Unforgettable experience. Vicky and Belinda were brilliant, professional and fun, absolutely top service. Dion the pilot, every bit as professional and plenty of great banter. Can't recommend enough.

30min flight and landing on top of Fox Glacier was amazing! A must do if you can. Scenery and views unbelievable. Went on a sunny day and was perfectly warm in jeans and a t-shirt. Pilot and girls in the office were great. If you staying in Franz Joseph can do similar flights

Our flights depart from both our Franz Josef and Fox Glacier bases. We suggest flying from which ever base your accommodation is located however our Fox Glacier and Mount Cook flight only departs from our Fox base. The views from our helicopters are amazing and it is the best way to see them. Thank you for an awesome review. Kind Regards The West Coast Team

The flight was very impressive and wonderful!! Definitely worth it! I'd like to have a bit longer flight time. You are flying about 10-15 minutes and stay at the glacier for about 15-20 minutes to take pictures and enjoy the nature. If you have the money, do it!

Hi Leyla,Thank you for your review.The snow landings are roughly 5-10 minutes but can feel longer as one explores the snow on our landing sites. The flight are definitely worth doing as you see more from the air than you can from the ground. Kind Regards,The West Coast Team
