  • Snow landing

Why Do We Love This

We love that a snow landing is included on this trip. The chance to fly over the ice then actually explore from the ground is amazing! 

What to Expect

Fox Glacier is truly a natural wonder. Now is your chance to discover the Fox Glacier's unique landscape! Discover the incredible beauty with a scenic flight and snow landing.

The Fox Glacier is one of the few in the world which exists in such close proximity to both an ocean and rainforest. This unique setting makes for some of the most dynamic ice formations of any glacier!

It's the biggest of the two West Coast glaciers and is 2km longer than Franz Josef Glacier. It has a gradual incline and impressive views of the mighty Mount Cook.

Your day begins with a scenic helicopter flight into the Southern Alps. Keep your eyes open as you fly, the Glacier will take your breath away. Snap some photos as you travel before embarking on the most exciting part of your day, a snow landing! 

This is a 20-minute experience.  Check-in closes 30 mins before departure. Please ensure you are at the Fox Glacier Helicopter Base on time.

Please note you will need to ring the base 24 hours before your flight to confirm your booking (+64 3 751 0803). Flights are not confirmed until the Glacier Helicopter Base has confirmed they have availability and weather conditions are suitable. 

Please note drones are not permitted.
