Take a scenic helicopter tour of the world renowned Franz Joseph & Fox Glaciers!

Highlights

  • 30 minute scenic flight
  • Alpine landing

This 30-minute scenic flight will provide a bird's eye view of one of the most incredible landscapes in the world.

Only in the West Coast of New Zealand can glaciers be found in such a dramatic setting. An awe-inspiring place where the mountains meet the Tasman Sea and where rainforests make way to Glaciers.

You'll experience breathtaking views from the moment we are airborne from the comfort of our aircraft with large viewing windows. Capture mesmerising views of the glacier as it winds slowly down the carved valleys from its origin in the mountains high above you.

We will then land at the head of either the Franz Josef Glacier or Fox Glacier so you can capture the perfect selfie, play in the snow or simply soak up the incredible alpine atmosphere. A truly unforgettable adventure in an untouched alpine wonderland!

Must do in Franz

Pilot Andy was awesome! Very knowledgeable and could easily tell he was well experienced which made me feel at ease. Flying up into the glaciers was just magical. Totally recommend an Alpine landing to play in the snow and get some amazing photos! Cheers team!

Absolutely amazing experience!

We absolutely loved our helicopter flight to Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier. Our pilot Kody was sensational as were the ground crew who explained the process and safety procedures. Would recommend to anyone and everyone!!

Holiday flight

We were warned just before take off that the weather was closing in & we might not be able to land on the Fox glacier. Fortunately, the weather held and we were able to step out of the helicopter on to the snow and had a fantastic view of the mountains. The trip was amazing & the pilot was great & took photos for the passengers. This was not the cheapest excursion I have ever done but was certainly one if not the best experience I have had. It was worth every cent I paid.

Absolutely Amazing experience!!

Loved every minute of it! Staff were very friendly, pilot was very informative. Absolutely stunning scenery and landing on the Glacier was amazing. There was enough time to take pictures, throw some snow balls and take in the experience. Would recommend to anyone.

Wow it was amazing.

Check in was perfect, the lady was friendly and very happy. The pilot was great and told us all about the mountains and took photos when we landed. The whole experience was just out of this world . We were very lucky to have blue skies !
