What You Can Expect
En route, listen to live narration from your experienced pilot and gaze out the panoramic windows to find a stunning frozen landscape below. Your helicopter hovers above a mantle of sheet ice and snow, then makes a thrilling snow landing at the summit of either the Franz Josef Glacier or Fox Glacier. Hop out to get up close to the breathtaking scene, including shimmering blue icefalls, ice caves, deep crevasses, pinnacles and seracs.
Take some time to pose for photos, capture the alpine terrain on camera and take in the mountaintop views over the valley beyond. After, settle back inside your helicopter for the short flight back to the base, then be transferred to your Franz Josef hotel where your glacier tour comes to an end.
A great experience
This tour was amazing and they also changed our booking to the other town that we been on the other side of the glacierwas a GPS bad location from Here Services and we ended up on the other side 50km, now I always double check with Google maps. I would also go with glacier hiking but for fast pace you can use only this helicopter tour.
Awesome flight, we were lucky to have clear weather which made it even better. Tour was really well organised and the pilot was great.
This tour was amazing!
A stunningly beautiful day up on the glaciers. Our pilot Tyson did a wonderful job of taking us up there and back, and telling us about what we were seeing. We were impressed that he didn't rush us while we were out on the glacier, and offered to take our pix. And he printed off his own pix for us to purchase at a reasonable price. Awesome trip!
It was just a fantastic experience, the tour guides were very helpful and friendly. aA must do for all tourists
