Why do we love this

We love that you get to see Franz Josef AND Fox Glacier from the sky on this trip. It's often hard to choose between the two, but you get a different vantage point of both on this trip!

WHAT TO EXPECT



See Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier in a whole new way on this epic scenic flight. 

Choose between 30 or 40 minutes in the air, soaring from Franz Josef Village over both the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers. You'll travel over the townships before following the ice flow high up into the upper reaches. 

Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers are two of New Zealand largest glaciers and flying above them you’ll catch some amazing views. Flying is a great way to appreciate the incredible natural phenomenon and take in the towering ice formations and vast glaciers

Admire views of the Southern Alps and striking Mount Cook, before the highlight of your day, a snow landing! Land at the head of one of the glaciers and survey the path the glacier has carved below you. Jump out onto the ice and take it all in, making sure to snap plenty of photos. 

On a 40 minute flight, you’ll also fly over the Tasman Glacier on the eastern side of the Southern Alps and close to Mount Cook/Aoraki, New Zealand’s highest peak.

Throughout your flight, you'll enjoy informative pilot commentary about your surroundings. 

Trip is 30 or 40 minutes total including snow landing. Please check in at Helicopter Line offices 30 minutes prior to departure time. (The Helicopter Line Main South Road, Franz Josef, New Zealand)
