What You Can Expect
The twin-engine helicopter hovers above remote mountain landscapes draped in ice-blue snow. Marvel at the panorama from your unique vantage point as your pilot details the sights through descriptive narration, then lands safely in the snowfield atop the glacier.
You’ll step out into a winter wonderland with views of Aoraki/Mt Cook, which towers 12,217 feet (3,724 meters) above sea level. Then re-board the helicopter for the ride back to the tour base, where you’re transferred to your hotel.
Best experience of a lifetime :
The tour was very good but it is too short
It would be great if spend more time on the mountain
We thoroughly enjoyed this trip and it is well worth travelling to Piahia to do so. We even got to see dolphins! Fantastic!
What a ball! this was a definite highlight of our trip, the scenery is just amazing, the time just flew, will definitely be on the to do list on our next visit to NZ, but perhaps for a longer trip, enjoy
This trip is one of the most amazing scenic journeys I done in my life. Visiting Fox Glacier terminal itself is beautiful but the helicopter ride to the mountain top gives you a spectacular views which un-fortunately can't see from the bottom.
fox glacier was fantastic. The ride was smooth and provided a quick way to explore the glacier. The pilot did not say much, and could have provided commentary both during the ride, and on the ground on the glacier.
