Twin Glaciers by Helicopter

Twin Glaciers by Helicopter

on-the-day excursion


Short description

Take in both Franz Josef and Fox Glacier from up high before zooming in with a snow landing


Recommended for:
Activity adventure | Mountains | Natural world

The South Island’s rugged west coast is delightfully untamed; it’s where the mountains meet the Tasman Sea and rainforests give way to colossal glaciers. Nowhere in the world can these icy behemoths be found so close to the coast. To get a full reading of their scale, this helicopter tour takes in both Franz Josef and Fox glaciers, departing from either of their respective towns. You’ll be able to watch these incredible phenomena wind slowly down their valley carves from their origins high up in the mountains. Unsurprisingly, it’s all steeped in Maori legend. You’ll also get up close with a snow landing, dwarfing yourself in the white expanse and following in the footsteps of explorers past.
