Tour description provided by Viator

Fly over two of New Zealand's most famous glaciers on this 30-minute helicopter flight.

Marvel at the mantle of pure white snow as you land at the head of either the Franz Josef or Fox Glacier. This landing site is the perfect place to view the incredible natural phenomenon of the glaciers as they wind slowly down the carved valleys from their origin in the mountains high above you.

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.
