WHAT TO EXPECT
See Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier in a whole new way on this epic scenic flight.
Enjoy a 30-minute experience with up to 10 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.
Throughout your flight, you'll enjoy informative pilot commentary about your surroundings.
