Twin Glacier Helicopter Flight from Franz Josef

This fantastic tour provides the unique opportunity to see two of New Zealand's most famous glaciers in one incredible helicopter flight and even includes a snow landing on one of the glaciers itself!

The Franz Josef and Fox Glaciers are New Zealand’s most well-known glaciers, perhaps due to their striking sapphire-tinged ice and crisp, white appearance and flying over these spectacular natural wonderlands is an exhilarating experience.

After being collected from your Franz Josef accommodation, you will join your crew and get ready to take to the skies!

Gaze down in awe as you soar over the mountains and forests, tracking the glaciers' paths which wind down the valleys from its origins in the peaks.

If that's not enough - you will also get to land at the head of either Franz Josef Glacier or Fox Glacier.

Snow landings last for around 8 - 10 minutes and are provided as a fantastic photo opportunity for participants to capture the breathtaking alpine surrounds for picture perfect opportunities. Tour concludes approximately 30 minutes after commencement, at which time hotel drop offs will commence.
