Overview

Soar up to 6000 feet, looking down at the Franz Josef or Fox Glacier, and set foot on the snow. Soak up unparalleled views of New Zealand’s Southern Alps. No feeling comes close as being part of the breathtaking landscape by putting your foot on the ground at this elevation. This Spectacular Franz Josef or Fox Glacier Helicopter Flight offers you an opportunity to have a quick look around at our incredible glacier landscapes.

This flight takes off from our Fox Glacier and Franz Josef flight centres. Set aside 20 minutes.

For snow landings, please observe the following:

  • Don’t forget to bring sunglasses
  • Put on your hiking boots or covered shoes (trainers or sneakers acceptable)
  • Wear clothing appropriate for cold outdoor conditions as temperatures on the snow may sometimes be 5 to 10° cooler than temperature in the village. Our ground crew can advise you of what to wear so please enquire if unsure.
  • Ensure sufficient space in your memory card and/or phone. You will have plenty of opportunities to take fantastic photos. We discourage the use of (extendable) selfie sticks as they pose a safety hazard. 
  • Please note that during the flight, passengers are not allowed to use iPads to take photos as they can block the view of the pilot and fellow passengers. Please use other means of taking photos instead (like camera, phone or GoPro). 

Check-In Time:

Please arrive 30 minutes before your tour is scheduled to leave to allow enough time for check in, processing of payment and allocation of aircraft.
Duration of flight is only approximate.

Please Note:

We observe the following summer office hours: 7AM to 9PM/Winter office hours: 8AM to 6PM. Unless the weather prevents it and the pilot decides against it, snow landing is included in all standard flights.
