11 Franz Josef Glacier
Discover the wonders of both the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers in one scenic flight.
Soar across pinnacles and crevasses and witness the deep blue ice of glacier country. The ultimate trip for any glacier lover.
When the weather is right you may have the opportunity to cross over the ridge separating the two glaciers – an absolutely jaw-dropping moment in a helicopter. Take advantage of the terrific photo opportunities of Aoraki/Mt Cook (New Zealand’s highest mountain) and Mt Tasman while landed on the snow.
This flight departs from our Fox Glacier flight centre and Franz Josef flight centre.
Allow 30 minutes.
Essential gear for snow landings:
Covered shoes (sneakers or trainers are fine) or hiking boots
Wear comfortable outdoor clothing suitable for wearing on the snow. Occasionally the temperature can be 5-10 degrees cooler on the snow than it is in the village. Check with our ground crew if you are unsure of what to wear
Plenty of room on your memory card and/or phone for photos. Please note: Selfie sticks, especially extendable ones, are a safety hazard and are not to be taken
Please note that we do not allow passengers to use iPads to take photos during flights as they can impede the view of the pilot and other passengers. You're very welcome to bring along another means of taking your photos (phone, camera or GoPro are all great).
Check-in time is 30 minutes before your scheduled departure time. This allows time for payment processing and aircraft allocation
Please note: snow landings are subject to weather conditions and are at the pilot’s discretion.
