Taking a guided walk on a glacier has to be one of the coolest experiences you'll have in New Zealand. Whether hovering over the spectacular ice formations by helicopter or strapping on crampons to hike the ice, Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers are truly unforgettable destinations.
A helicopter is the ideal choice for sightseeing, taking you up close to towering peaks, crevasse-filled glaciers and sparkling waterways. Embark on a Twin Glacier flight to marvel at the mantle of pure white snow, landing at the head of either Franz Josef or Fox Glacier.
Make a snow landing and walk along the Main Divide before heading back down towards the lush rainforests at the edge of the Tasman Sea.
Experience this wonderful alpine environment and get up close to touch snow, viewing the glaciers as they carve their way slowly down the frozen valleys from their origin in the mountains high above.
