Overview
On a helicopter tour you can get a close-up look at the Fox Glacier and go beyond what you can see on a simple walking tour. Be amazed by the spectacular views of the mountain, glacier, and ice falls, before landing and hiking through the hard-to-reach terrain. All necessary ice-hiking equipment will be provided, including sturdy leather boots, so you don't need to worry about safety or comfort.
Highlights
  • Hike with a professional guide who will keep you safe
  • Return helicopter transfers and ground transport are included
