Fox or Franz Josef Glacier including snow landing (allow 20 minutes)

Fly from our Franz Josef or Fox Glacier Heliport to the top of the Fox or Franz Josef icefall and land on the snow for a fantastic photographic opportunity. This entry level flight will show you why so many are impressed by the sheer crevasses and pinicles that form the ice scapes of the Fox and Franz Josef Glaciers. Be sure to book from the correct departure location (Fox or Franz Josef) - book for a Franz Josef departure if you are overnighting at Franz Josef OR book for a Fox Glacier departure if you are overnighting at Fox Glacier.
