Overview
On a helicopter tour you can get a close-up look at the Fox Glacier and go beyond what you can see on a simple walking tour. Be amazed by the spectacular views of the mountain, glacier, and ice falls, before landing and hiking through the hard-to-reach terrain. All necessary ice-hiking equipment will be provided, including sturdy leather boots, so you don't need to worry about safety or comfort.
Highlights
  • Hike with a professional guide who will keep you safe
  • Return helicopter transfers and ground transport are included
  • An ideal adventure for active travelers seeking a memorable experience
  • See parts of the glacier that most visitors miss by staying lower down

From check-in, gearing up, safety briefing to takeoff and landing back at the helipad, everything was professional and safe. Lucas found great ice caves for us and took heaps of photos to share. Always making sure we were safe up on the ice. Much appreciated!
