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

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...

Amazing

Amazing! We were very blessed to have perfect weather. From the service at the front desk to our pilot Mike who took us up to the top of the mountain, the whole experience was awesome and the ride was very surreal. Definitely recommend this if you’re ever in Franz Josef. My family loved it and want to do this again when we come back.

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

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!

Breathtaking

What an amazing experience. 20 minutes is probably all you need, the views are stunning. If I’d had more time at the top I probably would have got more creative with the photos, but still enough time to get some awesome shots. Completely different feeling to being in a plane.
