Overview

Be mesmerised with the raw, natural beauty of the Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers in one Twin Glacier scenic helicopter flight where you’ll see more towering peaks and an unparalleled view of the Southern Alps of New Zealand from high up in the air. Admire from above the soaring pinnacles, gaping crevasses, and the deep blue ice characteristic of the glacier country. Double your excitement on this Twin Glacier tour!

You may even be able to cross over the ridge separating the two glaciers if the weather permits. It’s an incredibly breathtaking moment in a helicopter. After landing on the snow, make the most of your time to capture fantastic photos of Mt. Tasman and Aoraki/Mt. Cook, the highest mountain in New Zealand.
This flight takes off from our Fox Glacier and Franz Josef flight centres. Set aside 30 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.
