This 40-minute aerial tour offers commentary by the professional pilot and provides stunning views of Aoraki/Mt Cook, Tasman Glacier and the Tasman Sea from above. Appreciate the South Island’s imposing vistas, from alpine snowfields to the lush rainforests at the coast.

Arrive at the helicopter base for a 40-minute flight. Buckle up inside the 6-passenger twin-engine helicopter before the pilot takes off for the impressive Southern Alps, with a remote snow landing above Fox Glacier.
From your viewpoint in the air, look down upon the gleaming blue ice peaks, crevasses and frozen rivers as your helicopter soars through this alpine wonderland. Listen as the pilot delivers expert commentary en route to the Fox Glacier snowfield where you’ll make a soft landing at approx. 7,000 feet (2,134 meters).
You’ll walk with your guide along the main divide, which boasts impressive views of Aoraki/Mt Cook and Tasman Glacier. Back in the air, descend toward the coastal rainforests bordering the Tasman Sea before returning to the tour base.

Tour was cancelled due to weather conditions and we were offered a cheaper alternative which we accepted and we got our partial refund 2 weeks later

An exciting experience but scary! Your life is in the hands of the expert pilot. Superb views.

Apart from the fact that the day was perfect - no wind, no clouds, the whole experience was 6 stars. Weighing the people was a good safety measure; no baggage was another one. We were impressed with the pilot's concern for the other passengers when one of the passengers brought an ipad, thus tending to block the view of the others. He put a stop to it, very kindly. His knowledge was great, and this is one of the events where I'd say to everyone "Save your pennies and do this trip. Magical! Many many thanks.

Hi
We were seated in the back seat behind the pilot and could hardly get a decent view throughout the flight. I have registered a complaint with your customer care team. Expected a lot more for the price paid! Would only recommend to others if they were able to get a front see in the helicopter.

Had to wait a day because of the weather but well worth it! The front seat helped but it was definitely the trip of a lifetime! The photographs that I took were fantastic and who would have known that a glacier was blue?

Our first helicopter flight! My 80 and 82 year old parents were with us and found the experience awesome. It was probably the highlight of our holiday and would recommend it as a must to anyone. Any age can do it!!!
