Fox Glacier Snow Landing Helicopter Tour

From sea level rising to the heart of the magnificent Southern Alps, this flight explores the awe-inspiring ice falls of Fox Glacier.

Fox Glacier Snow Landing Helicopter Tour

Fox Glacier is located in the Westland Tai Poutini National Park and takes its name from Sir William Fox, who visited the Glacier as Prime Minister of New Zealand in 1872.

It is one of the few Glaciers in the world which exists in such close proximity to both an ocean and a rainforest. The unique setting of Fox Glacier and speed of the ice-flow (up to 3 metres per day in places) make for some of the most dynamic ice formations of any glacier.

Take to the skies above the Fox Glacier Township before heading towards the Fox Glacier and exploring the dynamic icefalls. A snow-landing above the glacier allows you to set foot on a largely inaccessible area and breathe in the pristine alpine air as the majesty of the landscape surrounds you.

All flights are subject to minimum numbers & weather conditions. Flights are available through the day, please enquire with your preferred flight time.
