When soaring in a fixed-wing plane from Queenstown to Franz Josef or Tasman Glacier, you may think the one-hour scenic flight is the highlight of this tour. But the best is yet to come. Switch to a helicopter and fly up to a landing point high on the glacier, where you’ll embark on a hike on the snow and ice. Wearing crampons, you’ll explore caves and see remarkable landscapes inaccessible any other way.
  • Hiking boots and crampons will be provided
  • An unforgettable way to experience the mountains
  • Don’t just look at the views: hike within them
  • This group tour is an economical way to ride a helicopter

Overall amazing
, Mar 2020
We were extremely lucky with the weather and the activity developed perfectly. Our pilot from Queenstown to Tasman Glacier base and return was James and he is an absolute legend!! He is very knowledgeable and friendly. Then our two guides at the Glacier, Sam and Chris, were amazing. They took care of us making sure we were stepping on the right spots and they also took us to really cool caves (as they knew the glacier very well). Highly recommend this trip!
