Let the alpine wonder of Fox Glacier captivate your senses on a 20-minute scenic helicopter flight and snow landing. From your vantage point in the air, you’ll experience the solitude of the remote landscape, nestled in the Southern Alps of New Zealand’s South Island. Hover above the ice-blue fissures of Fox Glacier before landing in a snowfield with views of Aoraki/Mt Cook.
  • 20-minute Fox Glacier helicopter flight with snow landing
  • Glimpse Mt Cook (Aoraki) and the Southern Alps from the air
  • See panoramic views from a snowfield atop Fox Glacier
  • Hear informative narration from a professional pilot
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.

Amazing scenery. Landing on the snow and walking in knee deep snow was an experience I will always remember. The pilot Ben was very polite and helpful. The flight was terrific even though it was only a 20 minute tour I would love to have done the 40 minute tour as I wanted to see more. The staff in the tour office were also helpful and polite. The Helicopter Line tour company I would recommend.

The tour was very good but it is too short
It would be great if spend more time on the mountain

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.

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.

es war ein unbeschreibliches Erlebnis mit dem Helicopter über den Gletscher zu fliegen.
Nette Leute, gute Vorbereitung und Sicherheitseinweisung. Man fühlte sich die ganze Zeit sicher.
