Frequently Asked Questions

What do I bring?

  • Any essential medication

  • 3 -4 layers of warm upper body clothing (jeans are not recommended on wet days, as they become very cold and uncomfortable to wear)

  • Sunglasses and sun protection

  • A drink and snacks are useful

  • A warm hat and gloves

  • A camera

  • Drones are illegal to use, please leave it in your car if you have one

All trips depart from the Fox Glacier Guiding building which is on the Main Road in Fox Glacier Township.

There is a 3kg or 6.6lbs limit per passenger for carry-on baggage. By travelling light, the easier the day is for you, and your body and it is good for the planet as lighter helicopter loads use less fuel. Please take only what is necessary for your glacier trip.

There is a large carpark which is located to the North of Fox Glacier Guiding's building.
