Franz Josef Glacier Snow Landing Helicopter Tour

Explore the awe-inspiring ice falls of the Franz Josef Glacier from sea level rising to the heart of the magnificent Southern Alps during this exciting and stunning flight.

Franz Josef Glacier Snow Landing Helicopter Tour

Franz Josef Glacier provides some of the most stunning ‘ice architecture’ of any Glacier in the world. The Glacier was in a state of advance until 2008 when it started retreating. Following a spectacular collapse of the terminal face in 2012, it is now only accessible by helicopter.

From sea level rising to the heart of the magnificent Southern Alps, this flight explores the awe-inspiring ice falls of the Franz Josef Glacier. The flight includes a snow landing, an excellent opportunity to really take in the surroundings and breathe the clean alpine air - it doesn't get any fresher than this!

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