Make your way to the helipad in central Franz Josef township, and check in for your sightseeing flight. Flights take off throughout the day and you can request your preferred departure time when booking, so you’re free to plan your trip as you please.
With your pilot at the controls, take a seat in your helicopter and take to the skies above Franz Joseph. From your high vantage point, enjoy panoramic views over the forests and icefields of the Southern Alps and the Westland Tai Poutini National Park.
Fly over the mighty Franz Joseph glacier, and see the stunning ice features, cracks, and crevasses from above. Then, touch down on the glacier snowfield and take a walk across the ice. Breathe in the pure alpine air, and capture the scenery on camera.
When your time on the glacier comes to an end, return by helicopter to base in Franz Joseph to conclude your tour.
