Activity description

Riding a helicopter is a lot of fun! Now imagine doing it over one of the biggest glaciers in the world: Franz Josef Glacier. Then why not take a hike on it? Franz Josef Glacier Guides can make it happen!

Join Franz Josef Glacier Guides on a heli hiking experience you'll never forget. Right from the moment you step on the heliport the thrills commence, you'll board a helicopter and a highly trained pilot will take you to the skies. The view from above is incomparable!

High above the Franz Josef Glacier, you'll witness its magnificence. Then you'll land on it and start a 2-hour hiking trip on the ice. A knowledgeable and friendly guide will lead through one of the world's most pure glacier sceneries. As you make your way you'll come across spectacular ice formations of blue ice!

The contrast of the ice with the lush green mountains surrounding it will also leave you speechless. You'll enjoy panoramic views and plenty of photographable opportunities.

After this amazing trip, you'll go home with a memorable experience of New Zealand that you will surely cherish forever.

At the end of the trip, you will receive free entry to the Glacier Hot Springs!
