Twin Glacier Helicopter Flight from Franz Josef

Low Price Guarantee
No Booking Fees
Fly over Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier on a spectacular helicopter tour that includes a landing right on the snow. Seeing both glaciers on a single helicopter flight offers incredible perspective and understanding of New Zealand’s massive ice sheets, and you touch down on one of the glaciers to snap up-close photographs of the frozen terrain.
  • Spectacular aerial views of Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier
  • Live pilot commentary points out landmarks and unique features below
  • Walk out onto the snow after an exciting glacier landing
  • Bring home photographs of the glaciers and the stunning Southern Alps
What to Expect
Make your way to Fox Glacier helicopter base, then step into your helicopter for a flight over the icy landscape. Spot ice fields, deep crevasses, and icefalls far below as you soar across Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier; watch for the differences between the two maritime glaciers. As you fly, your pilot shares commentary on the glaciers, then guides the helicopter down toward the snow for an exciting glacier landing. This is a great time to snap dramatic on-ice photographs and to get shots of the Southern Alps’ beautiful mountain scenery. Following your time on the glacier, return to the helicopter for your flight back to the Fox Glacier helicopter base, where your two-glacier tour concludes.
