What To Expect
En route, listen to live narration from your experienced pilot and gaze out the panoramic windows to find a stunning frozen landscape below. Your helicopter hovers above a mantle of sheet ice and snow, then makes a thrilling snow landing at the summit of either the Franz Josef Glacier or Fox Glacier. Hop out to get up close to the breathtaking scene, including shimmering blue icefalls, ice caves, deep crevasses, pinnacles and seracs.
Take some time to pose for photos, capture the alpine terrain on camera and take in the mountaintop views over the valley beyond. After, settle back inside your helicopter for the short flight back to the base.
