This activity will end right where it started.
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.

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.

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.
