Tour description provided by Viator

Depart Fox Glacier Village, fly over the legendary Fox Glacier and snowfields and watch the crevasses and ice forms race by below you. Land in the snow above the icefalls of the glacier and experience the magnitude of the scenery surrounding you. Then let the impressive presence of Aoraki (Mount Cook) amaze you as you explore it's majestic west face, before descending down into the valleys below.

With its ability to hover, land and provide access to some of New Zealand's most remote areas, a helicopter is the ideal choice for sightseeing that will take you up close to towering peaks, crevasse filled glaciers and sparkling waterways. Learn about the stunning landscape as your professional pilot delivers an informative commentary en route.
