Twin Glacier Flight With Helicopter Line
From $364.83pp

From Franz Josef Village, hop in your helicopter with your wonderful and experienced pilots who will take you up into the sky over the mountain ranges.

Once in the air, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the Franz Josef Glacier and Fox Glacier all in one go without a worry in site.

First, you will fly over all of the local townships in the area then up to the mountain tops to view both of the glaciers in all of their glory, flying up into the higher reaches. Upon reaching the top, your pilots will make a landing to allow you and your date or group to disembark into the snow for some amazing photos and a stroll at the top of the world.

The world is yours at the top of the glaciers so breathe it all in before you head back to the base as you reflect on the beautiful sights.

Do you offer payment plans?

Absolutely, we understand that paying off a big trip in one go isn’t always that easy. We offer flexible payment plans to suit all types of travellers with zero interest or fee’s (minimum $100AUD deposit required).

Do I need travel insurance?

We endorse the recommendation of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade that all travelers take out travel insurance. If you already have Travel Insurance please understand that it is your responsibility to ensure that your Travel Insurance covers you for all of the adventure style travel you have booked with us.

Can I book a package but travel in the reverse direction?

Absolutely, just let us know your preferred start and finish location and we’ll make it work.

What is the best way to travel Australia?

There is definitely no wrong way. We recommend either taking a WHIMIT or Hop on Hop off bus pass such as Greyhound or renting a campervan with some mates and hitting the open road. If you feel like getting pretty adventurous and want to get amongst the true Australian terrain, a 4WD may be better suited for you. Enquire now and we can help you find the most suitable transport option.

What if something comes up and I can't make my tour?

We get it. Life is all about the unexpected, especially when you are travelling. If you are unable to make your pre-arranged tour you will need to reach out to our support email so we can give you a helping hand. In all cases we strongly recommend having a valid travel insurance policy which covers you for unexpected cancellations.
