A very amazing experience in the helicopter of the Franz Josef Glacier!
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 79 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
The Franz Josef Glacier helicopters staff were all friendly and helpful especially Ada. The pilot Benjamin had many years of experience and was friendly and professional.
The staff at the Fox Glacier helicopters office were also very helpful with advice about booking our scenic flight. Would definitely recommend this company!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Best thing we have ever done in New Zealand. Leaves out of the Fox Glacier area. 30 minute flight and landing on the glacier. So rad!
This trip was on our bucket list and we weren't disappointed. Franz Joseph township appears to simply serve the heliport which is a hive of activity. Not sure exactly why we chose this firm but certainly glad we did. Excellent front of house and safety talk. Reasonably modern helicopter and knowledgeable pilot. We chose the longer trip around Mt Cook and then landing on Fox glacier. This was a definite highlight of our holiday and although expensive on the face of it, it was a truly priceless experience.
Weather not good enough for a heli-hike so we opted for a scenic flight with snow landing and really loved it. Awesome overview of the area.

Helicopter flight over Franz Josef and Fox Glacier. Good efficient service, friendly staff and good value.
Very nice people, good explanations - I thoroughly recommend.
Very professional operation, felt in safe hands and the pilot was very knowledgeable about the area around the glaciers and Mt Cook. Would recommend.
