Get up close to the whipped cream–like peaks and deep crevasses of Fox Glacier with a helicopter ride to its summit. Following hotel pickup, you’re transferred to the Fox Glacier base to board your six-passenger helicopter. After a safety briefing, your professional pilot takes to the skies on a 20-minute aerial tour over the scenic Southern Alps.
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.
