    Tour Description

    New Zealand is full of incredible natural wonders – from snow capped mountains to mirror like lakes, but there’s nothing quite like exploring the frozen landscape of a glacier!

    And this half day Heli Hike on Fox Glacier combines two bucket list items – hiking on the icy wilderness and a scenic helicopter flight!

    You’ll soak up the amazing aerial views over Fox Glacier and the surrounding area before landing  and gearing up in your crampons to explore the amazing ice caves, arches and gorges that make up the glacier.

    Your experienced guide will tell you about the amazing history of the glacier and the role of similar glaciers in creating the amazing landscapes that cover New Zealand.
