Get ready to put on your protective headphones and board the helicopter for an adventure above the stunning Fox Glacier! Known as the longest part of the West Coast Glaciers, this historical beauty is a sight that shouldn't be missed when visiting New Zeland.

You will soar 6,000 feet in the sky, enjoying unforgettable views of the eternal ice and dreamy panoramic sceneries. During the 20-minute flight, you will learn exciting facts about the glacier and its surroundings. For example, Fox Glacier is only about 25 km from the neighboring Franz Josef Glacier, one of the lowest glaciers in the temperate zone. Relish the remarkable views of New Zealand's highest mountain, Mount Cook (also known as Aoraki), before you land in the middle of the endless ice. This helicopter experience will be an unforgettable memory for you and your loved ones.

Please note that depending on the weather conditions, an ice landing might not be possible.
