a lovely review. We are so thrilled you enjoyed your flight with us and what a fantastic photo! We do our best to re-book our guests if their initial booking is cancelled for weather, however it does all depend on what spaces we have available and if it works with the guests travel schedule. Wishing you a safe journey home. Kind Regards, The Helicopter Line, West Coast

Unbelievable

Could not rate this tour higher! The views were spectacular. Our Pilot Chris was incredibly friendly and great with our little girl who is only 5. He made the experience even better by playing in the snow with her when we landed. The views from on top of the mountain were amazing and the flight in to the glacier is jaw dropping. Such a memorable experience. Highly Recommended

What an experience!

Wow! What an absolutely fantastic place to take a helicopter ride. The scenery is absolutely picturesque and landing on top of the mountain just feels like you’re in another world. The staff were all extremely friendly and professional and made the experience that much more enjoyable. Mum and I absolutely loved this and we couldn’t recommend it any more highly!
