Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Request your preferred departure time in advance, then make your way to the helicopter base — along the main street of the Fox Glacier township — to begin your tour.

Take a seat in your helicopter and, with the blades whirring overhead, soar high over the glacial icefalls and crevasses of Mt. Cook — widely considered the most impressive of all New Zealand’s peaks.

Gaze out over the landscape below and marvel at panoramic views stretching all the way from the coast to the Southern Alps. Along the way, fly over Fox Glacier, Franz Josef Glacier, and Mt. Cook.

Then, land on the snow on the top of Mt. Cook and touch down for a moment on New Zealand’s highest peak. Hop out to capture the scenery on camera, then return to base in the Fox Glacier township to bring your tour to an end.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
Franz Josef Glacier
Your tour begins when you arrive at base on the Main Street of Fox Glacier. Take off on this 40-minute ultimate Mt Cook helicopter flight when you fly over the glacial icefalls, crevasses and the neves. You will experience views from the coast to the mountain tops as you get to see both of the amazing West Coast Glaciers (Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier) and New Zealand’s highest peak, Mount Cook. 
Duration: 15 minutes
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Aoraki/Mount Cook National Park
Cross the Southern Alps spine and circle to the top of the magnificent Mt Cook before taking the opportunity to top it all off with a spectacular snow landing, getting your feet on snow and taking the best holiday photos.  This is the best helicopter experience on the West Coast and perhaps even in all of New Zealand.

It was a great experience, just too bad that we couldn't really get good photos 'cause of the seating.
